Camp Quality Fund Raising For Children With Cancer

My name is Brian Hammond, I am the National Chairman of Camp Quality New Zealand Inc. We are devoted to running camps throughout the country, for children suffering from cancer. Last year our old mate the Mad Butcher, sold DVD’s of The Footy Show to provide much needed funds for our totally voluntary organisation. He successfully raised over $28,000 which was distributed nationwide.

This year he has again come to our aid by selling two hilarious DVD’s through his stores. With Father’s Day approaching these will make great gifts. “The Best of the Footy Show 2003” provides highlights from this outstanding football programme. Combine this with “All of Me” by funny man Reg Reagan and you have a perfect package. These are both Best Sellers in Australia and the Mad Butcher has the New Zealand rights. They are available through all of his stores or by phoning (09) 267 4185 ext 0 to order.

I seek your support in promoting this fund raiser in any way you can. All profits go directly to Camp Quality in the region where the DVD’s are sold. Support your camps in Auckland/Northland; Waikato/Bay of Plenty; Wellington and Central Regions; Christchurch and the lower South Island. All money goes to benefit kids with cancer.
