A GROUP called Wall Warriors is on a two-year mission to raise money for Camp Quality.

Butler resident Claire Neill said the group arose from her desire to tick items off her bucket list, culminating in a trip to the Great Wall of China in September 2016.

“I have a bucket list item that I want to tick off, but I don’t want to do it alone – I would like to do it with people and for a cause,” she said.

“Wall Warriors are a group of everyday people who will work together to achieve a common goal: to break down the barriers that keep anyone from living life to the full.”

Mrs Neill said they hoped to raise $10,000 for Camp Quality, which supports children living with cancer, and would hold a variety of fundraisers.

She said anyone was welcome to join the group in its fundraising efforts,

“We will be planning events so we can all come together to raise funds and have a ball in the process,” she said.

“This will give you an opportunity to meet others and spread the gift of laughter.

“In 2016, each registered wall warrior will cross the oceans to complete the final mission – to conquer the Great Wall of China.

“Each warrior will pledge their commitment to fundraise $2000 (and) be required to personally cover the cost of their own mission trip to China.”

Author Gladys Boutros donated 100 copies of her first book Bubba and the Sweet Pea for Wall Warriors to sell as a fundraiser.

The children’s book is about a bird, Bubba, who starts losing his feathers and follows his quest to find them, highlighting his struggles and fears as he learns about true beauty.

The group will hold a sausage sizzle fundraiser at Bunnings, Clarkson, on April 6.
