Dancing with Phill

Phill has raised $12,526.44 for the Cancer Council

Congratulations Phill!

Doing a Trade as a young man, then joining the Army Reserves to go onto being a Soldier , later working for many years as an underground coal miner, Phill knows hard work and is goals driven, his many accomplished skills from these backgrounds ensure survival in these tough environments and he has what it takes to get the job done. Today these skill sets have allowed him the highly technical role as Quarry Mining’s General Manager and throughout this role he has seen a lot of Australia and even the world.

Phillip lost his father to cancer when Phill was just a boy. Today, living in Medowie and using the fitness that he enjoys in his spare time, he often participates in fundraisers, particularly when cycling is involved.

Dancing really pushed Phill's boundaries and definitely took him out of his comfort zone, but raising money for the Cancer Council has been both a great honour and achievement.
