Through his work with Camp Quality, a camp for kids living with cancer, Matt made a number of visits to Wellington Children’s Hospital. He soon realised that weekends involved long stretches of boredom for children who remained admitted. For those from out of town or whose family couldn’t be with them throughout the day, this was particularly challenging.
In 2002 Matt, along with a great bunch of like minded volunteers, set out to change this by providing a visiting service on the weekends. Many years later, that services is still running strong and boosting the spirits of kids.
