Relay for life

VOLUNTEER committee members are being sought to help organise the 2014 Manning Valley Relay For Life, to be held in Taree on November 8 and 9.

The next committee meeting will be held at 5.30pm today (Thursday) at Club Taree.

Relay For Life is an overnight festival-like event with live music, food and fun activities. It is a time to celebrate those who have survived cancer, remember those who have passed away from cancer and fight back against cancer. The event takes a great deal of organising and Cancer Council NSW is looking for enthusiastic people, young and old, to help organise this event. If you are a new resident to the area this is a great way to get to know your community and make new friends. 

The Manning Valley Relay For Life is a biannual event.  “There are many exciting roles to be filled”, said Eliza Voshege, community relations coordinator, Cancer Council NSW.  “We need your help with all aspects of the relay and we encourage you to bring some great ideas as to how we can improve the Relay for 2014. 

 If you would like to come on board or find out more, please come along to the meeting or call Eliza on 0428 661 191 or email
