THE Rotary Club has announced its 2018 Apple and Grape Young Ambassador - 21-year-old Bridget Anne Campbell.

Ms Campbell said she was excited about the chance to contribute to the community.

The sales assistant is studying business at university but has taken a year off and decided to donate her spare time to being a Young Ambassador.

"I have always really admired the work they do in the community and I was really involved with community events when I was in high school,” she said.

"I think this will be a really good way to spend my time.”

Ms Campbell thanked the Stanthorpe Rotary Club for sponsoring her.

She said she had always loved the Apple and Grape Festival.

"My dad is a member so I have been involved with them ever since he joined a couple of years ago,” she said.

"Having a service club as my sponsor is really good because there is already a nice sense of community and they are already passionate about fundraising. They have similar morals to what I have as well. It's a perfect fit.”

Ms Campbell said she was most looking forward to interacting with those involved in the festival.

"I am looking forward to making lots of connections, meeting all different people,” she said.

"Moving away (to Townsville) made me really appreciate Stanthorpe more and the community that we have here. It is really special and I am really excited to celebrate that and give back.”
