Jackson Collier hasn’t been at Currajong Disability Services long, but he has already left a great impression on everyone.
From his silky licks on his Maton guitar to being Masterchef in the Currajong kitchen – he is taking opportunities to try his hand at a number of activities and skills. The latest culminating in cakes for Fire & Rescue NSW Parkes 417.
“It is just another way to say thank you to our frontline essential workers,” said Indigo Kriedemann of Currajong. “We just wanted to let them know how grateful we are here at Currajong.”
Zack Gibson of Fire & Rescue NSW Parkes was rapt with the gesture. “Jackson is an outstanding young man and a great cook,” he said. “I have no doubt everyone at the station will love the cakes too!”
“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.
Jackson’s grandfather, Neil Unger said he was very proud of his grandson and his efforts.
The Currajong kitchen has been in full swing over the past few weeks with members making treats for the essential service sector from medical professionals to firefighters and police.
