Country Hope calls for more carers to support kids with cancer

Country Hope is looking for more male carers like Nathan Wimhurst

Country Hope allows them to do that through its annual Time Out for Life camp.

Volunteers like Wodonga’s Nathan Wimhurst are there for the kids with cancer and their siblings, to take their minds off illness and instead focus on having fun.
