When much of the world has been in hiatus, the Cowra Cancer Action groups continues to work hard for the Cowra community.

So far in 2020 the group has contributed $38,810 to the Cowra Hospital Chemotherapy Ward.

The funds have purchased special chairs for the chemo ward, a SOZO Lymphedema Machine and also contributed to the purchases of Laparoscopes for the Hospital theatre.

President of the Cowra Cancer Action Group, Graham Apthorpe says that each of these items are crucial to the ward.

"This is quite an achievement and one that directly benefits members of our local community," he said.

Although the group was saddened to have to cancel their highly anticipated Christmas Luncheon, they continue to think of new and exciting ways to fundraise.
