Shoalhaven BRANCH

Assisting our community, locally…

ABOUT US

Can Assist Shoalhaven was formed in 2010 and raises funds to provide financial assistance to people in our local community who are undergoing cancer treatment.

The Shoalhaven branch consists of a small group of people who enjoy fundraising together and are fortunate enough to be supported in their fundraising efforts by a number of local individuals and community groups.

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 our supporters for their contribution.

In 2019 we lost our long term member and good friend Bob Kells. It is because of Bob’s warm and engaging personality that many of us joined the committee. Over the years he was a keen organiser of fundraising events and in his spare time made and sold unique woodwork items, the proceeds of which he donated to Can Assist. Despite declining health, his enthusiasm never waned. Vale Bob.

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.
