Why I joined:
I am passionate about helping others to help themselves. After working in small communities in Cambodia and Africa, I was delighted to land in the Northern Rivers and find a group of like minded people who believed in the importance of giving back. Local philanthropy can make a real difference in the battle against disadvantage in regional areas.
