Whitsundays welcomes Camp Quality kids
CHILDREN suffering from cancer and their families enjoyed a relaxed weekend in the Whitsundays with Camp Quality.
The Rotary Club of Airlie Beach got on board to host a barbecue at BIG4 Adventure Whitsunday on Friday night for the 69 visitors from all across North Queensland.
Rotary club member Neil Cawthorne helped organise the Camp Quality visit, which was the second of two respite weekends held in the Whitsundays this year.
“Our Rotary members helped out with the barbecue on Friday night and they were also busy during the week baking some home-cooked goodies foe everyone to enjoy,” he said.
“These families are doing it pretty tough and it’s great to look after families that are less fortunate than ours.”
Friday night’s barbecue was a great way to kick off the weekend with the kids having a fun time at BIG4, enjoying their pool and water slides.
The camp ran all weekend with all the families getting out and enjoying all the Whitsundays has to offer.
Mr Cawthorne said Rotary had held the weekends for the last four years and thanked BIG4 for their continued support.
