2017 Dick Gillard NCLE winner announced

Every year during National Volunteer Week, Camp Quality honours the incredible efforts and achievements of our Volunteer Family. Without our volunteers, many of our important programs and services simply would not run.

The Dick Gillard Awards recognise excellence in volunteering, and are hard won. The winners display commitment to helping children impacted by cancer, and their families.

2017 Dick Gillard NCLE Volunteer of the Year

The winner of our prestigious Dick Gillard NCLE Volunteer of the Year Award is the phenomenal Kylie Tarasenko!

"Kylie Tarasenko has been a volunteer with Camp Quality for over 11 years. Kylie is an all-round support to the Newcastle office. Kylie’s drive and passion is infectious, yet she is such a quiet achiever. Her focus is for our children and their families, but she is always there for her fellow volunteers to offer support, training and encouragement.

Kylie’s financial support over the years from Giggle Ball, to Mariners bucket rattling to collecting cheques for us and speaking on our behalf is beyond priceless. Kylie is a well valued volunteer and we are very lucky to have her.”the Camp Quality NCLE team

Volunteering with Camp Quality is an experience like no other. Volunteers are the heart of Camp Quality, and without their tremendous support, we wouldn't be able to run our innovative programs and services. That's why we love and respect every one of them, and are committed to creating the greatest volunteering experiences possible.

Currently, we have more boy campers (over 50%), than male companions (less than 30%). That means Camp Quality needs more male volunteers, otherwise boys growing up with cancer will start missing out on our important camps. Help us even the playing field.

If you are a male over 18 years old, it’s time to #BroUp - express your interest to be a camp companion today.
