Canterbury Kings head to Camp Quality

The Canterbury Kings went to Camp Quality recently for their yearly visit! Camp Quality Campers are children, 5 to 16 years of age, who have been diagnosed with cancer.

Their programmes provide a stress-free and caring environment for the children where fun and friendship are combined with achievable challenges – allowing the children to “just be kids”. They get a sense of normality and independence and focus on the positive aspects of their lives.

Camp Quality passionately believes in the power of fun to help children and their families overcome the challenges that living with cancer can bring. Each year Camp Quality programmes cater for around 300 children at various locations around the country.

Through Camp Quality, families get a much-needed break and the opportunity to spend time with other siblings while their child is at camp. They do so with the assurance that Camp Quality has the finest programmes, staff, Companions, medical care and safety procedures in place.

Here are Peter Fulton’s (Kings coach) thoughts on the Camp and the importance of Canterbury Crickets Involvement:

“We have been going there for the afternoon for about 7-8 years now. It’s always one of the highlights of the summer and also a great opportunity for our guys to give something back to kids who have been going through a tough time with cancer.

Sometimes as professional cricketers, I think we fall into the trap of thinking cricket is the be-all and end of all. Going to camp quality always provides the players with a great perspective that it’s only a game and there are other people going through a lot worse things than making a duck or not taking any wickets”
