CANCER patients at Daffodil Cottage are set to benefit after more than $50,000 was donated to the centre.
The donation of $53,015.15 was from Hope Charitable Group, which raised the money at a charity night at BoxGrove back in May.
Daffodil Cottage oncology pharmacist Victoria Stevens said the money will go into the high cost drug fund.
"It's used for people who are unable to afford treatment for cancer that is not covered by the Medicare levy," she said.
"It's made such a difference to so many people. It was used for 10 people in the 2018-19 financial year and it has been used by another five this financial year so far.
"It really helps take that financial and emotional burden off patients and their families."
The inaugural Hope charity event in 2017 raised $7800 and that total has increased in subsequent years.
"A lot of younger people rather than older people have been donating, which is fantastic because the community is more aware of cancer at a younger age," Ms Stevens said.
Melissa Hodges, from Hope Charitable Group, said the support from the community has been amazing.
"Over the years we've had the same numbers come along to the Hope events but more people are donating money," she said.
"It's great to see money stay in the community that'll help support the community."
