Clunker to go for cancer cash

AFTER losing a parent each to cancer, colleagues Duncan Odgers and Craig Matthews have been dedicated to help those in need.

The two strong supporters of the children's family cancer charity Camp Quality were given an unused vehicle from the Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre to restore for the cause.

With colleague Kyle Wakefield they will spend the next nine months making the vehicle roadworthy at their own expense to enter into the Camp Quality "esCarpade".

The event is a seven-day outback motoring adventure travelling 300 kilometres to 350 kilometres a day. It is Camp Quality's biggest annual national fund-raiser.

The aim is not only to raise money for every child living with cancer in Australia but also to create an inspiring event that raises awareness in regional communities and draws back a loyal following year after year.

Mr Matthews said the trio had witnessed some of the great work Camp Quality has done in the community and were looking forward to supporting the cause and bringing joy to sick children.

"Both Duncan and I have lost parents to cancer and can't imagine what it would be like to have a child affected by cancer or worse," he said.

"We really admire the work Camp Quality does and wanted to support this valuable charity.

"We feel this would be a great way to give back."

Mr Matthews said there was still a lot of work to do on the car but the team was looking forward to representing Liverpool.
