A Mulbring woman who coordinates donations for people in need has been recognised as Cessnock's Woman of the Year for 2019.
Bianca Judd was recognised for her outstanding achievements though community appeals, projects and community work.
The annual awards celebrate the outstanding contribution made by women across NSW to industry, communities and society.
Mrs Judd, with the help of her husband Mick and their children, established The Little Juddies, which provides assistance to people doing it tough.
“Bianca goes above and beyond to help people from many walks of life including farmers, domestic violence victims, the homeless, disaster relief and children’s charity Variety to name a few,” State Member for Cessnock Clayton Barr said.
Bianca and The Little Juddies partnered with Drought Angels to bring Christmas to drought-stricken farmers this past December.
The appeal generated 14 tonnes of presents for families who didn't even have Christmas on their radar.
