MOREE community legend Lorraine Bartel has been announced at the 2018 Northern Tablelands Woman of the Year, celebrating her years of work helping the town’s seniors, fundraising for noble causes and pushing for improvements to vital services.

 

Local State MP Adam Marshall made the announcement today and congratulated Lorraine for her outstanding achievements, ahead of the 2018 NSW Women of the Year Awards ceremony in Sydney on International Women’s Day tomorrow, 8 March.

 

“Lorraine has been a fierce and tireless advocate for senior citizens in Moree, regularly advocating for additional facilities and services with a small army of volunteers,” Mr Marshall said.

 

“She spends countless hours working support with the Moree Homes for the Aged reserve trust, helping to raise money to provide more suitable housing for elderly locals, many of who are infirm or who have disabilities.

 

“What little spare time that leaves Lorraine is spent supporting the Moree Lions Club, of which she is a founding member, or preparing a series of entertaining and enriching events for the next Seniors Week.

 

“Lorraine’s driven and selfless work has had a profound impact upon countless older residents in Moree, giving the town’s elders a chance to embrace their senior years with comfort and dignity.

 

“For that reason, I’m thrilled to see Lorraine’s hard work be officially recognised as Northern Tablelands Woman of the Year.”

 

Statewide Award winners, as voted by the public, will be announced at the Awards ceremony.

 

The NSW Women of the Year Awards program recognises remarkable women across the state who have achieved inspiring things in their careers, in business or in their communities.
