Jen Armitage – Harvey Brunswick Leschenault, Harvey

This week, we share a special bonus interview with Jen Armitage, who was the President of the Harvey Brunswick Leschenault Football Club, in the Shire of Harvey at the time of the Waroona-Yarloop fires that begun on the 6th of January, 2016.

Jen, like many other volunteers, was volunteering behind the front line to help keep everything going behind the scenes while the volunteers on the front line were out fighting the fires, her story is one of many.

Thank you Jen and all the families and others who have the backs of our incredible Bush Fire Volunteers.
