Suzanne Newnham, Coordinator of the Peninsula Cancer Support Group wrote the following letter:
“On behalf of the Peninsula Cancer Support Group many thanks to Ritchies for the wonderful Community Benefit Scheme. Cancer patients require support in many and varied ways and the regular payments we receive have helped contribute to the petrol costs of volunteer drivers, upgrade our library books, videos, C.D.'s and tapes, increase the distribution of our information brochure and subsequent postage charges and in numerous other areas.
Although we are affiliated with the Cancer Council, we receive no financial support from them and therefore we are required to seek our own sources of funding to continue catering for the many needs of cancer patients and their family and friends who are all touched by the illness. Once again many thanks.”
