San Community member named NSW Senior of the year

Well known to the San community, former San Foundation Board Member Dr John Knight has been awarded NSW Senior Australian of the Year.

Known publicly as Dr James Wright during a long career as a media medical advisor Dr Knight has been an advocate for good health and wellbeing for decades.

The San's new Clark tower 9th floor, the Knight Ward is named after Dr Knight.

In 1973 Dr Knight and wife Noreen established the Medi-Aid Centre Foundation to provide accommodation for the frail elderly without homes or support.

Dr Knight has always been a proud San supporter.

"My dad used to be the chaplain at the San [Sydney Adventist Hospital] at Wahroonga" he said.

"He used to say the person who gives really gets more out of it than the person who is receiving it."
