Asha Hough – Derby District High School
|What we are fundraising for: Alongside a very enthusiastic social club we are planning several community events in efforts to raise money for Derby District High School. Monies raised at these events will be going towards a number of projects aimed at enriching the education experiences for all students from Kindergarten to Year 12 at Derby District High School. Our projects include, but are not limited to upgrades to our assembly area and aiding the funding of camps.
I am really looking forward to this year’s Boab Festival and raising money for some great causes in our wonderful town.
Rachel Cane – Derby Hospital
| I have lived in Australia for five years and before that in the UK and through all my travels and adventures I have never felt so welcomed and instantly accepted as part of the community as I have in Derby Town. So it will be my pleasure to be the Derby Hospital Boab entrant for 2013 to try and give a little bit back to the community that has welcomed this half English/half French wandering nurse so heartily.
I will be raising funds to purchase a portable ultrasound machine for the emergency department which can be useful in many situations for example trauma, maternity and minor injuries. It is a quick, safe and often vital diagnostic tool which can save lives in an emergency.
I will have a great committee behind me who will be helping to organise various events including a cocktail party, hospital Olympics, golf day and a quiz night. As well as raffles, 100’s boards and cake stalls. I am excited about being given this opportunity and look forward to meeting new people, while we celebrate the Country/Kimberly way of life. I’m sure I will be seeing you all at our awesome events over the coming months.
Teena-maree Taylor – 6DBY
|I have created new friendships and enjoying the fishing and camping also exploring what Derby has to offer. I am fundraising to purchase new office furniture and supplies to create a better work environment for the staff and visitors at 6DBY radio station.
I hope to see you all at my upcoming events and support with my fundraising it would be mostly appreciated.
Belinda Frost - West Kimberley (Derby) Regional Prison
|Since then, I’ve found that there’s a whole lot more to love about this town . . . the camping, the exploring, the fishing (even though I don’t eat fish!), the people and so much more!
There is a wonderful community atmosphere here & I’m proud to call Derby “my home”.
- I am putting my fundraising efforts towards supporting Derby Animal Welfare Group (DAWG) who rescue, foster and assist abandoned and injured animals here, in Derby.
I am an animal lover and responsible pet owner myself. So, I feel that DAWG is a necessary and worthwhile organisation in Derby, here to help those that cannot help themselves.
