Another successful cake stall in Batemans Bay in May. They are there every second Thursday of each month and always highlight some of our wonderful talented home bakers.

The last 12 months have brought many challenges, none so more than the bushfires that the Eurobodalla shire faced last Christmas/New Year. Despite those and COVID the Local Can Assist team has continued to support those in their community dealing with cancer.
Emma, Anne and Majella really enjoyed attending the November meeting chaired by Bob and heard of their next fundraising plans – auctioning the Beautiful quilts donated by a local craft house. We wish the Eurobodalla Shire and all our communities affected by the devastating fires 12 months ago our best wishes as the one year anniversary passes.
Can Assist Eurobodalla has received funding from greenslips.com.au to help pay for cancer patients’ green slip insurance.
Through a partnership with www.greenslips.com.au, Can Assist Eurobodalla has funding to help ease that burden. The comparative CTP insurance site knows the cost of CTP car insurance. It recognises the benefits of keeping local cancer patients’ cars on the road, when they need them most.
“Our local cancer patients can’t get to treatment if they can’t travel. The main objective is getting people to treatment in Canberra, Nowra or Bega. This injection of funding means we can do more. With the green slip covered by greenslips.com.au we can give them other assistance. People are affected in different ways so we need to support them in different ways,” said Yvonne Scott, Can Assist Eurobodalla Patient Assistant Officer.
