Sheaffe in personality quest mix
DANIELLE SHEAFFE is this year’s City of Lismore Lions Club entrant in the Lions Medical Research Personality Quest.
Club president, Rod Johnston, said Danielle suited the position because ‘she is a very vivacious young lady who is clearly focused’.
“All entrants need to have that personality,” he said, “and the ability to raise money for research.
“We feel strongly that Danielle also has the creative ideas necessary to achieve that.”
The 21-year-old said she was happy to accept the invitation to enter the quest.
“My sister entered a couple of years ago,” she said. “She enjoyed it and it’s for a really good cause.”
“My fundraising for the foundation will include a movie night at Birch, Carroll and Coyle to see Life As We Know It on October 27. Entry, for $20, will include nibblies from 6.15, then the movie at 7pm. Anyone interested in attending can contact me on 6622 4011.
“I’m also going to organise a ten-pin bowling night, a car rally, maybe a mystery bus tour and a Pancake Day as fundraisers over the next six months.”
Danielle would like to see more help being provided to young disadvantaged people.
“I’ve been very fortunate with my life but there are those other young people who are worse off and it would be good to help them get their lives back on track.”
Proud dad Bruce said Danielle was always helping in some way.
“She came up through the ranks of Brownies and Girl Guides,” he said.
“She helps us at Lions with fundraising and similarly her mum with fundraising for Quota. Danielle has always understood respect and love and gives that back to us.”
The personality quest raises vital funds for the Lions Medical Research Foundation at Brisbane’s Prince Alfred Hospital.
