This July, our very own Malcolm Draycott will say a polite ‘no thanks’ to all offers of a drink for 31 days, to raise money for Cancer Council Queensland.

Malcolm has decided to kiss the booze goodbye for this very worthy cause, not least because the diseases associated with asbestos exposure will fall within the research for cancer treatments, and the sufferers will benefit from improved care facilities.

Cancer Council Queensland (CCQ) provides support for the entire cancer journey – from research and prevention, advice on diagnosis, assistance during treatment, support post-treatment and guidance with survivorship. All support given is free of charge to cancer patients and their families. Funds from Dry July will go towards running costs and improved services provided at CCQ’s six accommodation lodges and hospital-based resources throughout the state.

Malcolm will be keeping us up to date on his journey; please head to his page at to donate & support him.
