2014 Sticky Rice Kids Christmas Party

The Eddietorial February 2019

Dear Readers

2019 has started and in true Eddie Rice tradition we did it in style! Four back-to-back Edmund Rice Mega Camps were run from 4–24 January, with over 60 campers at each camp.

Once again an army of volunteer leaders signed up and delivered amazing camps for almost 100 at risk kids. Our coordinators and coaches prepared for weeks in advance and logistics worked around the clock to secure over 40 ancillary volunteers who made the hundreds of meals for the campers and drove the buses thousands of kilometres back and forth from our flagship camp site Tuppin House in Guilderton.

To run one Mega Camp is an achievement but to deliver four in a row is quite remarkable. I must once again take my hat off to the leaders and ancillary volunteers who make this possible. A big thank you also to my small team here in the office who play an invaluable part in bringing the leaders and kids together and securing safe transport and accommodation for us all.

This Eddie-torial is appropriately dedicated to the January camps 2019 Download here.
