TravelManagers’ personal travel manager, Lucy Phillips, representative for Banksia Park in Adelaide is nothing short of adventurous.

In the last three months, Lucy has started up her own home-based host agency, moved cities from Melbourne to Adelaide with her three young children, and is a last minute participant in the Channel 7 television documentary ‘Adventure of a Lifetime’ being challenged to raise $5,000 in five weeks in support of Youth Inc. 0 (2)

“Being new to Adelaide, I jumped at the opportunity to attend a Youth Incorporated (Youth Inc) charity event to climb Mount Lofty. My desire is to contribute to the community through my business, make a difference, build networks and meet new people. Little did I realize I could achieve all of this and through a last minute cancellation become an integral part of fundraising for Youth Inc through their ‘Adventure of a Lifetime’ television documentary,” says Phillips.

The 2013 ‘Adventure of a Lifetime’ television documentary follows the success of last years’ inaugural fundraising and awareness campaign for Youth Inc, its largest project to date. Twelve inspirational participants from South Australia each commit to raising $10,000 over five months. Due to being accepted at the last minute, Lucy has been challenged to raise $5,000 in five weeks. To acknowledge and reward the time and financial contribution, each person will appear in the television documentary ‘Adventure of a Lifetime’ being filmed over a week partaking in surprise adventures. The 2013 filming will take place Tuesday 03 to Sunday 08 September with the documentary due to screen at a later date this year.

“Although it will be hard to leave my five year old twin boys and three and a half year old daughter for the week, the Youth Inc charity really resonates with me. It’s the perfect complement to my business specialising in transformational styled-travel that opens the heart,” says Phillips.

Family and business support has been invaluable explains Phillips.

“My mum has been amazing, also making the move to Adelaide to support me and my entry back into the travel industry. TravelManagers has been so incredibly encouraging, allowing a single mum to work around my family commitments in a business model that is flexible and profitable. The fact I can also help the local community is the icing on the cake. This is my absolute dream job.”

Fundraising activities to date include completing the 12km City to Bay Fun Run on 15 September, and organizing a red carpet movie night for the “premiere screening of Captain Phillips” with Tom Hanks accompanied by a raffle at a Hoyts  Tea Tree Plaza Cinema for 25 October.

“We applaud Lucy for her inspired approach to immersing herself within the community so quickly. Her proactive approach and entrepreneurial enterprise is an inspiration to all personal travel managers. TravelManagers loves to encourage and support any of its personal travel managers with their community involvement” says Michael Gazal, General Manager.
