Donna, a graduate of Moreton Bay College, lives with her husband and baby son, and together they run a Safari Business. Donna has a number of local projects - including providing fresh water, food and other support for the local school, Friends of Janet, Miranda Clark, Edward Kachab, and Lyn Hickey set out to raise $500 for a water tank, but in the end raised over $7000 and the cheque was presented at a wine and cheese function at Afrika Ink on Monday Sept 4th.
