Amanda on quest to support others

MEMBERS of Kyogle Lions Club are delighted to sponsor Amanda O'Reilly in the 2014-2015 Lions Medical Research Personality Quest.

The quest is an integral part of fundraising for the Lions Medical Research Foundation to continue funding aspiring medical researchers.

With the enormous support of the Lions community and the generosity of other supporters, foundation- funded researchers have, for almost 50 years, helped many in our community and around the world.

The eldest of three children born to Mark and Paula O'Reilly, Amanda, together with her brother Blake and sister Olivia, is a fifth generation Kyogle O'Reilly.

Completing her education at St Brigid's Catholic School and Trinity Catholic College, Amanda has attained her Diploma as a Hairdressing Salon Manager and is proficient as a beautician, currently employed at Kyogle's Hairport hairdressing salon, where her vivacity and caring attitude have made her a popular choice as a quest entrant.

Growing up on a farming property, her interest in local community activities and a desire to contribute something worthwhile to the people she meets led Amanda to participate in the Kyogle Show and her enthusiasm resulted in her being crowned Miss Kyogle Showgirl in 2013.

Carrying out the duties involved, culminating in competing at the Royal Easter Show, has inspired Amanda to continue helping others and promoting Kyogle and the extended community. Kyogle Lions Club is committed to raising funds for vital medical research through a variety of activities throughout the next eight months and would love your support.
