Charity golf day strikes success

CAMP Quality’s amazing work improving the lives of children battling cancer received a shot in the arm following the success of the Nestle Charity Golf Day at the weekend.

At the Gympie Pines Golf Course on Saturday, 41 teams of eager golfers hit the greens to raise vital funds for the valuable charity.

Nestle spokesperson Shelley Kropp was delighted with the day’s outcome.

“We’re looking at over $12,000 at present for this year and with 41 teams, the course was a sell-out!” she said.

The money raised is on par with last year’s effort of $12,500.

Camp Quality can still benefit from the event if The Gympie Times readers dig deep and make a donation directly to the charity.

Laughter is often the best medicine for children confronting cancer and Camp Quality has long been a shining light for families.
