Coleambally BRANCH

Murrumbidgee Region

Assisting our community, locally…


Can Assist Coleambally was formed in 1992 and raises funds to provide financial assistance to people in our local community who are undergoing cancer treatment.

A dedicated group of members who offer catering services for wakes, have open garden days, fashion parades and morning teas with guest speakers as just some of the ways we raise funds to support locals financially when diagnosed with a cancer.

Financial Assistance

We understand that families struggle to cope with a reduced income as a result of a cancer diagnosis and that they face increased expenses from travel, accommodation and medical costs.

Lilier Lodge

Accommodation Assistance

Lilier Lodge was purpose built by Can Assist and the Cancer Council NSW, together with the support of local and regional communities.
