Quinns Rocks residents Nat and Chris Sangalli travelled with Peter Hodge and Becki Yu through the outback from Kalbarri to Dampier for a week.

‘It was our first year and we will definitely be back again,’ Mrs Sangalli said.

‘It was a challenging, fun-filled adventure with an awesome group of people who made us feel very welcome. Dressed in our Wizard of Oz costumes, we joined Batman, pirates, Santa’s helpers, Where’s Wally, witches and many more.

‘Our highlight had to be the school visits, watching the Camp Quality puppets in action, educating the children about the challenges faced by children with cancer.’

The mother-of-three said most donations came from the Quinns area, and several businesses sponsored them, helping them reach a total of $6697.45.

The event raised about $300,000 altogether, which organisers said would enable Camp Quality to help about 75 families for a full year.
