Forbes BRANCH

Western NSW Region

Assisting our community, locally…

ABOUT US

Can Assist Forbes was the first country branch established in 1956. Our branch raises funds to provide financial assistance to people in our community who are undergoing cancer treatment.

We are very well supported by members, volunteers and the community of Forbes. We believe the community of Forbes are so supportive because they know all the money raised and donated is used to assist Forbes and district cancer patients.

Areas Serviced: Bandon, Bedgerebong, Bundaburrah, Calarie, Carrawabbity, Corinella, Cumbijowa, Eugowra, Fairholme, Forbes, Garema, Grawlin, Gunning Gap, Jemalong, Mulyandry, Ooma, Warroo, Weelong, Wirrinya, Yarragong

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.

Our Supporters

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

If Karen and her husband were living in any other state or territory in the country they would have received a higher rebate – in fact, up to $72 a night higher.

On average, a resident of country NSW will receive $42.32c less a night than the rest of the country. What a disgrace!

Thank you Dr Joe McGirr MP and Helen Dalton MP for helping to bring this injustice to light.
