This traces back to his hard-working mother prevailing in difficult circumstances. The Christian Brothers provided support, taking Terry on at Parade College and then in the accountancy night school at St Joseph’s, North Melbourne.
In 1999, Terry formed a very successful organisation in the horse racing industry. Through an industry friend, he was introduced to the work of Edmund Rice Foundation and to the 500 Supporters’ Group MCG luncheons.
Learning of the great work being done, Terry has become a constant supporter and, through his racing industry networks has brought racing notables as speakers to 500 Supporters’ Group fundraising luncheons. Terry understands there is immense capacity to perform acts of good in this world. In his own words:
“What you give, you get.”
