Our Patron


When Peter Hitchener isn’t reading the news to a near 600,000 viewers in Melbourne, he is spending a great deal of his time involved in community service activities.

As the Patron for Able Australia, Peter dedicates a considerable amount of time and compassion to improving the lives of people living with multiple disabilities.

Peter generously supports Able and has been our Patron for over 10 years.

Peter is a regular face at Able Australia events, community appearances and fundraising activities.
