Werris Creek BRANCH

Hunter New England Region

Assisting our community, locally…

ABOUT US

Can Assist Werris Creek was formed in 2009. Our branch covers the Liverpool Plains including Quirindi and surrounding areas of the northern inland. We have a committed group who raise funds by holding garage sales and spend countless hours catering at horse events. All money raised supports people with cancer in our area.

Areas Serviced: Ardglen, Blackville, Bundella, Caroona, Colly Blue, Coomoo Coomoo, Currabubula, Little Jacks Creek, Parraweena, Quirindi, Spring Ridge, Wallabadah, Warrah, Warrah Creek, Werris Creek, Willow Tree, Windy, Yannergee

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. Can Assist expresses our thanks.

5 year old Tommy Gill from Glen Innes woke up very pale in colour and with notable bruising.

After a visit to the doctor, he was flown to John Hunter Hospital in Newcastle that afternoon and diagnosed with Leukemia.

This was the beginning of a long treatment journey.

Distance should be no barrier to treatment. Can Assist supports rural and regional cancer patients across NSW access treatment.

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.
