The Broken Hill and District Community Cancer Network (BHDCCN) has surpassed its annual fundraising goal thanks to a fantastic effort by the North Football Club and its supporters.
The Cancer Network was established in 2014 to provide financial assistance for patients with a diagnosis of cancer and who are currently receiving treatment. The Network’s aim was to raise $20,000 annually which would enable it to help as many people as possible during an often difficult time.
“Through the generosity of the people of Broken Hill, we have surpassed our annual fundraising goal,” said Ms Sandra Turley, Cancer Network spokesperson.
In August 2014 the North Football Club rallied around to support one of their team members who was receiving treatment. A head shave fundraiser by the North Football Club managed to raise over $15,000 and this money was donated to the Network.
“On behalf of the BHDCCN I would like to take this opportunity to thank the generous people of Broken Hill for their continued support,” said Ms Turley.
“We would like to recognise the club and its members by presenting a Certificate of Appreciation on behalf of the BHDCCN.”
Mr Ben Victory accepted the certificate on behalf of the Club and its supporters.
