2016 Dick Gillard SA Winner Announced
It's National Volunteer Week, and the winner of the prestigious Dick Gillard SA Volunteer of the Year Award has been announced! This year's winner is the splendid Dr Phuong Tran, and here's what the Camp Quality SA office had to say about her:
"‘Dr Phuong’, as she is affectionately known, is one of Camp Quality’s true gems! As a member of the Volunteer Medical team we literally couldn’t do what we do without her. But we don’t just love her for her medical skills, we also love her for her leadership, sense of excellence and compassion for others.
Many of our children have some anxiety around hospitals, doctors and medical rooms, so a visit to the sick room can be frightening. But not when Dr Phuong’s around – there’s plenty of decorations, lollies, dress-ups and fun!
Dr Phuong lives our philosophy of “fun”, she spends hours creating incredibly elaborate costumes each year. Some of our favourites include a full body Lego costume for Lego Camp, Minion hat for all the kids on Minion Camp, and even a ‘slinky’ for the Toy Story themed Camp.
Dr Phuong, congratulations on being awarded the 2016 SA Dick Gillard Volunteer of the Year!"

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 essential programs and services. That's why we love and respect each and every one of them, and are committed to creating the greatest volunteering experiences possible.
