Community Recognition Statement: Nepal Fundraisers

On 13 May 2015, Jenny made a Community Recognition Statement in the NSW Legislative Assembly acknowledging the work of people in her electorate engaging in fundraising to support people affected by the earthquakes in Nepal.

Ms JENNY LEONG (Newtown) [1.43 p.m.]: I draw the attention of the House to the work of the Asian Australian Alliance Womens Forum, members of the Nepalese community and BloodWood Restaurant and Bar in Newtown in fundraising efforts this week to support recovery efforts following the earthquakes in Nepal.

Two fundraising dinners were held in Newtown on Monday night. I commend the Asian Australian Alliance Women's Forum and the Nepalese community for their fundraising dinner at Kammadhenu on north King Street, supporting Women for Human Rights and the Single Women (widows) Group in Nepal. I particularly acknowledge the hard work of Anjana Kingsley and Shamim Anwar, a representative of the Nepalese community, who spoke at the event.

I also acknowledge Claire Mitchell and her team, who held a fundraiser at BloodWood Restaurant and Bar on south King Street on the same night. I commend their activity in raising money for the G2 Boys Community Club in Nepal.
