Deer, pigs, dogs, cats – feral animals causing serious damage

There is a surge in feral animals across NSW and the risk of feral deer becoming established on the North Coast and NSW farmers and local councils are calling for action. 

Cancer Council NSW would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to our volunteers in the far north coast and northern rivers areas for their support as we mark our 60th birthday on the May 13 this year.

It is fitting that our organisation turns 60 years old in the same week as National Volunteer Week, where we recognise and celebrate the six million Australians who donate their time across the country.

Today, Cancer Council NSW has over 32,500 volunteers and community supporters across NSW. These volunteers generously donate their time working in a number of different roles to enable us to provide cancer prevention, advocacy and support programs, to run events such as Relay for Life and Daffodil Day and to invest over $130 million into research over the past ten years.

As we celebrate 60 years of Cancer Council NSW I would like to sincerely thank all our volunteers, both past and present, for their support.

If you are interested in getting involved we have a number of opportunities currently available, from being on a committee to organise an event, to facilitating nutrition workshops for parents of fussy eaters, to presenting educational talk to the community, and many more. If you would like to volunteer for Cancer Council NSW please contact me on (02) 6639 1305.

Dani Yannoulis, Coordinator of Volunteering for Northern NSW, Cancer Council NSW


Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
