Oberon BRANCH

Western NSW Region

Assisting our community, locally…

ABOUT US

Can Assist Oberon was formed in 2009. Our branch has been going strong for over 10 years and thanks to our generous community continues to do so. We have a small committee but we are all dedicated to help people in need when diagnosed with cancer.

Areas Serviced: Black Springs, Burraga, Chatham Valley, Duckmaloi, Edith, Gingkin, Gurnang, Hazelgrove, Jaunter, Jenolan Caves, Kanangra, Mayfield, Mount David, Mount Olive, Mount Werong, Mozart, O’Connell, Oberon, Porters Retreat, Shooters Hill, Tarana, The Meadows, Yerranderie

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 supporters both from within the community and further afield. We thank them for their contribution.

Our local football team, Oberon Tigers, every year do a major fundraising day for Can Assist. Each year they seem to raise more money than the year before. This is also with the generous donations from our local businesses.

Upcoming Events

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.
