2017 Dick Gillard NT 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 NT Volunteer of the Year

The winner of our prestigious Dick Gillard NT Volunteer of the Year Award is the phenomenal Shane McCorkell!

"Shane McCorkell has been a volunteer with Camp Quality for 2.5 years. Shane is the one of the most actively involved volunteers in the Territory, and he is a real asset to Camp Quality – we would be lost without him.

Shane likes to be a big part of creating a prosperous event for Camp Quality – from dressing up as our mascot Giggle, to putting on a BBQ to fundraise, to providing leadership to new volunteers, Shane is always the first to put his hand up to help out at an event to give back"the Camp Quality NT 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.
