Fewer cancer fundraisers

FUNDRAISING activities by the Biggenden branch of Cancer Council Queensland will be scaled back due to dwindling membership.

The decision was reluctantly made at a meeting on Thursday night, when it was also agreed to meet every two months, instead of monthly.

President Dianne MacDonald said the branch held several successful events in the past year, including Daffodil Day, which raised $2136 with support from the Childers community, and Girls Night In, which raised $973.
