Sunshine Coast charity, Bloomhill Cancer Help is calling on locals to embrace the change of season and spring clean their homes and donate unwanted, saleable items to help restock its six Op Shops.
With more than 80 per cent of the charity’s funds raised through Op Shop sales, Bloomhill relies on generous donations from the community to continue providing its valuable services and support to those with cancer on the Coast.
Bloomhill General Manager Mervat Thompson said furniture, clothing and bric-a-brac were sought after but any quality, saleable donations were welcome.
“Our Op Shops are seriously understocked and we are asking the community to dig deep to support cancer care on the Sunshine Coast,” Ms Thompson said.
Bloomhill is a long-standing Buderim-based charity offering support and assistance to those affected by cancer and their families on the Sunshine Coast.
Operated by a team of dedicated staff and hundreds of volunteers, Bloomhill offers counselling, transport to appointments, respite care and a range of complementary therapies and other practical help.
Bloomhill Op Shops are located in Buderim on Main Street, Nambour opposite the hospital, Maroochydore on First Ave, Mooloolaba on Brisbane Rd, Caloundra on Bullcock Street and Cooroy on Maple Street.
“All the money raised from the sale of items goes directly to fund Bloomhill and the services it provides to its more than 900 clients.
“To make it easier for people to donate, Bloomhill even offers a free pick-up service for larger items,” Ms Thompson said.
