On a balmy summer evening of Saturday 3rd February, 2018 Rotarians from Rotary clubs ranging from the city to the country came to the historic Wharf, beside the majestic Murray River in Echuca to have super to support the continuing work of funding towards the completion and use of ROCAN cancer wellness centre.
Supported by partners and community members, all in attendance had a great night of fellowship and fundraising, whilst listening to the dulcet tones of easy to follow and dance to, local band, The Healers.
Teal being the theme colour for the night in recognition of Ovarian Cancer month, a long table was set up down the centre of the Wharf along the line that marked the state border of Victoria and New South Wales.
There being no borders at all regarding the commencement and spread of cancer of any sort.
The ROCAN cancer wellness centre, to be situated in the west with close proximity to hospitals and treatment centres, will be available for individuals and families needing support and accommodation whilst needing specialist care in this field when too far from the comfort of their own homes.
ROCAN stalwart Yvonne Moon OAM from Williamstown Rotary had much pleasure in welcoming and thanking all those in attendance for coming along to make the night the success that it was.
Current president of Rochester Rotary, Bryan Griffiths was most honoured to accept the invitation from Yvonne to become Regional Ambassador for the ROCAN cancer wellness centre.
It is planned to hold a similar event in the country on a regular basis in support of this project along with keeping the community updated in ways that they may come involved to assist people in need to avail of this service.
