Around 30 cars rolled into Broken Hill yesterday, as part of the 2010 Crusin’ Along Car Rally.
The Rally is a fundraising drive for Cancer Care Western New South Wales – who are building a Lodge in Orange, for regional cancer patients undergoing radiotherapy treatment.
Fundraising Chairwoman, Jan Savage says while Broken Hill residents often seek treatment in Adelaide, there will soon be another option available to them.
“There was no accommodation and actually no radiotherapy facility available for a lot of the western area people,” she said.
“The accommodation and the cancer treatment centre, the bunkers, will be open in about 12 months time at the end of April, beginning of May 2011.”
The Rally will travel to White Cliffs tonight.
