JESSICA Balmer wasn’t into football until she started a job promoting the Dockers.

She raises money to help get Fremantle players out to schools through her work with marketing company New Mounts Sport.

The Reporter found the Nollamara resident fundraising in Midland and Lesmurdie.

“I love Freo and their fans,” she said.

“They go completely all out at games, decked out in purple.”

Jessica said she would like to see a derby grand final.

“I would be fine if West Coast won; as long as one West Australian team does,” she said.

She plans to catch this weekend’s preliminary final action at her local, St Andrew’s Tavern in Mirrabooka.
