Quotes attributable to Member for Wallsend, Sonia Hornery

“Once again the Wallsend electorate has shown how generous they can be by giving so much.”

“The office received donations from local schools, businesses and child care centres that had arranged collection drives.”

“In total there was more than five tonnes of non-perishable food items and almost $2500 in cash and gift cards to be given to farmers.”

“Our office was bursting at the seams by close of business Friday and it took six hours on Saturday to move all the items from Wallsend to Speers Point.”

“The day itself was a massive success with over 200 pallets of items donated along with $80,000 in donations of cash and gift cards.”

“It was great to see our community pull together to support the farmers.”
