Their wonderful volunteer and cancer survivor Caroline is taking up the Dry July challenge again this year. “I’ll be having a glass of bubbly on the 30th of June to commiserate and another on the 1st of August to celebrate!” Caroline said.
Caroline began volunteering at RPA in 2007 after having treatment there for breast cancer. She now volunteers at both Lifehouse and RPA; “I feel like I’ve had a lot of help, I’d like to put a lot back in. That’s why I volunteer, and why I’m doing Dry July.”
Caroline met her partner John, also a cancer survivor and fellow volunteer at both Lifehouse and RPA Cancer Support Centre, at an RPA volunteers’ drinks event. John drives the Lifehouse patient transport car, which was purchased with funds raised through previous Dry July campaigns.
After Caroline’s champagne-free month, she and John will be celebrating by flying to Cairns for a holiday on 1 August.
