Trustees

"We are a board of directors completely committed to the vision and aim's of Camp Quality. We are serious about fun and want children with a potentially life limiting illness to realise their potential. This is done through gaining positive childhood experiences, and that is what we are committed to offering today, just as we did many years ago."

Russell Casey

Russell first became involved with Camp Quality as a camper, after being diagnosed with Cancer at the age of twelve. He attended several holidays, and by the age of seventeen, became a Companion. Russell has been to some thirteen camps, two of them as co-director. He has enjoyed every moment with Camp Quality, and would love to continue being involved with the Charity for many years to come.

He believes that through his own illness he has been able to offer children, who are going through similar experiences, the opportunity to take part in many life-lasting experiences the children will always remember.

His dedication and commitment has made a great contribution to his role on the Executive Committee. Something, he wishes to continue in whatever capacity it may be.

Jean Casey

Jean has spent many years working in an accounts office, and well used to dealing with money. However, she first came across Camp Quality when her 13-year old son, who had a brain tumour removed one year earlier, was offered a place on a holiday.

She became a companion on several camps, then a Camp Director assuming overall responsibility for an individual camp. Since then, Jean has joined the Board of Trustees taking responsibility for finance.

Jean is very keen for every child with a cancer-related illness to have the chance to go on a holiday, and make long-lasting friendships in the process.

Delyth Casey

Delyth joined Camp Quality UK in 2006 as a volunteer, since then she has nursed, volunteers, directed and now helps run the charity.

She believes that laughter is the best medicine and incourages young people to get involved in all activities that are done during camp.

You can often find her being a big kid whether it be instigating a water fight to sitting quietly relfecting with a camper. Her main focus is the campers and making sure they have a holiday full of fun. Delyth believes that through Camp Quality UK the young people gain the confidence to be able to go forward and deal with whatever life throws at them with a new vigor.

Camp Quality UK plays a big part in her life, and wants the charity to continue to strive and move forward to enable more young people to access this service and take part in a such worthwhile holiday.
