Spotlight on Justin Maskell - VIC Gillard award winner
With national Volunteer week behind us, we are thrilled to celebrate a beloved member of the Camp Quality family, VIC Gillard award winner Justin Maskell.
We asked Justin why he loves volunteering with Camp Quality. He says,
“Managing to get a sick child to smile is one of the most beautiful experiences in life. These children are at the start, beginning and end of their cancer journeys and I love that I get to help a small part of it be a happy memory.”
For the past 8 years, Justin has been a committed volunteer, attending 40 recreation programs. Justin has been instrumental in being a volunteer companion, a leadership committee member, a trainee Camp Leader, a fundraiser, an events leader, a public speaker, and has excelled in his role as Camp Leader.
After 8 years of working with Justin, the whole Camp Quality team is so thankful for Justin’s dedication. Kendra Overall, Victorian State Manager says,
“Justin is a kind, compassionate and gentle soul, who exemplifies the values of Camp Quality in all that he does. From being that smiling face when he enters our office, to being a leader for our kids, families and volunteers, to supporting us at our community and special events – there is nothing that is too small or big for Justin to jump into. He always displays an optimistic outlook and helps everyone around him to celebrate life. He is a valuable member of the Victorian team, and one deserving of accolades, even if he will take it on board quite humbly.”
From the whole Camp Quality family, a big THANKYOU Justin for giving kids facing cancer the chance to be kids again.
