THREE young women will be taking the plunge and doing their part for the community as entrants of the Leeton SunRice Festival Ambassador Quest.
Jemma Leeson, Katelyn Mills and Sophie Litchfield have all put their hands up to participate in the quest, which is a key component of the biennial festival.
The Ambassador Quest was officially launched on Wednesday evening at the Leeton Visitor Information Centre, with the trio now able to get their fundraising activities underway.
Each entrant is being supported by a committee, which will receive a portion of the money raised, with their chosen charity to also receive a slice of the pie.
Community organisations and groups will also be able to apply for funds raised in the weeks after the final amount is tallied.
Leeton SunRice Festival director Julie Axtill said the entrants were keen to hit the ground running.
"All three of the ladies will have stalls at the Light Up Leeton (Christmas Fair) this Sunday to start their fundraising and introduce themselves to the community," she said.
