The Daily Examiner - - CLARENCE VALLEY'S POWER 30 -

FARMER, ru­ral prop­erty sales spe­cial­ist and drought re­lief ad­vo­cate aren’t ti­tles nec­es­sar­ily as­so­ci­ated with some­one as young as Grafton’s Jojo Newby but she is all of those things and more.

The well-known Far­rell McCro­hon em­ployee wasted no time in help­ing our her fel­low pri­mary pro­duc­ers out west when the drought dec­i­mated their prop­er­ties and liveli­hoods this year.

The for­mer Daily Ex­am­iner pho­tog­ra­pher con­tin­ues to drive a very suc­cess­ful lo­cal cam­paign that has seen thou­sands of dol­lars raised and sim­i­lar val­ues in do­nated sup­plies col­lected for distri­bu­tion.

Not one to sit back, she also trav­elled con­sid­er­able dis­tances to de­liver the es­sen­tial sup­plies to the grate­ful re­cip­i­ents.

Some­how the busy ru­ral prop­erty sales­per­son also finds time to run her own prop­erty which pro­duces live­stock and crops.
