Cootamundra BRANCH

Murrumbidgee Region

Assisting our community, locally…


Can Assist Cootamundra was formed in 1984. We have been described as the “silent soldiers of the town”, with many different strengths. We work harmoniously to raise funds to assist cancer patients in our shire. We are supported with donations from the most generous community which recognises the value of our work.

Areas Serviced: Bethungra, Cootamundra, Muttama, Stockinbingal, Wallendbeen

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.

Lilier Lodge provides accommodation for people undergoing cancer treatment at nearby facilities including the Riverina Cancer Care Centre, Wagga Wagga Base Hospital and Calvary Hospital.

Our Supporters

Our Branch would not exist without our members, volunteers and community supporters. We thank them for their contribution.
