Charity Fundraiser recognised with Award

A local community advocate has been recognised for her compassion and determination with the Glenelg Shire Youth Award for May.Georgina Meyrick-Garnier, 16, has been an active member of Relay For Life in Portland for more than 10 years, starting her journey fundraising as a preschooler.  She participated in the first Ankle Biters team, created to show support for Paul Beattie, and has been an active fundraiser in every year they have participated. Georgina even joined another local team to continue raising money for the event when the Ankle Biters could not participate. The quiet achiever works in the background volunteering her time, and though she is not usually one to be in the spotlight, that has changed recently. Eight months ago Georgina shaved her hair and raised $6689.95 for Relay For Life. In the time since she has raised awareness for cancer research and Relay For Life to the youth in the community through newspaper articles and school newsletters, public speaking at school assemblies and having everyday conversations with her peers across the entire shire.While being in the spotlight has often caused Georgina some challenges, she always kept the end goal in mind: raising money for cancer research, and educating and promoting Relay For Life in her local community.The best part of her public campaign comes in the form of positive feedback from a broad range of people in the community, including cancer sufferers and survivors.

• The Glenelg Youth Network aims to recognise the achievements of young people living in our community by offering monthly awards to those aged 12-25 who have demonstrated excellence within their peer group, contributed to the community and/or have been an inspirational role model.Anyone can nominate a young person, all you need to do is fill in the nomination form and submit it by 4pm on the last day of the month.For more information please contact the Glenelg Shire Council’s youth development team.
