Jodi Bellchambers

My name is Jodi Bellchambers and I’m pleased to be a part of the 2015 Tunarama Ambassador Quest.

Firstly, I would like to thank my sponsor Woolworths Port Lincoln, and manager, Ashley, in providing this opportunity.

I have lived in Port Lincoln my whole life and I love it here. I work part-time at Woolworths and it’s so rewarding to be a part of that environment. I have played softball for the port Lincoln softball association for 10 years now and it’s so much fun.

In year 7 I was lucky enough to represent port Lincoln for SAPSASA. We went to Adelaide to play against 7 other teams from around the state. While we didn’t come first it was a great learning experience to better my skills and it was fun.

I have entered the quest because it is going to be an amazing experience, and to be able to learn something new, and possibly life changing. Being in this quest means I will get to experience something different and enjoyable. Being in this quest, I will gain confidence in my public speaking and increase my self-confidence. It will give me an opportunity to learn about the community here in Port Lincoln, to learn about its history that I probably haven’t known before, to learn about the Tunarama Festival, and an opportunity to raise funds needed in the community and its surrounding areas.

I believe this is one of the important organisation which services the community of Port Lincoln and nearby areas. Knowing from experience in which I like to share with you all, my mother was air lifted to Adelaide from Port Lincoln with the services of The Royal Flying Doctors Service. She was struggling through-out her pregnancy with my youngest sister, Leah, and if it wasn’t for them I wouldn’t have my mother and my sister in my life. The doctors told my mother if she went through with her pregnancy she wouldn’t survive the process because her placenta was dying and was killing both her and Leah. I am so so grateful and blessed they are still here with me, alive and well, with thanks to the Royal Flying Doctors Service.

The Royal Flying Doctors Service is a not for profit organisation. It all started in 1928 and a few years later it began to expand across the country. Central operations was formed in 1936 and operated in the South Australian section of Broken Hill. Today they own a fleet of 61 fully instrumented aircraft with the latest navigation technology.

I want to make a difference in this community and this town. I like Port Lincoln because it’s a small town that does so much for its community. By entering in this quest, it has given me an important and great opportunity to help raise funds to better the lives of our important community, and also to be apart of a tradition since Tunarama first started.

Thank you
