Aussie Hands has been thankful to our past Ambassadors, two very valued members of our Aussie Hands Family.

Tom Covell – NSW – 2020 – 2022

Amanda Palmer – TAS –  2018 – 2023

We have our current Ambassador in VIC – Dave Serpell. Get to know a bit about Dave.

Dave Serpell


Dave was born with Symbrachydactyly on ANZAC day 1999 and has grown up with Aussie Hands for as long as he can remember (kind of the reason why it started). Dave has developed long term relationships with many Victorian Aussie Hands families and mentors younger members. Dave enjoys public speaking and has extensive expertise and knowledge on various social media platforms. Dave is committed to liaise with key stakeholders to raise awareness of hand differences (in general), but to also support research by fundraising for the Australian Hand Difference Register. Dave also holds the Vice President role on the Board of Management.

Dave is determined, driven and always willing to go the extra mile to help, assist and make sure that by representing Aussie Hands as Ambassador he can better the lives of many children and parents. Dave is honoured to be appointed the 2023 Victorian Ambassador for Aussie Hands and looks forward to meeting many families and connecting during our events.
