Taylor has women's award all sown up

Taylor Giltrap from Ballina High School was recently named winner of the annual Zonta International Young Women in Public Affairs Awards hosted by the Zonta Club of Northern Rivers.

The audience enjoyed short addresses from the six finalists on the subject of ‘success’ before Taylor was announced the overall winner. Taylor received $150 and is now eligible to progress from club level through to district, national and international.

The guest speaker for the evening was Beth Trevan, who is probably best known locally as the woman who spear-headed a campaign to raise money for the Lismore Base Hospital Children’s Ward some 21 years ago.

Beth gave an interesting presentation about her eight visits to Pakistan since 2000 during which she has worked as a volunteer on women’s health projects.
