MEL Prior is one U.G.L.Y bartender.

In fact, she hopes to be crowned for the title of Queensland's U.G.L.Y bartender of the Year - Understanding, Generous, Likeable, You.

The U.G.L.Y fundraiser is an annual statewide competition that raises funds for the Leukaemia Foundation.

The competition is held in licensed venues across Queensland with all proceeds benefiting those with leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma and related blood disorders.

The bartender who raises the most money will be crowned the winner.

Mel, who has a target of $20,000, has been working at the Glenmore Tavern for about a year.

She was born in Rockhampton but moved to England for a year for a working holiday, which ended up lasting 10 years.

She operated her own pub in Barnet, London, before moving back to Rockhampton with her partner so they could raise their daughter in Australia.

Mel's fundraisers include a cocktail party, family trivia night and a $10,000 money board. The bartender who raises the most money will receive a $3000 travel voucher, and their supporting venue will have a chance to win a Hoshizaki rice machine worth $7500.
