Bloomhill Cancer Help is making a desperate plea to the Sunshine Coast community to support cancer care on the Coast by donating unwanted, saleable items to their Op Shops.
Bloomhill is a long-standing Buderim-based charity that provides support and assistance to people affected by cancer and their families throughout the Sunshine Coast.
Bloomhill President, Jenny Carroll said the op shops were seriously under-stocked and in dire need of quality, saleable donations including furniture, home wares, clothing and bric-a-brac.
“Spring is almost here, so it’s the perfect time to de-clutter your wardrobe and home,” Jenny said.
Bloomhill operates five Op Shops across the Sunshine Coast, and all the money raised from the sale of items going directly to fund the charity and the vital services it provides to its more than 900 clients.
“By choosing to generously donate goods to a Bloomhill Op Shop, you would be helping us to help your local community,” Jenny said.
“To make it easier for people to donate, Bloomhill even offers a free pick-up service,” Jenny said.
Operated by a team of dedicated staff and hundreds of volunteers, Bloomhill offers counselling, transport to appointments, respite care and a range of complementary therapies and other practically help.
With no ongoing government funding, Bloomhill relies on the money received from donations, fundraising activities, their several Op Shops throughout the Coast and most importantly, the support of the community, to continue providing its much-needed services.
“We are asking the community to dig deep to support cancer care on the Sunshine Coast,” Jenny said.
Bloomhill Op Shops are located in Buderim on Main Street, Nambour opposite the hospital, Maroochydore on First Ave, Mooloolaba on Brisbane Rd and Caloundra on Bullcock Street. There are even plans to open a sixth shop in Cooroy very soon.
