Bloomhill Cancer Help is launching its most ambitious fund raising task ever – so it can build a desperately needed extension to it’s centre to enable it to help more people with cancer and their families on the Susnhine Coast.
Target 300 – to be launched at midday on Friday 13th August – aims to raise $300,000 by attracting the support of 300 Sunshine Coast businesses, clubs, organisations or individuals to donate $1000 each. Smaller donations will of course also be accepted – every little bit will help this local charity support the local community.
Bloomhill Vice President and Target 300 Coordinator, Brett Graham, said that Bloomhill has needed an extension for more than a year so it can offer more services and cater for its constantly growing number of members.
Bloomhill offers support to those affected by cancer and their families throughout the Sunshine Coast region. Operated by a dedicated team of staff and hundreds of volunteers, Bloomhill provides a range of services and complimentary therapies including respite care, transport to appointments and counselling.
“Bloomhill doesn’t receive any ongoing government funding so we rely on the money received through our several Op Shops, donations, grants and fundraising activities, like Target 300, in order to continue providing our valuable services” Brett said.
“At the moment, the Bloomhill Centre is at maximum capacity with our treatment rooms booked for more than a month in advance.
“We now have over 800 members, a great deal more than last year, which is why we desperately need this extension,” Brett said.
