Baylie Fletcher

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FEEDBACK -

BAYLIE Fletcher has loved ev­ery mo­ment of be­ing a part of the Moss­man Show Am­bas­sador quest.

The 15-year-old Moss­man State High School Year 11 stu­dent signed up for the am­bas­sador quest as a way to fur­ther help the Leukaemia Foun­da­tion and is glad she did.

“I was al­ready a part of the foun­da­tion and en­joy vol­un­teer­ing and thought this was a good op­por­tu­nity to go for it and help out,” she said.

Baylie has been rais­ing money by sell­ing raf­fle tick­ets out­side IGA as well as door-knock­ing and at­tend­ing events such as the Air­ing of the Quilts dur­ing Carnivale and the Laven­der and Lace fundraiser.

The keen dancer with the Port Dou­glas Academy of Per­form­ing Arts, who prac­tices three times a week in be­tween work­ing at Fresq juice bar, is keen to study medicine and be­lieves she has grown as a per­son by par­tic­i­pat­ing in the am­bas­sador quest.

“It’s given me more con­fi­dence and shows I can help peo­ple,” she said.

“And it’s been re­ally good to work with my friends to raise money for a wor­thy cause.”
