Helping out some sick kids

THE Whitsundays acted as a refuge for about 140 sick kids over the weekend with the North Queensland branch of Camp Quality hosted by Airlie Beach’s Club Crocodile.

Buses arrived from Cairns, Townsville and Mackay on Friday with the kids enjoying a buffet dinner at the resort on Friday night, a special performance by hypnotist Steve Spellmaster on Saturday morning, and a barbecue lunch arranged by the Rotary Club of Airlie Beach at the PCYC on Saturday before heading back on Sunday.

The group also enjoyed an afternoon at the lagoon.

Rotary Projects Director Neil Cawthorne said it was a pleasure to help out with such a worthy cause. “This is the sort of thing we like to get involved in,” he said.
