Amie St Clair Melanoma Trust
The Amie St Clair Melanoma Trust is a local charity established after Amie St Clair lost her battle with Melanoma at the young age of 23. All moneys raised stays in our local community which supports Education Programs and funds our very own Melanoma Nurse to stay Free of Charge for all Melanoma patients and their families.
BrAshA-T (Walk to Everest for A-T)
Wagga siblings Charlie (4yrs) and Zara Millar (2yrs) have both been diagnosed with Ataxia-Telangiectasia (A-T). A-T is a progressive condition that worsens with time. It causes degeneration of the cerebellum in the brain, which means children who were once able to walk are confined to a wheelchair by the age of 10. A-T also weakens the immune system, causing respiratory infections. With the added complication of being unable to repair damaged DNA, children with A-T have a high incidence of cancer, which is sadly often fatal. All funds raised will make it possible to fund much needed research into A-T, which gives hope to families like the Millar’s for treatment and ultimately, a cure.
Sisters Housing Enterprises Inc. (SHE)
Sisters Housing Enterprises Inc provides services to women and women with children who are experiencing or who are at risk of becoming homeless. SHE provides safe accommodation in a communal setting for women in crisis. Funds from Hometown Heroes would enable SHE to replace items of furniture in each of the bedrooms.
