Shadow Minister for Communities, Ros Bates congratulates Alpha's Kristy Sparrow on her accolade as the Queensland Rural Regional and Remote Women's Network Woman of the Year, along with sponsor Amanda Stein, Panda Pearls and the Member for Warrego, Ann Leahy.

The frustration of running out of data every month and the effect it was having on the education of her twin children gave Kristy Sparrow an idea to begin a Facebook group for people in a similar plight to share their frustrations and to seek possible solutions.
