Tumbarumba BRANCH

Murrumbidgee Region

Assisting our community, locally…


Can Assist Tumbarumba was formed in 2004. We are a group of community minded people who raise money to assist locals who are undergoing treatment for cancer. We meet monthly and hold fundraising activities including street stalls and wood raffles. There are many money boxes located throughout the community and these are well supported by everyone.

Areas Serviced: Rosewood, Tooma, Tumbarumba

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.
