Emma Pycroft

My name is Emma Pycroft, I am 18 years of age and my sponsor for the 2010 Tunarama Charity Quest is the Eyre Peninsula Crows Supporters Group. I will be raising money for the Royal Flying Doctor Service, and the funds I raise will be going towards an i-STAT Biochemical Analyzer, which is a mini biochemistry laboratory in the aircraft, so the critically ill patients can have their blood tested during the flight, and then have the appropriate treatment given to them.

I was born in Port Lincoln where I went to school at the Port Lincoln Junior and Primary Schools up until late 2002, when I moved up to Lipson and attended the Tumby Bay Area School. I was there until I finished Year 12 in 2008, then moved back to Port Lincoln to start employment and part time study.

I am currently employed at the Double Corner Store, where I have been working since late January 2009. It is a great place to work, with fantastic staff and a friendly environment.  Also I am studying at TAFE externally for a Certificate IV in Residential Drafting that will hopefully lead me into University where I would like to complete a Bachelor of Architecture and maybe even Landscape Architecture.

When I can, I like to do my fair share of volunteering. I am currently a member of the State Emergency Service in Tumby Bay where I’m continuing to improve the many skills that I am yet to learn. Also at school I was an active member of the Youth Advisory Committee, and was involved in the very first Bands 4sure event for Youth Week in 2006 held at the Tumby Bay Yacht Club. It was very successful, and has been running every year since.

A huge passion of mine would definitely be music. I’ve been involved in music for a lot of my life, having started playing flute at a young age. I played in the Lower Eyre Peninsula Primary Schools Concert Band and the Port Lincoln High School Band which took me to a lot of new places. I am now teaching myself how to play the guitar as I like to learn new skills.

I am looking forward to the next few months, as I will be having fun, making new friends along the way and helping out the community that I have been involved with for the majority of my life. I would like to wish all the other Quest Entrants all the best for a great year to come.

Thank you,

Emma
