Grafton Hope at Home Success!

On Saturday April 4th the Clarence Valley community saw local residents take part in Cancer Council’s first Hope at Home Initiative, following the postponement of the Relay For Life that was to be held that weekend. Relay For Life participants lit a Hope bag in their home in acknowledgement of the original night of Relay and in support of people living with cancer.

“The message of Hope at Home has grown more and more thanks to the help of the Clarence Valley community, and now there has been a state-wide date set on Wednesday 29th April where the entire state will place their Hope at Home bag on their porch in unison.” said Community Relations Coordinator, Erin Turnbull.

“Funds raised will continue to provide local patients with access to pro bono legal and financial assistance schemes and to our Northern Rivers Transport to Treatment service which will help local people get to and from their appointments,” said Erin
