Jean’s biography was published in the NSW Women of the Year awards page as follows.

“Jean Vickery has been a dedicated volunteer for more than 60 years, through fundraising initiates, charitable services and as the Woolgoolga Lions Club President.

“Bushfire and drought relief are two of Ms Vickery’s focus areas, she travelled to affected communities to understand the best ways to help, Ms Vickery also assisted at her local bushfire evacuation centre through Red Cross Emergency.

“From fire to water, Ms Vickery is a driving force behind fundraisers for the Disabled Surfers Association, successful purchases include all-terrain wheelchairs to promote inclusivity.

“The octogenarian never lets age stop her from learning new things like technologies, Ms Vickery continues to motivate those around her and even made reusable face masks in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Jean told The News Of The Area how delighted she was to be considered for such an award.

“I was really shocked, I am so delighted, the next stage is in Sydney and I’m looking forward to it,” she said.
And Jean couldn’t hold back her excitement for her next project, a talent quest show.

“There are so many gifted youths in the area, we wanted to hold a talent quest night to give these talents a stage to perform on, it’s at our local Woolgoolga C.ex Club on 17 April and we can’t wait,” said Jean.
