Contributors in our community

Aunty Judith Jackson, or Aunty Jacko, as she is more widely known and Steve Pinnells were amongst Port Melbourne people recognised for their significant contribution in the community at our local Frances Penington awards. These awards acknowledge the contribution of people in community and public housing to the wider community.
Jacko, indigenous elder, provides outstanding leadership in everything she does, but most especially at our Rainbow Place, a regular gathering of our local indigenous community.
Steve is a stalwart at the Port Phillip EcoCentre, endlessly cooking for the many gatherings that take place there as well as cleaning up afterwards. He also volunteers at the Port Melbourne Neighbourhood House.
