Amy Parmenter debuted for the Giants Netball team this year but in a change of pace, in the off season, she will be tie dying hundreds of shirts to raise funds for The Children’s Hospital at Westmead.
Considered a rising star in netball due to her tenacity midcourt, 21-year-old Amy was recently interviewed by Studio 10 about her fundraising to help cancer patients and the special relationship she has with a Cancer Centre for Children patient, 13-year-old Molly Croft. Amy met Molly and her family at a Radiothon at the Hospital over a year ago and, after becoming friends, Molly even helped tie dye some of the shirts.
Amy lost her mother to cancer and said of her fundraising, “I felt I could make a difference and hopefully help people going through similar stuff.”
“It started about three years ago in 2017, we wanted to raise some money for cancer research, and it was in memory of my mum because we’ve always loved tie dying. We did some and had a really good response.”
Amy said she is inspired by Molly and wants to raise $30,000 for The Children’s Hospital at Westmead by selling the shirts.
Molly contributed the saying ‘look for a rainbow in every day’, which she adheres to herself in looking for the positives no matter how unusual, and which is printed on the shirts.
Thank you to Amy Parmenter and Molly Croft for their hard work and dedication in raising money for sick children at the Hospital and making a difference.
