Mod­el­ling to sup­port lo­cal chop­per heroes

Whitsunday Times - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

SHE may be a new face on the Whit­sun­day mod­el­ling scene but Paris Mar­shall is de­ter­mined to make her mark by com­bin­ing her in­ter­est in mod­el­ling with a mis­sion to raise vi­tal funds for the RACQ CQ Res­cue Ser­vice.

Paris has her eyes on the prize of be­com­ing the Whit­sun­days next Char­ity Princess and is plan­ning to gain as much com­mu­nity sup­port as pos­si­ble in the lead-up to the model search com­pe­ti­tion at the Mag­pies Sport­ing Club in Mackay on Au­gust 25.

Paris said she was lucky her fam­ily had never needed the as­sis­tance of the res­cue chop­per but was happy to be do­ing some­thing she loves while help­ing oth­ers.

“Ever since I was lit­tle we would run out and wave when we heard the sound of the chop­per fly­ing over our house,” she said.

“They do a fan­tas­tic job and need all the sup­port they can get so I am happy I have the op­por­tu­nity to help make a dif­fer­ence.”

This is the 15-yearold’s first mod­el­ling com­pe­ti­tion and she said she will be bat­tling a few nerves as she goes headto-head with over 100 con­tes­tants.

Paris’s mother Deb­o­rah Mar­shall said she was de­lighted with the pos­i­tive re­sponse re­ceived from lo­cal busi­nesses.

“We have a lot more fundrais­ing to do but it will be won­der­ful to see her walk­ing down the run­way,” she said.

A fam­ily fun day will be held at the Midge Point Tav­ern on Sun­day, Au­gust 11 fea­tur­ing hourly mon­ster seafood wheel­bar­row raf­fles, face paint­ing, live mu­sic, a jumping cas­tle and a goose club raf­fle with 100 prizes do­nated by lo­cal busi­nesses.

Mem­bers of the pub­lic want­ing to sup­port Paris or do­nate to her cause, can con­tact Deb­o­rah Mar­shall on 0427 476 260.

MOD­EL­LING FOR A CAUSE: 15-year-old Paris Mar­shall is go­ing that ex­tra mile to raise funds for the RACQ CQ Res­cue Ser­vice.
