Kids' helpers wanted just for fun

A CHILDREN’S cancer charity is looking for volunteers on the Tweed to prove laughter really is the best medicine.

Camp Quality seeks to create an optimistic community for children living with cancer and their families.

The charity allows local families to meet other people going through the same experience.

Camp Quality area manager Mike Symonds said Camp Quality Activity Group volunteers were needed in the Tweed Valley area.

“Camp Quality Activity Groups are established in most major centres throughout Northern New South Wales to enable a greater local community support for children living with cancer and their families,” Mr Symonds said.

Activity groups provide two local fun activities for families each year.

“They are instrumental in ensuring that local families receive support through attending fun family days and assisting with fundraiser events that we run,” Mr Symonds said.

Volunteers are also needed to provide a “local face” for Camp Quality, lend a hand to families and promote fundraising.

An information session will be held on February 24 at 6.30 in Tweed Heads Bowling Club.
