Shooters back palliative care
Thursday, 19th September, 2019
During August the Broken Hill Field and Game Association conducted its annual charity shoot, with money raised donated to the Broken Hill Palliative Care Service.
There were nearly 50 shooters, both visitors and locals, plus family and friends in attendance. The shooters enjoyed a great weekend of shooting, and a great Saturday evening when chef Ricky Cooper and his crew of volunteers served up a magnificent three course dinner to all present.
The shooters and their families were more than happy to put their hand in their pocket for a worthy cause. The proceeds from the dinner, additional donations on the night, and a generous donation from Kerry Turley and the team at Discount Tyres Broken Hill, came to a total of $570.
A cheque was presented to Rebekah Zanette, Palliative Care Clinical Nurse Specialist for Broken Hill Palliative Care Service.
Melissa Cumming, Director Cancer and Palliative Care Services for Far West LHD thanked the Association for its continued support and advised that all money raised is used to support palliative care patients and their families in Broken Hill, through equipment purchases or services that help them to remain comfortable and safe in their own homes.
