The Broken Hill and District Community Cancer Network (BHDCCN) has received a donation of $1,000 from Woolworths Broken Hill.
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 is to raise $20,000 annually which would enable it to help as many people as possible during an often difficult time.
Woolworths Broken Hill store manager said: “Woolworths Broken Hill was recently recognised by the company as the most improved store in the State as rated by our customers. We were awarded $1,000 to donate to a local charity, and we chose the Broken Hill and District Community Cancer Network.
“We hope this contribution helps them with the terrific work they do with local cancer sufferers and their families.”
The money will go toward supporting local patients having cancer treatment. The network helps pay certain bills for patients whose treatments or time away from work may be causing some financial difficulties.
“On behalf of the BHDCCN I would like to take this opportunity to thank Woolworths Broken Hill for their generous support,” said Ms Melissa Cumming, Secretary of the Network.
