Whitsunday Times - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

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.
