Pancake day at hospital to help fundraise for local Cancer Network

Delicious pancakes will be on sale in the hospital foyer from 11.30am-1pm on Tuesday 9th February to raise funds for the local Cancer Network and mark the launch of the Cancer Support Services Calendar of events (January-June 2016).

Money raised from the Pancake Day will go towards funding the Broken Hill and District Community Cancer Network. The network provides support to local cancer patients and was established in May 2014 in a joint venture with Far West LHD and NSW Cancer Council.

The Cancer Support Services Calendar of Events (for first six months of 2016) will also be launched on the day, which will be of interest to patients, carers, staff and community members.

“A selection of sweet and savoury pancakes will be on sale for $4 and staff will be on hand to talk to the public and hospital staff about cancer services,” said Mr Garry Halliday, Psycho-Oncology Counsellor, Far West LHD.

“The Cancer Support Services Calendar of Events will also be launched and we are sure this will be of interest to everyone concerned.”

The calendar outlines a range of patient and carer activities for wellbeing, relaxation and general support and information.

“The public are urged to come to the hospital and find out all about cancer services available to them in the Far West and enjoy a lovely pancake treat whilst supporting the Cancer Network,” said Mr Halliday.

Mr Halliday said some members of the Broken Hill Y’s Men’s Club are supporting the fundraiser by helping to cook the pancakes. “We are very appreciative of their assistance,” he said.
