A fundraising event has been organised this month for local 7-year-old boy Cameron Mills, who has been diagnosed with Level 3 Autism, which is classified as Severe Autism, and is non-verbal. The family friendly event, Helping Cameron, will take place on Sunday the 17th November at the Pioneer Tavern in South Penrith, with funds assisting his care.
“The fundraiser is for Cameron and to help him get as much assistance as possible that we can’t afford or that the NDIS aren’t able to cover. We would also like to help Cameron’s school as well. The school is full of very sweet, loving and caring people that we would like to help out and donate to them” said Cherie Mills, Cameron’s mother.
“I decided to do this because I wanted to do something to help my son and I thought that people may be able to have some fun too. The NDIS can’t cover everything, so I just felt like I had to do it” she added.
The Helping Cameron event promises to be a great day out for the whole family. Taking place at the Pioneer Tavern from 1:00pm, there will be face painting for kids big and small, games, $10 play books and boppers and raffles with some fantastic prizes on offer. Drag queen bingo, with April Fools, is sure to be a hit on the day too.
It is hoped that the goal of $9,000 is reached for the fundraising event. You can also get behind and support Cameron by donating to a GoFundMe page that has been set up for him.
