Veteran actress and Gold Logie winner Rowena Wallace is hoping to reignite her career but is in need of funds to relocate from her rural home to being closer to a capital city.
In 2012 and 2013 she put Logies up for sale to help fund a move from Wonthaggi, Victoria, to Queensland.
A GoFundMe page has now been set up asking soapie fans to assist.
“Rowena’s life hasn’t been all glitz and glam. Like many, she’s done it tough and been very candid about it. Her financial issues exacerbated by devastating personal losses and health issues, and she has always been over-generous. Rowena has been forced to sell most of her 5 Logie awards. She’s been candid about scrabbling around to raise enough money to buy food for her adored dogs, Phoebe & Reubus. As a single woman her dogs are her life and she is always putting their needs above her own.
“As Rowena gets set to turn 70, she wants to give acting another shot and find a new lease on life. She needs to live closer to a major city, closer to the heart of the entertainment industry, and closer to her support network and loved ones but has no means to move from her rural Victorian home.”
