Lo­cal model on fundrais­ing mis­sion for res­cue chop­per

Whitsunday Times - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

PROSER­PINE State High School stu­dent Kate Robb is on a mis­sion to raise vi­tal funds for the RACQ-CQ Res­cue Ser­vice.

Kate, who at­tends classes at the Mackay-based Brooke Lee Mod­el­ling and De­port­ment School, has en­tered a model search com­pe­ti­tion with all pro­ceeds go­ing to the res­cue ser­vice.

She has been spend­ing most of her spare time over the last few months drum­ming up as much ex­tra sup­port as pos­si­ble in the lead up to the event.

Af­ter hear­ing about the com­pe­ti­tion and the wor­thy re­cip­i­ent of the fundraiser, Mem­ber for Whit­sun­day Ja­son Costi­gan found time dur­ing his sched­ule to catch up with Kate at Dingo Beach to speak with her and show his sup­port for the event.

“I know of a few peo­ple in the lo­cal area who have been faced with life or death sit­u­a­tions and CQ Res­cue is the ser­vice that will never let you down,” she said.

This is the 15-year-old’s first mod­el­ling com­pe­ti­tion and she is look­ing for­ward to en­ter­ing in the evening wear cat­e­gory, with her stun­ning floor length gown.

Kate’s mother Vicky Robb said she is ex­tremely proud of her fundrais­ing ef­forts and hopes she can reach her goal of rais­ing $2000 for the ser­vice.

“It’s a great cause and a fan­tas­tic event be­cause it gives all the girls a great con­fi­dence boost,” she said.

Kate, along with a num­ber of other lo­cal girls, will be par­tic­i­pat­ing in the CQ Res­cue Model Search com­pe­ti­tion that will be held at the Mag­pies Sport­ing Club in Mackay on Au­gust 25.

If any­one would like to sup­port CQ Res­cue or make a do­na­tion to Kate’s cause, phone Vicky Robb on 0406 632 390.

FUNDRAIS­ING EF­FORTS: Mem­ber for Whit­sun­day Ja­son Costi­gan caught up with Whit­sun­day mod­el­ling stu­dent Kate Robb, who is on a mis­sion to raise funds for CQ Res­cue.
