COVID -19 and its impact on so many levels has not stopped one of our most admired and tireless business and community leader Barbara Ward JP said Commissioner Shane Fitzsimmons.
Barbara was commended by The Hon Natalie Ward MLC for her incredible effects during a very challenging time.
I am pleased to announce our Northern Province Member Highlight this month is Mrs Barbara Ward!
During the COVID-19 pandemic shutdown, Barbara has been active in helping her community. She has assisted in providing fresh food packages, facilitating regular exercise programs and raising awareness of mental health resources through her work leading share.org.au. Through her work at Nutrition Australia NSW, she has delivered food hampers with fresh vegetables and fruit to families far and wide across NSW. Barbara has personally purchased and delivered groceries together with her husband to vulnerable people all over Sydney, including Easter eggs and hot cross buns. All this while personally cooking meals for people in isolation, ringing members and setting up Zoom meetings so people remain connected. Barbara is also active in Lupus Australia, Lifeline and the Rotary Club of Sydney. Thank you Barbara for all the phenomenal work you have done during this challenging time.
