THE future of the Bathurst District Prostate Support Group looks grim if more members aren’t recruited into executive roles.

The group was formed in 2000 and for the last 17 years has supported men and their families as they battle and recover from prostate cancer.

Treasurer Tony Sutton said the group meets regularly, but for the past 12 months has operated without any leaders.

“We’ve got a regular 20 or so people who turn up to meetings, but no one is up to be in the executive,” he said.

Two major roles need to be filled in executive, chairman and secretary. 

Mr Sutton said there are people who may be able to take on the role of secretary, but not chairman.

People who take on these roles would need to have a few hours a week they can dedicate to the group.

Those who are interested in joining the group in an executive capacity are asked to attended the annual general meeting on February 21 at Daffodil Cottage.

No prior experience is needed.
