ACH Group is pleased to welcome Jane Reilly OAM as its ambassador.
Jane is one of South Australia’s most recognised and loved media presenters. She is passionate about South Australia and all South Australians.
Jane has enjoyed a distinguished media career spanning four decades, including 17 years as a news and weather presenter for Adelaide’s Network Ten.
She won a TV Week Logie Award for Most Popular Female Personality in 1984 and is involved in numerous charities including Variety SA, The Children’s Charity, St John Ambulance and Royal Society for the Blind.
Jane’s media career was launched in 1974 after winning the Miss Australian Beach Girl Title.
In August 2015 she received an Order of Australia Medal for services to the broadcast media and charitable groups.
Currently a valued contributor of the FIVEaa Radio Breakfast Team, Jane is the program’s roving reporter, travelling far and wide searching for quirky and fun stories.
Jane has a six-year-old Golden Retriever, a lovely partner and two great sons.
She loves to grasp life with both hands and make the best of what life dishes up.
Her personal mantra is “Get on with it, this is not a dress rehearsal!”.
Jane says she is looking forward to raising awareness of ACH Group’s commitment to supporting ‘Good Lives for Older People’.
“What I love is that ACH Group really shines a light on the wisdom of older people in our community,” she says. “They challenge the stereotypes of ageing and with their support, you can do as little or as much as you like, whether it’s help with the shopping, maybe getting to those appointments, helping with the gardening, or looking at an alternative style of accommodation.”
