North Cricket Club donate to hospital

North Broken Hill Cricket Club team members Jordan Vella, Ethan Thomas and Dennis Watts present the $1500 to Oncology nurses Victoria Crook and Ben Stellini.

North Broken Hill Cricket Club have donated funds to the local hospital in support of its Oncology Unit.

In February, the players wore pink to generate awareness for breast cancer, which led to raising $1500 through a crowdfunding page and player contributions.

Melissa Cumming, Program Director for Cancer Services in Broken Hill, thanked the North Broken Hill Cricket Club for their generous donation to the Oncology Unit.

The funds will be used to support patients while they undergo chemotherapy or immunotherapy in the unit.

North Cricket Club’s Tobias Hack said members were eager to support the important cause due to personal connections.

“Club members wanted to raise money for the local Oncology Unit as everyone has a story relating to cancer, particularly breast cancer.,” he said.

“Whilst both women and men can get breast cancer, we know of many grandmothers, mothers, wives, sisters and aunts impacted by breast cancer. It’s a family journey as well.”

The club look forward to showing its ongoing support in the future.

“This is something that the club is passionate about and will continue to wear these uniforms during February each year,” Mr Hack said.
