2016 NZGCF Award Recipient - Jan Barker

Dedicated, hard working, supportive, always at the end of the phone and nothing is too much trouble. Jan is the backbone of the Foundation and has worked tirelessly within the organisation for 7 years since 2009 and is an integral part of the NZGCF team. 

In addition to her significant volunteer work for the Foundation, Jan and her husband, Nick, also run their own successful plumbing business, K & B Plumbing. 

Jan is a very capable accounts person, running a large family owned business and has a vested interest in helping the New Zealand Gynaecological Cancer Foundation as she has also experienced cervical cancer. 

Jan and Nick have two grown sons and are making the most of their newly acquired ‘empty nest’ status to travel as much as possible.
