Sarah Fletcher

Greetings Port Lincoln Community, my name is Sarah Fletcher and I am proud to be an entrant in the 2014 Tunarama Ambassador Quest.

I would like to begin by thanking my sponsors Geoff and Kathy Nottle of Eyre Travel Port Lincoln. Their generosity and support is greatly appreciated.

I was born in Port Lincoln and I completed all of my schooling at St Joseph’s School. In 2008 I relocated to Adelaide to begin my studies at the University of Adelaide. Now 5 years later and I have graduated with a Masters of Law, Bachelors of Law, Bachelor of Commerce and Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice. I returned to Port Lincoln in November last year to take up employment as a solicitor at Coates Lawyers. On weekends I really enjoy playing sports. During summer I play softball for Roadrunners Softball Club and in winter I play netball for Wayback Netball Club. This year I have also become involved with Mentoring EP and I mentor a Year 12 Port Lincoln High School student.

I decided to enter the 2014 Tunarama Ambassador Quest because I want to make a positive difference to our Community. I am passionate about Port Lincoln and I feel privileged to be in a position to be able to help members of our community who are less fortunate. The Port Lincoln Community has given me so much support over the years and now it is time for me to give back. Port Lincoln may have the highest number of millionaires per capita in Australia but we also have a very high number of people who are struggling. They cannot feed or clothe their children, they do not have furniture in their home and they do not have the skills to gain employment. People in our Community need our help. That is why I am raising funds for Community House.

The importance of Community House was highlighted to me last Thursday when I held a trading table at the Port Lincoln Civic Hall. I was talking to a lady about Community House and the Tunarama Ambassador Quest when she told me she had recently moved from Western Australia and she was doing it really tough. She didn’t have any furniture in her home, she was struggling to feed her children and she didn’t have any employment. I encouraged her to go to Community House for help.

I informed her Community House could provide assistance with furniture, clothing for her children, free meals on Tuesday nights, job training and resume assistance. The lady I met last Thursday is just one member of our Community who is in need. Each day Community House helps many people in our Community in a number of different ways.

In the words of Mahatma Ghandi “THE FUTURE DEPENDS ON WHAT YOU DO TODAY” .

Today – myself and my fellow 2014 Tunarama Ambassador Quest entrants are creating a positive future for the Port Lincoln Community.

The funds we raise will help others, 

The funds we raise will save lives, 

And….The funds we raise will give hope. 

Thank you for your support.
