Parkes BRANCH

Western NSW Region

Assisting our community, locally…

ABOUT US

Can Assist Parkes was formed in 1986. We raise funds to provide financial assistance for people in the Parkes Shire with travel, accommodation, medication and other medical expenses.

We run a second hand market place selling everything from glassware and books through to larger furniture. Donations are always welcome and there is certainly a good bargain to be found for any buyer.  Come and visit us at 33 Court Street Parkes, open Tuesday to Friday, 9 -1, Saturday 9 – 12.30. For larger furniture pieces please come to Parkes Showground 9 to 12.00.

Areas Serviced: Alectown, Bogan Gate, Bruie Plains, Cooks Myalls, Goonumbla, Gunningbland, Mandagery, Nelungaloo, Parkes, Tichborne, Tottenham, Trewilga, Trundle, Tullamore

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.

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.
