I don’t really hold to the notion of heroes. I think people normally do the best with what they have and the circumstances they’re in. But if I ever was to appear in one of those vox pop interviews (or even a more stately, considered media interview) and they asked about a hero I would have to say that one of the people I admire most in the world, and think is absolutely inspirational, is Linda Beilharz. She’s just reached the North Pole. She skiied to the South Pole five years ago and has done other trips in between. It’s not that she has achieved these extreme goals but that when she gets back to Bendigo, any money she receives doing her talks on her trips go to charity. Go, Linda!
