Kathy Bond

I was born in Barmera in the Riverland and as a child we had the opportunity to move from place to place which lead me to doing the same when I left school and gave me the opportunity to experience different regions and enjoy what they had to offer.

Having two beautiful daughters put my life into perspective and this is when I decided to settle in Port Lincoln as this region provided a vast array of opportunities not to mention beautiful coast lines and beaches.

My daughters are now fully grown and I am very proud of them and it is time for a new beginning for me and this is one of the reasons why I chose to enter the 2014 Tunarama Ambassadors quest.

The charity I have chosen is Little Bags Of Hope. This is a new charity which was started by Catherine Higgins and Brooke Coxs.

Everyday hundreds of children are removed from their families and home for a variety of reasons and Little Bags Of Hope strive to provided just that “bringing a little bit of hope in the shape of a bag. They provided back packs to 0 to 18 yr olds which are stocked with essentials items for the children who are placed into foster care. These bags contain a range of personalise essential item that are age appropriate.

My sponsor is Coles, Port Lincoln and I have been working for them for two years and during this time I have become a member of team circle and first aid officer. I enjoy my role as a first aid officer and have  won the caring passionately award for assisting a woman by administering first aid. As a result of assisting this woman a friendship was formed and is still going strong today.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank my manager at Coles Jayne for her encouragement and on a journey that we are both going to embarking.

I would also like to thank the Port Lincoln Community for their generosity, my fellow 2014 Tunarama Ambassador Quest entrants and the Port Lincoln Tunarama committee.
