Nes and her friends set up a group who support the One Billion Rising movement and have formed a chapter in Parramatta. Each year the group hold an event where they raise funds for the Thelma Brown Cottage, a women and children’s shelter for people effected by domestic violence. Over the last 4 years the group have raised over $35 000 in cash and items, and are hard at work trying to raise more. This year the group were nominated for Parramatta Councils Australia Day Award in the category of Project of the Year, and they won!!! Well done ladies, congratulations and keep up the hard work!!
