I have been a member of the Weengallon Pink Ladies Day since 2011, when as President of the Talwood Kindergarten I was invited to join the committee as their numbers were very low.
My youngest daughter Lily then attended Weengallon Kindergarten for 12 months. I have seen the event go from strength to strength over the years & am now immensely proud to be part of an organisation which aims to raise funds so selflessly to aid those less fortunate that themselves.
In 2016 I stepped up into the role of Committee President & shortly afterwards, in a bitter twist of fate, was diagnosed with breast cancer myself. However, with the support of my amazing team we continued to work towards our 2017 day & were able to organise the most successful Weengallon Pink Ladies Day yet.
I was once again inspired & in awe of what a small committee of rural women (& a few wonderful men) are able to achieve. Although I grew up in Somerset in SW England, I now live 50 kms east of Weengallon at Talwood, where my husband Bill & I run our family beef & cropping business. We have three daughters, Georgina, Annabel & Lily.
