Dancing on the crest of a wave

Lilah Deguitre celebrates the donation of $1000 from Woolgoolga Volunteer Sea Rescue to help raise $7000 for dance training



LILAH Deguitre is trying to dance her way to Sydney ? and thanks to the generosity of Coffs Coast people, she's a third of the way there.

The 17-year-old, who appeared in the Coffs Coast Advocate on November 24, has just received a cheque for $1000 from the members of Woolgoolga Volunteer Sea Rescue towards the $7000 cost of her dance course.

"I was in absolute shock when the Volunteer Sea Rescue rang me up at the weekend and said they wanted to donate $1000," she said.

"That's the great thing about Coffs Harbour. Once someone knows, they are more than ready to help."

The co-ordinator of Woolgoolga's Volunteer Sea Rescue beach markets, Kathy Day, said the $1000 was money raised from the Woolgoolga Beach Markets, held on the second Saturday of each month.

"We thought it was a worthy cause, because she is not sitting around doing nothing like a lot of kids, she is trying to help herself," Ms Day said.

If you want to help her, or buy a raffle ticket, but won't be in the city today, visit Crazy Rhythm Gear or phone 6651 6431.
