All-time highest fundraiser visits Liverpool Hospital
Earlier this year Peter Durrington and his wife Donna visited Liverpool Cancer Therapy Centre to see how Dry July funds have made a difference to patients. Since 2012, Peter has raised over $100k for Dry July.
Peter and Donna met Janet Heslep on the day. Janet is the new Wellness Program Manager at LCTC. Dry July funds have gone toward fitting out stage 1 of the Wellness Centre and toward wellness programs.
Barbeque Area at Liverpool Hospital
The outdoor area for the Cancer Services Interim Wellness Centre provides an area for patients to gather and attend support groups and also learn skills with outdoor BBQ cooking. The barbeque was purchased with funds from Dry July 2013.
Peter Durrington - Dry July Legend
On Saturday 21st June, ‘Frequent Dryer’ Peter Durrington held a Dry July Fundraiser in Camden in memory of his friend Scott Tully, who lost his battle with cancer in September 2013.
Peter is a Dry July Legend, in every sense of the word. He has been taking part in Dry July since 2012 and to date, he has raised over $70,000 for Liverpool Therapy Cancer Centre through Dry July, and his 2014 campaign has only just started!
Check out some photos from his 2014 fundraising event, and from all of us here at Dry July, we’d like to extend our sincere thanks and appreciation to Peter and Donna and all the work they do for Dry July.
Additions at Liverpool Cancer Therapy Centre
LCTC is refurbishing an outdoor area adjacent to the new Wellness Centre (a Dry July funded project) to provide an area for patients to gather and attend support groups and sessions. This will include furnishings, a pergola and outdoor BBQ.
The cancer centre is also installing a new coffee machine for patients to access in the treatment waiting area, as well as a patient beeper system which will enable patients to move about while waiting for their appointments.
