Life Member since 1994
Born in 1937 and growing up in Wangaratta Victoria, Robin was one of the earliest members of Disability Sport & Recreation, serving as the first secretary to the Board between 1959 – 1965.
As a junior, Robin played football before he was involved in a car accident driving between Melbourne and Wangaratta. The injuries from the accident left Robin a paraplegic and through his rehabilitation he was introduced to wheelchair sports.
A mechanical draftsman by trade, Robin enjoyed being involved with Disability Sport & Recreation and ran wheelchair basketball competitions at Albert Park Stadium.
His years of service have been integral to the initial set up and long-term stability of our organisation.
