Phil Sargeson

2019 Queensland Father of the Year

Phil Sargeson is a proud father of two who selflessly devotes his life to helping those in need. In 2015, Phil and his wife Samara launched Cereal for Coffee, a charity that every week provides more than 1,100 school kids with a healthy breakfast. When Phil heard that one in five children arrived at school without breakfast, he knew he had to do something about it, and so he did. He is a role-model to his two kids, and a hero to his community.
