Cowra and District Cancer Action Group Inc recently presented a cheque for $1,650 to Cowra Hospital for two sets of Lymphedema sleeves.

These are to be used by cancer patients in their treatment.

In this calendar year, the Cancer Action Group has approved payments to Cowra Hospital of $59,000 for a range of equipment, training and items for the ongoing treatment and comfort of patients.

"Although the group has not had their major fundraising luncheon this year, they have received a small number of donations the most recently being from the Cowra Croquet Club," President Graham Apthorpe said.

A quilt is on display at Cowra Services Club, provided as a donation by Michelle McNaught and raffle tickets are available at the Services Club bar area.
