At Dreams2Live4, we count ourselves incredibly lucky to have such talented, passionate people working with us to make Dreams come true. Camilla Durgan is one such individual who has made an enormous contribution to Dreams2Live4.
Her time, dedication, organisation, knowledge and all-round talent has been instrumental in one of our latest projects: Bowl4Dreams. Without her- this simply would not have been possible.
Why did you choose to donate your time to D2L4?
I had just moved to Australia from the UK, and wanted to find something to do which was fulfilling and I knew would make a difference rather than just going to the beach and eating avocado toast! A family friend of mine is an old friend of Lou’s and told me about D2L4. As soon as I heard about the organisation and the brilliant work they were doing I knew that I wanted to offer my help in any way possible, so I e-mailed Lou and the rest is history! I have taken on an event co-ordinator role organising a new and exciting initiative – Bowl4Dreams.
What do you love about D2L4, what we do and our story?
I love that Dreams2Live4 gives an opportunity for dreamers to have a truly once in a life time experience – and a chance to have time out from their day to day lives and just enjoy themselves with their closest family and friends in a way that is personal to each dreamer.
What have you learned from the process?
The biggest thing I have learnt is that even the smallest contribution can count. Who would have thought that by giving one day a week’s time we could have created this amazing event which will be open for anyone to participate in and run their own fundraising day. I am sure that the Bowl4Dreams weekend will be the upmost success, and even though I won’t be able to be there I will be cheering on from the UK.
What would you say to others thinking of doing the same?
Don’t hesitate and do it!! The knowledge that you are helping to contribute to this amazing organisation is so fulfilling and I feel so lucky and privileged to have met and worked with the Dreams2Live4 team. The charity is growing and expanding so quickly that any help which anybody can offer will be so appreciated and make such an incredible difference.
What do you hope the Bowl4Dreams event will grow to in the future?
The biggest annual bowls event in Australia! – With the interest and traction that we have been getting just in the first year, I am sure that this is just the beginning and in future years Bowl4Dreams events will be run by Dreams2Live4 Supporters in every state and almost every region across Australia!
If you would like to be involved with Dreams2Live4 in any way, shape or form, please don’t hesitate to email firstname.lastname@example.org. Every contribution- big or small counts!
