The Port Macquarie and District 4WD has donated $1000 to the Jim Bruce Trust.
The club raised $500 through donations at a 4WD track ride at the annual caravan and camping show at Wauchope Showground. But members decided to top up the donation for the Trust.
4WD club vice president Peter Wilson said organisations such as the Jim Bruce Urology and Prostate Cancer Trust are important to the local region when it comes to fighting prostate cancer.
‘We all know of someone that has been affected by this debilitating disease which is why the club’s 80 strong members decided wholeheartedly to support the Jim Bruce Trust in the fight against urological cancers,” Mr Wilson said.
“The cub raised $500 from the 4WD track ride but members decided to double that to a $1000 donation for the Trust due to the important work undertaken in the local region for men’s health, urological care and the treatment against prostate cancer.
“The Port Macquarie and District 4WD Club undertakes some great community work along with the numerous local and interstate 4WD trips we, as club members, have enjoyed over the years.”
Established in 1975 by a few 4WD enthusiasts, the 4WD Club recently celebrated its 40 year anniversary and has gone from strength to strength with more than 100 members.
The Jim Bruce Urology and Prostate Cancer Trust was established in 2009 by the Bruce Family for the urological care and treatment of prostate cancer, particularly for residents on the NSW Mid North Coast.
“Support from local groups such as the Port Macquarie and District 4WD Club is vital to continuing the work that we do to enhance urological care on the Mid North Coast, and we are very grateful for their donation,” said Dr Nader Awad, Trustee and Urological Specialist.
“Donations like these will help us to continue our work in the fight against prostate cancer.”
