Julie is our woman of the year

JULIE Jardine has been announced as the 2019 Local Woman of the Year for the Coffs Harbour electorate today recognising her outstanding contributions to local charities and the community.

Member for Coffs Harbour Andrew Fraser congratulated Julie on the recognition.

"Julie Jardine fits the bill in every regard - she loves living on the Coffs Coast and working tirelessly to help improve the lives of those around her," Mr Fraser said.

"Julie is a successful businesswoman who has always felt the need to 'give back' by supporting many community organisations.

"Her passion is the Coffs Coast and Clarence CanDo Cancer Trust, which helps patients and their families experiencing financial difficulties.

"One of the qualities which impresses me most about Julie and the work she does is that she gets a kick out of helping others."

Julie was thrilled to be presented with her Woman of the Year certificate today by NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian, who is meeting with members of the local community during her Coffs Coast visit.
