MEMBER for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall has congratulated Glen Innes local Mary Hollingworth for being named as the winner of the 2023 NSW Woman of the Year Community Hero Award at a special ceremony in Sydney this morning.

“Mary is the absolute embodiment of what a community hero is and everyone who knows her will agree this award is justly deserved,” Mr Marshall said.

“Mary is incredibly active across a range of groups and causes in the community and hence, she is one of Glen Innes’ most recognisable faces.”

Mary is the current Chair of the NSW Rural Women’s Gathering and a long-term volunteer with the Rural Women’s Network.

“She has worked tirelessly, along with others, to deliver 500 events, seminars, functions, information and training sessions for rural women and families in the Glen Innes, Deepwater and Tenterfield regions,” Mr Marshall said.

“Among her many roles and past experiences, Mary is an active member of the Glen Innes Red Cross and was a member of the Glen Innes Show Society Ladies Auxiliary for 25 years, serving as president from 2004 to 2008.

“She is one of the most energetic and positive people around the district and I am so proud of her and that her selfless dedication to the community has been recognised in this way.

“Congratulations to Mary on this thoroughly deserved award and recognition of years of dedication to her community and so many causes and groups.”
