Here are some of our celebrity ambassadors...




Michael Clarke


Michael Clarke, Australian Cricketer

Michael is Australia's 43rd Test Captain. Michael won the prestigious Allan Border Medal in 2005 for his exploits in an incredible debut Test season, won it in 2009 and again for a record-equaling third time in 2012. Since being named Test and One Day Captain in 2011 Michael has put Australia on course to regain the prized number one Test ranking.

Having had skin cancer, Michael is a passionate supporter of our skin cancer prevention and awareness campaigns.

"Playing cricket means I am outdoors during peak UV times, so I try to protect myself and keep an eye on my skin for changes. I was lucky my cancers were so visible, but they can be anywhere on the body so it's crucial to be vigilant."

Miguel Maestre


Miguel Maestre, Chef

Miguel Maestre is a chef, author and presenter on Network Ten’s The Living Room.

He has long been a Cancer Council ambassador. “I never realised how cancer can change your perspective on life until it affects your own family.

I will do anything to help raise money for Cancer Council and cooking is what I do best so hopefully with all my amazing cooking we can raise lots of money towards cancer research.”

Darren Robertson, Chef

Darren Robertson moved to Australia in 2001 and became head chef at Sydney’s internationally acclaimed Tetsuya’s.

Callum Hann


Callum Hann, Masterchef contestant

Youngest contestant and runner up, Callum Hann, put aside his engineering degree to compete in Masterchef Australia. Inspired by his father who passed away from cancer, Callum says he took over a lot of the cooking at home for his mum and sister. Having always followed the academic path, becoming a chef had never occurred to him until this point.

"I like to experiment with food and that's what my dad liked to do – see what’s in the fridge and try out new things," he says. On a whim Callum registered to compete in Masterchef Series 2, along with 7000 other hopefuls.


Peppa Pig


Peppa Pig

Peppa Pig is the much-loved TV program, airing on the ABC. With six series already created and a seventh currently in production, Peppa Pig is broadcast in 180 territories worldwide.

Peppa Pig and her family are proud to be ambassadors for Cancer Council and are ready to start helping little ones be smart about sun protection, healthy living and staying active. Lifestyles learnt in childhood can affect kids later in life, especially in cancers linked to sun exposure and obesity.

Peppa Pig and Cancer Council Australia have already launched a range of sunscreens that have become best sellers. This success encouraged Peppa to get even more involved in Cancer Council’s work to engage and educate young Australians and their families.
