Camp Qual­ity kids en­joy weekend in Whit­sun­days

Whitsunday Times - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

CHIL­DREN suf­fer­ing from cancer and their fam­i­lies en­joyed a beau­ti­ful weekend in the Whit­sun­days with Camp Qual­ity, stay­ing at BIG4 Ad­ven­ture Re­sort and en­joy­ing many ac­tiv­i­ties in the re­gion.

The Ro­tary Club of Air­lie Beach were keen to lend a help­ing hand by host­ing a de­li­cious bar­beque din­ner on Satur­day night for the 70 vis­i­tors from Mackay, Cairns and Mount Isa.

Ro­tary club mem­ber Neil Cawthorne helped or­gan­ise the Camp Qual­ity visit, which was the first of two an­nual respite week­ends held in the Whit­sun­days this year.

His wife Narelle Cawthorne also made a beau­ti­ful birth­day cake as some of the chil­dren were cel­e­brat­ing their birth­days over the weekend.

Ro­tary pub­lic re­la­tions of­fi­cer Denise Norder said the evening was a great suc­cess.

“It’s very re­ward­ing to be able to help Camp Qual­ity chil­dren and their fam­i­lies who are suf­fer­ing from can- cer,” she said.

Satur­day night’s bar­beque was a great way to see out the weekend, with the kids spend­ing the day en­joy­ing the pool and wa­ter­slides at BIG4.

The camp ran all weekend with many fam­i­lies mak­ing the most of the warm weather to ex­pe­ri­ence ev­ery­thing the Whit­sun­days has to of­fer.

The Ro­tary Club of Air­lie Beach holds the Camp Qual­ity bar­beque din­ner as a re­sult of funds raised through the Ro­tary Phone Guide.
