HELPING HANDS: Dianne Hanney and Pam Marshall have been making bags filled with quilts and toys for kids who will be going to camp quality.

FOR the past three months, the ladies at Mission Possible have been busily preparing special care packages for sick children.

More than 60 care packages containing a homemade quilt, books, games, toiletries and more will this week be delivered to Camp Quality where they will then be handed out to sick children suffering from cancer.

Mission Possible volunteer Gail Harrower said the women at the Logan Central community group loved helping Camp Quality.

"For 10 years, we have been making care bags for the children to take away with them to camp," she said.

"This is community helping community, and these kids need all the help they can get.

"We just love helping these kids, and knowing they love the care packages, brings us back each week."

Each day, the women work on the quilts, which have been specially designed for each child.

"We are given a list of the children who are attending, so all the quilts are age and gender appropriate," Mrs Harrower said.

"Some of the quilts are multi-coloured, some have stars and others have patterns like animals."

Program co-ordinator for Camp Quality Kellyanne Macarone said she was appreciative of Mission Possible's help each year.

"It is with the generous support of groups like Mission Possible that Camp Quality is able to deliver our program," she said.

"We are really grateful of their ongoing support.

"They all have big hearts."

Miss Macarone said the bags would be a surprise for the children.

"We have an activity at camp called the camp fairy," she said.

"We will deliver the bags at night while they are sleeping so when they wake up in the morning they will have a lovely surprise."
