This afternoon I was lucky enough to host a Q & A session with Jimmy Bartel at a work function. I am still trying to find the words to explain how much of a gentleman he is. After raising funds for his #faceuptoDV campaign, we put in a request for Jimmy to attend an afternoon focused on raising funds & awareness of the issue facing too many Australians; domestic violence. Jimmy's reply was a straight out 'yes'. No questions asked about money raised or the amount of people attending, Jimmy was in it for awareness alone, be it 1 person or 100 people. In a time of sportspeople too often making headline news for all the wrong reasons, Jimmy Bartel, as he has done for so long, is continuing to be a role model of the highest calibre, and today, he won more than one new fan. Myself included. A most sincere thank you from me to Jimmy for all he's done & I'm sure will continue to do.
