2017 Dick Gillard SYD 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 SYD Volunteer of the Year

The winner of our prestigious Dick Gillard SYD Volunteer of the Year Award is the phenomenal Lisa Morgan!

"Lisa Morgan has been a volunteer with Camp Quality for over 2 years. Lisa’s beautiful nature and kind soul always encourages the kids to step out of their comfort zones and give all activities a go. Lisa is a great role model to other companions whilst on camp and provides support to anyone when needed. Lisa is always one to dress up and add some of her creative flair to all our programs. She inspires and encourages kids to be themselves and be proud and passionate about who they are.

Lisa is so very generous with making herself available to volunteer for Camp Quality. Even when she’s had her own personal arrangements locked in, she’s always approachable and happy to move things around to help us out before anything else. We cannot thank her enough for her selflessness.”the Camp Quality SYD 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.
