Junee BRANCH

Murrumbidgee Region

Assisting our community, locally…

ABOUT US

Can Assist Junee was formed in 1991. Our branch is dedicated to supporting anyone in the Junee Local Government area affected by cancer. We understand that following a cancer diagnosis, clients can struggle with the associated medical costs. We are able to do this through wonderful volunteers giving their time to raise much needed funds. Our aim is to maintain that all funds raised local remains local. Supporting Junee Can Assist is vital for our community, through donating money or volunteering time to make our fund-raising events a success.

Areas Serviced: Bethungra, Dirnaseer, Erin Vale, Eurongilly, Harefield, Junee, Junee Reefs, Marinna, Marrar, Nangus, Old Junee, Wantabadgerry, Wantiool, Yathella

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

Purpose built by Can Assist and the Cancer Council NSW, with the support of local and regional communities, it is managed by Can Assist. The 21 bed lodge is a warm and supportive home away from home.

Our Supporters

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

Can Assist Junee

🎉🤯 #BREAKING EPIC EFFORT: It’s official — we can reveal this year’s #Junee Poker Run & Blues Night raised the most amount of money it’s ever raised in the event’s 19 year history.

The #PokerRun committee surprised Can Assist Junee tonight, with a cheque for a record breaking $27,500, which will be used to support local residents with cancer and their families ❤️

This takes the total amount that the Poker Run has raised for the charity in the last three years to more than $72,000.

An outstanding achievement.

The last three rides have been the biggest in the event’s history, with more than 400 riders taking part each year.

A record 52 sponsors also came on board this year, up almost 20 from the year before.

Congratulations to the riders & event committee — once again, another tremendous effort by all involved.

To the sponsors, spectators & wider Junee Community — your support is equally important to ensuring each ride is a success, so THANK YOU! 🙏

Junee Community News is a proud sponsor of the Junee Poker Run & Blues Night - Offical Page.
