H.E.L.P. Club donation to BH Palliative Care Services
Broken Hill’s iconic weight loss support club H.E.L.P (Healthy Eating Loses Pounds) has closed its doors after 48 years. The H.E.L.P Club is a support group for people wanting to lose weight and has raised funds for various charities over the years.
At their final meeting, the H.E.L.P Club voted to donate any remaining funds to Broken Hill Specialist Palliative Care Service.
Melva Davidson, who has been President since the group’s inception in 1975, said: “The Club has much pleasure in presenting a cheque for $3,000 to Broken Hill Palliative Care for all the wonderful work that they do”.
Melissa Cumming Director Cancer and Palliative Care Services FWLHD thanked the club for their very generous donation, which will be used to support palliative care patients and families in the Broken Hill Community.
