Wooli community supports Camp Quality for 10 years
In August, the Wooli community celebrated 10 years of supporting Camp Quality by having a Family Fun Day. In the last decade, the Wooli community has raised over $200,000, with $16,000 raised this year.
A range of local businesses supported Wooli’s Family Fun Days over the years. Stan from Wooli Deep Sea Tours has been taking families living with cancer out on boats for whale watching and fishing trips since the beginning and shared why he supports Camp Quality on the Daily Examiner.
“It’s so good to see a smile on their face. To have cancer as an adult, that’s life. But to have it when you’re young, it’s no good. It doesn’t give a kid an even break. The whole community pulls together to provide everything free of charge – from holiday houses, boat trips and food, to cooking and doing the dishes. There’s even an old lady who makes teddies. So many people put in little things and it all adds up to big things.” -Stan
The Pullan family shared their cancer journey and how the support from Camp Quality and the Wooli community impacted them on Byron Shire News.
The Wooli community have made a significant difference in creating the best quality of life for kids living with cancer and their families.
“The Wooli community has for ten years given an amazing gift to kids and their families living with cancer. When a child has cancer, life becomes about hospital wards and treatment. Families can’t imagine being able to go away and have a good time together. The Wooli community has made that possible. This Fun Day is about saying thank you and also sharing some of the fun their generosity has provided to families in the toughest of times,” - Bella Edwards, Camp Quality Northern NSW
Thank you, Wooli community, for your continued support over the last 10 years and we can’t wait for the next event!
