As Dolly’s Dream gathers momentum with each passing year, so too does the resolve of Tick, Kate and Meg Everett, to make the world a kinder place in honour of their daughter and sister Dolly.
In my chat with Kate this year, she shares what it is like during the lead up to Do It For Dolly Day for her family and the tremendous support they receive from so many people and just what that means for the charity.

When Queensland grazier Wallace Gunthorpe worked through a succession plan with his family, he found himself at a loose end.
Rather than slip into retirement life spending his days playing golf, a trip to Vietnam led him into Cambodia where he heard about this Aussie bloke who was helping the Cambodian people through a ‘cow bank’.
On his return to Australia, Wallace contacted that bloke Cosi Costello, with an offer to help him with Cows for Cambodia and the rest as they say, is history.
