Paris Dickson

My name is Paris Dickson and with the support of Leyson Haulage & Earthmoving, I am excited to be an entrant for this year’s Tunarama quest. I am honoured to be raising funds for Yarredi Services.

I am 21 years old and was born in Port Lincoln where I have lived for the majority of my life. I graduated school from St Joseph’s where I spent most of my schooling, as well as attending school in Adelaide for 2 years. I also attended University in Adelaide, where I quickly decided I missed Port Lincoln and moved back home.

I am the youngest of 4 siblings and my parents are Noel & Deb Dickson, who own their own transport and sand business. Having grown up around the transport industry I have strong relationships and ties with local businesses in the same industry.

I am grateful that Leyson Haulage have given me the opportunity to be able to begin this journey, and I am thankful for Linda & Tony for so willingly sponsoring me and for the support they are offering me. Leyson Haulage is a local company based in Coffin Bay and Port Lincoln and operate a regular Port Lincoln to Adelaide Freight Company.

 

I have chosen Yarredi Services as my charity and I am thrilled to be given the opportunity to help raise funds for their cause. Yarredi are a local organisation that offer a variety of support services and programs for women and children affected by domestic violence.

I registered as a quest entrant as an opportunity to increase my own confidence and personal development, as well as to meet new people and gain valuable skills that will assist me in the future. I also believe having a positive presence and involvement in the community, is not only beneficial for those we are helping, but is also important for our own physical and mental health.

I am excited for the challenge ahead and thank everyone for their support. I look forward to this endeavour, and to help promote and shed awareness to domestic violence in Port Lincoln. I would also like to give the opportunity to wish the best of luck to the other entrants as we begin this journey.

Thank you.
