Jackson Collier has not been at Currajong long, but he is already leaving a great impression on everyone. From his silky licks on his Maton guitar, to now Masterchef in the Currajong Kitchen. Jackson is certainly taking opportunities to try his hand at a number of activities and skills with the latest culminating in cakes for Fire & Rescue NSW in Parkes 417 with plans to expand into Forbes.
“It is just another way to say thank you to our front-line essential workers,” said Indigo Kriedemann of Currajong.
“Organisations like Fire & Rescue NSW Parkes 417 are a credit to themselves and the community,” she said, “we just wanted to let them know how grateful we are here at Currajong.”
Fire & Rescue NSW Parkes 417 Zack Gibson was rapt with the gesture and paid tribute to Currajong and Jackson.
“We are very thankful and like Currajong we appreciate all they do as a front-line essential service,” Zack said, “Jackson is an outstanding young man and a great cook. I have no doubt everyone at the station will love the cakes too!”
The Currajong Kitchen has been in full swing over the past few weeks and has been well received by the essential service sector from medical professionals to firefighters and police.
“It’s these small tokens of goodwill that will get us all through and it’s great the participants of Currajong are finding such ways to contribute positively to the community during such a difficult time,” Zack said.
Autism awareness is not the same as being aware of Autism. Awareness means to understand the challenges faced by people with Autism as a step towards creating an Autism friendly world.
Simple actions like allowing extra time to process information or providing written details can help with difficulties in communication, interaction and sensory processing. This can make a difference by helping people with Autism to feel a stronger sense of belonging in the community of Forbes.
