Can Assist Bathurst has successfully secured funding from the Essential Energy Community Choices program to further assist cancer patients in the community.
The organisation applied for the grant last month to further supplement their green slip assistance scheme for cancer patients, and received enough votes from members of the community to ensure their success.
Can Assist Bathurst president Gen Croaker offered her sincere thanks on behalf of the organisation to members of the community who voted.
"These funds will be used to financially assist cancer patients who are in need of support during this difficult time," Ms Croaker said.
"We deeply appreciate the community support without which we would not be able to provide a supportive avenue for those in need."
The green slip assistance scheme primarily assists local cancer patients who commute to Orange for six weeks of daily radiotherapy appointments.
The scheme was launched in May and, due to a surge in demand, the initial $3000 budget was exhausted in 10 days.
"We already have three patients on the waiting list, so we're eager to see what we get from Essential Energy," Ms Croaker said.
Can Assist stand to receive as much as $2500 from the program.
