Our volunteers do everything from running camps, helping on camps, cooking for hungry campers, stuffing envelopes, doing paperwork, writing cards, filing, serving at school breakfast clubs, and a thousand other jobs that keep children and young people connected, and our supporters updated.

Today is International Volunteers Day, so we wanted to highlight one of our long-serving volunteers who runs Far North Queensland Splashout Camp in Cairns.  Her name is Kristin Hohoi and she’s amazing. (more…)

With only a few weeks left until the first SU QLD Games, it’s time to get excited!

In just over two years, your support for SU QLD’s Sports Ministry has helped unite communities and bring families and work colleagues together, while encouraging young and old alike to engage in competitive sports in a God-honouring way.

Until now, this has been achieved through the half-day Community Cup events, all of which have been completely booked out.  BUT this year, the team are stepping things up with the first SU QLD Games, which will kick off on 30 June at Nudgee College.
