BH Miners Baseball support local cancer patients

The BH Miners Baseball Club has once more supported local cancer patients following a successful Masters Baseball Tournament held here over the Queen’s Birthday Weekend.

The club has given $1,336.00 to the Broken Hill and District Community Cancer Network (BH&DCCN) from money raised through tournament nomination fees and a donation from the Democratic Club. The Cancer Network supports and provides assistance to financially disadvantaged patients within the Far West who are receiving cancer treatment.

BH Miners Baseball Vice President, David Stellini, said the club donated $500 to the Cancer Network last year and promised a larger donation this year.

“We have done that and it’s about keeping the money raised local and the Cancer Network is a worthy recipient,” said Mr Stellini.

The inaugural BH and District Community Cancer Network Cup was also launched at the carnival and the home team, BH Miners, claimed top honours as the overall winner from teams visiting from Mount Gambier and Adelaide.

Sandra Turley, Treasurer, BH and District Community Cancer Network, thanked the club and all those involved for the generous donation.

“We greatly appreciate all the effort put into raising the money, which will go towards helping local cancer patients experiencing financial difficulty.”

Since the instigation of the BH&DCCN in 2014, it has provided $8,808.00 in financial assistance to patients.
