Community Fundraising & Awareness


When my wife (pictured) was diagnosed with Bowel Cancer in June this year, our previously calm and controlled world stopped momentarily. After we gathered our thoughts and prepared Michelle for her treatment, I recalled what a great man in Neale Daniher (MND sufferer) told me: Be a doer, not a thinker….be a giver, not a taker!

We thank the Classic Ladies Foundation for their generous donation as part of their 2017 fundraising activities, helping Bowel Cancer Australia to continue having an everlasting impact on our health future – one where no Australian dies from bowel cancer.
The fundraising included a number of activities including a monster raffle, merchandise, a charity auction, and social event at the Landmark Classic Campdraft Sale, held annually in Tamworth.
The William Tennent Sunset Cruise was an event created to raise money for Bowel Cancer Australia in honour of Bill Tennent of Rockhampton, Queensland. Bill has been battling bowel cancer with secondaries for almost two years and was, unfortunately, too ill to attend the cruise on November 19th.
This year the Pymble golf club ladies’ Melbourne cup committee chose to support Bowel Cancer Australia for their fundraising which began with a fashion parade and afternoon tea in June.
The parade showcased golf apparel from three different companies and was attended by nearly a hundred ladies from the club. It was a great way to begin our fundraising for the year and they raised nearly $2500 from the day.
The next big event was a luncheon on Melbourne Cup Day which began with nearly 80 members and guests having a fun game of golf and 30 ladies playing bridge. Lunch followed with 200 guests attending.
A big congratulations to Amy for supporting Bowel Cancer Australia through the 2016 Melbourne Marathon.
"It was my first marathon and it was a very windy day in Melbourne so it was tough! I decided to raise funds for Bowel Cancer Australia as a family friend was recently diagnosed. I also put a story in my work’s newsletter about my fundraising and asking people to Join the Bowel Movement so there was a lot of discussion last week at work as well as donations. My fundraising page is open until the end of the month but so far I’m up to $2650 which is well above my original goal of $1500". said Amy.
