Our work would not be possible without the help of our volunteers who bring their enthusiasm and commitment to a range of roles, from fundraising to transporting cancer patients to treatment facilities.
Each month we acknowledge the volunteers who demonstrate our core values of innovation, responsibility, courage, and collaboration.
November 2020 volunteer recognitions
|Bob Hongo||Courage, Responsibility & Collaboration|
|Strong commitment to the wellbeing of our T2T patients in the Wagga region – taking responsibility to ensure the safety of patients and collaborating with health providers to ensure patient was cared for.|

The Bathurst community were able to donate to the Bathurst Relay Appeal online or text in. They were able to grab tickets in an online raffle, learn about how the money helps and hear local stories on the Bathurst Relay Facebook page on Saturday 21 November.
The Facebook page featured performances by local vocalist and performer, George Sargent, interviews with cancer survivors, carers and volunteers demonstrating the impact of the funds raised and the mission of Cancer Council, and heartfelt words of encouragement from well recognised locals, appealing to the community to please donate if they can. 2MCE supported the appeal by scheduling hourly grabs and hosting interviews throughout the day.
Thank you to Dr Donald Alexander and Jane Talbot, supported by young leaders Abby Dinger and George Sargent, for your commitment to the cause during a challenging time.
