Charity’s youngest corporate sponsor
LOCAL schoolgirl Emily ‘Alice’ Macdonald (7) came up with a clever idea to give back to her community and the environment during the last school holidays.
Along with her brother Andrew she held a stall on the footpath outside their house, selling their old books, and raised $42 to help buy formula and food for agile wallaby joeys that are being cared for by Wildlife Carers FNQ.
Emily decided to support the charity after helping her teacher, Kim Sandford, a wildlife carer, with feeding and looking after the joeys.
She is using the experience to gain her wildlife badge for Edge Hill Joey Scouts.
