I write for Weekend Notes and I take photographs, usually sunsets and sunrises. Occasionally I include my photos in my articles. I like to promote Geelong, and activities around Geelong.

Join Camp Quality on Sunday February 15th as hundreds of trucks and motor bikes drive through Geelong in a huge Convoy, heading to a FREE Family Fun Day at The Geelong Showgrounds.

This huge family fun day is a chance for Camp Quality to raise funds to help children with cancer, and their families. Camp Quality needs your help. There will be plenty of entertainment, provided by The Mik Maks, the Glitter Gand, and Imogen Brough. Mark Hyland from 93.9 BayFM will be broadcasting "The Catch Up" live from the Geelong Showgrounds.

There will be rides and food a plenty, hundreds of trucks and motorbikes, and it's all being put on to help children with cancer and their families. Come for the food and entertainment. Join the convoy ambassadors, Corey Enright (of the AFL Cats), his wife Renee and son Boh Enright, and lend a hand with the Camp Quality Convoy.

Geelong Camp Quality Convoy is holding a Gala Auction Night on Friday February 13th. Geelong businesses have come out in support of this great cause. Children living with cancer and their families are able to benefit from the generosity of these businesses.

Over $55,000 worth of prizes has been donated to the Geelong Camp Quality Convoy Group - with all the prizes being auctioned off on Friday February 13th. The auction and the convoy will be raising funds for Camp Quality.

Some of the items donated include a Port Douglas Holiday, an all expenses paid Kokoda Trek, accomodation vouchers, fuel vouchers and Geelong Football Club merchandise.

If you can help in any way on the night of the auction, or if you want to register your truck or motorbike in the Convoy you can download a registration form, or you can go to the 93.9 BayFM website for more information.

Camp Quality is a national charity that aims to create a better life for every Australian child living with cancer. Currently Camp Quality is providing support services to 35 families in the Geelong region - support at home, in hospital, at school and at camp.

This is the first time that a Camp Quality Convoy has been run in Geelong. This type of fund raiser has been run successfully for Camp Quality in other regional communities, including the Illawarra region in New South Wales and Townsville in Queensland.
