Bloomhill President, Jenny Carroll said Bloomhill Open Day would give people a chance to see first hand what the dedicated staff and volunteers did at the Bloomhill Centre.
“The Bloomhill Centre will be open from 9.30am to 4pm for walk-throughs, everyone is welcome,” Jenny said.
The Bloomhill Cancer Help Centre, at 58 Ballinger Road, Buderim offers support for people with cancer and their families across the Sunshine Coast offering a range of services and complementary therapies including respite care, counselling, transport to appointments and holistic therapies.
“Bloomhill is all about helping people to live well with cancer,” Jenny said.
As a not-for-profit organisation without any ongoing Government funding, Bloomhill relies on the money received from its Op Shops in Mooloolaba, Buderim, Caloundra, Noosa, Nambour and Maroochydore, Government grants, fundraising activities and donations in order to continue providing its high level of care and services.
“Without the support and generosity of the community and local businesses we wouldn’t be able to continue our important work and extend our services to the many more families who need help,” Jenny said.
“Bloomhill was there for me during every step of my illness. I really appreciated having the centre there as a real safe haven for me when I needed to escape from the stresses of daily life.” said Bloomhill member.
