The Hon Adam Marshall MP, Minister for Agriculture and Western NSW, Member for Northern Tablelands

Jennifer’s story is a wonderful example of the community spirit in Northern Tablelands and shows just what is possible when we come together to support each other in times of need. I’m hugely grateful to all the amazing people who responded so bravely and brilliantly in our time of need last summer when the fires caused so much devastation. Jennifer’s first thought was not for herself or her business but to provide food and shelter to people who had suffered the devastating tragedy of losing their homes. I fully support her nomination by EnergyAustralia for this award. We will never forget all those affected by the tragedies of the bush fires and we mourn those whose lives were lost.
