2016 Dick Gillard Newcastle Winner Announced
It's National Volunteer Week, and the winner of the prestigious Dick Gillard Newcastle Volunteer of the Year Award has been announced! This year's winner is the amazing Carol Crompton, and here's what the Camp Quality Newcastle office had to say about her:
"We are so grateful to have Carol as a volunteer at Camp Quality. Her amazing contribution does not go unnoticed. Not only does Carol volunteer in the office fortnightly, she maintains the family holiday respite home in Salamander Bay weekly.
For many years, Carol has also been strongly committed to raising funds for our families. She has been a rider and part of the support crew for the 1000 K’s 4 Kids bike ride, and has recently taken on the role of Support Crew Manager, coordinating 25 support crew members daily- no small task!
Along with pushing herself to her physical and mental limits on the 1000 Ks 4 Kids bike ride, Carol has also trekked Kokoda and the Sandakan Track Death March in Borneo to raise funds for Camp Quality.
It doesn’t end there as Carol is also a valuable member of our companion team for camps, and over many years has helped brighten the lives of our children at our aged camps.
Camp Quality is much richer from having ‘Mama C’ as one of our volunteers, mentors and friends. We’re proud to call her our 2016 Illawarra Dick Gillard Volunteer of the Year."
