Good Luck to the Berowra Firecrackers

14 August 2018

Mr MATT KEAN (Hornsby—Minister for Innovation and Better Regulation) (13:42): I pay tribute to four amazing Berowra Heights mums who are competing in a 50-kilometre trail run to raise much‑needed funds for Oxfam. The Friday Firecrackers—Vicky Huyskens, Stephanie McLean, Sue Willmott and Nicole Jan—will run the Oxfam's 50-kilometre Trailwalker event at Bobbin Head on 25 August. They hope to complete the course in less than 10 hours. The friends, members of the Berowra Bush Runners, are motivated by knowing the funds they raise will help fight poverty around the world. They have been training in the bushland around Hornsby, which boasts some of the most beautiful parts of our shire. In conjunction with the run they held a pizza night in June, with the help of local pizzeria Bambinos Too, where they raised $4,170. Amazing work, Vicky, Stephanie, Sue and Nicole and I wish you all the best as you tackle the 50-kilometre run later this month.
