Meet The Team
Cancer Fighting Fund Committee
The Cancer Fighting Fund Committee
A group of us started this charity to try and help our local community. I feel extremely grateful to be able to help people in a very stressful time in their lives.
When i decided to go along to a Cancer Fighting Fund meeting for the first time, i didn't know what to expect. I wanted to give back to in some small way to my local community and i'm glad i did, because i now find myself surrounded by other ladies who want to help make a difference too.
Why join: Because cancer SUCKS!!! We have all lost someone to cancer and i hate to see people struggling with life circumstances while they fight.
I attended the first ever Cocktails for Cancer event and had a blast! From there i decided to join the committee and I've been a member ever since.
I wanted to do something practical to help others after losing my mother to cancer. Easing the often unseen financial stress for people undergoing cancer treatment is one way we can make a difference.
Fiona is a dedicated and caring person who generously donates much of her time to the committee and is always willing to give a helping hand.
Cancer has touched a lot of my immediate family and then it was my husband, when cancer hits there is no warning, usually not a chance to catch your breath. Everyone is sympathetic, but not one person pointed us in the right direction for any help or support.
I was one of the original committee members when the CFFNW was formed in 2014. I was also going through my own cancer battle after being diagnosed late 2013. I wanted to join to help others going through the same stressful situation i unexpectedly found myself in.
Having my own family go through the Cancer battle, i wanted to give back and be apart of a small team who has committed to helping our own community in their time of need.
What We Do
In 2014, a small group of friends put their heads together and decided to organise a fundraiser for local families struggling with the financial costs of cancer.
Each year we strive to bring our local community a fun and exciting event which involves our team of dedicated committee members. We are always wanting to take things to a new level and for that, we need your support. If you can dedicate 1-2 hours each month to attend meetings and help organise events then we would love to have you!
Join Our Cancer Fighting Fund Committee
We are always on the look out for people who have experience with event organising, fundraising and are involved in our local community here on the North West of Tasmania.
Organising events is such a fun way to help bring something new to our community and raise much-needed funds along the way. New ideas are always welcome and extra hands make light work.
What To Expect When You Join Our Friendly Committee
Monthly meetings where we discuss upcoming events, new ideas, general business, updates on funds given plus there’s always a laugh or two.
If this sounds like something you are interesting in being part of please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will let you know when our next meeting is.
