Generosity funds Cancer Research
THE Rockhampton North Rotary Club held a special evening to make a presentation of $25,000 to boost the funds for Cancer Research.
The money has been raised over the past year through the sales of the very popular Australian Bird Calendar and the club was pleased that Dr Mike Fay was able to travel to Rockhampton to accept the cheque. Dr Fay is the Principal Research Officer in charge of a number of Research teams not only working throughout Australia but he is also involved with teams from the UK, Germany, Canada and the USA as well.
Dr Fay was the guest speaker and gave a very interesting illustrated address on the progress being made to combat this frightening disease. He also pointed out how donations from previous calendar sales had been put to good use both in purchasing much needed equipment and by the researchers in the field.
