This Week on Destination Happiness..
Since Les Twentyman’s family took in a young boy who was going to live in an orphanage, he has dedicated so much of his life to giving to those who are disadvantaged. The Les Twentyman Foundation is dedicated to supporting our at-risk youth by helping get back on their feet and back into the community, ideally with a job. By directing people into sport or arts and drama, it give them a sense of belonging and a sense of direction.

99-year-old Boz Parsons spent over flying over 2,000 military hours flying across Europe in World War 2, later receiving a distinguished Flying Cross. After another career doing the male run over the skies of the Northern Territory he finally decided to settle back down on the ground.
You couldn’t keep Boz out of a plane for long though, flying his own plane for fun right up until the age of 92. He’s been happily married to wife Barb since 1947, having known immediately that she was the girl for him.
Tune in this Saturday at 12pm on Channel 9 to hear a few of Boz’s tips on happiness.
