Setting up camp for a cause

SPEND the last weekend of daylight saving camping for a cause at the Taekidokai Camp Out or Camp Quality at Jamberoo Public School.

The event on Saturday, April 5, is part of fund-raising efforts by Taekidokai Albion Park to mark the tenth anniversary of the i98 Camp Quality Convoy.

The Albion Park dojo has raised about $1500 so far for Camp Quality and will continue with fund-raising until the Convoy on November 16.

Taekidokai's Jenny Day said in a small way her family had experienced what families with children suffering cancer deal with. That experience had provided the inspiration for this year's fund-raising efforts.

"We spent some time in the leukaemia ward with my son," Ms Day said.

"He didn't have to have treatment which is a blessing we are grateful for. Seeing the bone marrow transplants and lumber punctures showed the impact it has - and the impact on the rest of the family."

Saturday's family fun event will feature a jumping castle, Sumo Sarah (suit hire), live music, face painting, volleyball and touch football, taekidokai demonstrations, tug of war and a movie night.

Campers are requested to come from 2pm to set up tents. Tent sites are $40.

Non-campers are welcome for other activities from 4pm onwards with a $20 donation expected.

Bookings are required, phone 0421 56 6312.
