Mackay and Whitsunday Life
A staggering $12,507 has been raised for Whitsunday Housing Company’s (WHCL) Tiny Homes Project, through the BIG4 Adventure Whitsunday Resort’s annual Camp and sCare charity event.
Seeing over 1,000 children and their families visit the event, and take part in the free entertainment, including park water slides, animal feeding and Halloween themed movies.
WHCL’s Tiny Homes Project Fundraising Coordinator, Sandy Clark, expressed her gratitude to the community for their support.
“Thank you to everyone who has supported the Tiny Homes Project and construction of four tiny homes for homeless women in the Whitsundays through BIG4 Adventure Whitsunday Resort’s Camp and sCare charity event,” she said.
“Over $12,000 is such a generous donation, which comes at a very important time for us, having nearly reached our overall $700,000 target, ultimately bringing us closer to commencing our build and helping vulnerable women in our local community.”
Tanya Cran, Big4 Adventure Whitsunday Resort’s Marketing Manager is proud of the monies raised.
“We always have great support, not only from the local residents and visitors who attend this event, but from our local friends and partners,” Tanya said.
“We must also make a special mention and pass on a big thanks to Woolworths Cannonvale who donated the sausages and bread, BIG W Cannonvale for 1,000 glow sticks and to local operators and businesses, including Ocean Rafting, Cruise Whitsundays, Fishi Fresh Island Seafood and Intuitive Massage, who all supplied raffle prizes.”
