Drop in Centre - 2008

Project Partner: Cancer Council of Victoria
Sponsor: Ms Doreen Akkerman 
Value: $20,000

As a result of Doreen’s enthusiasm and involvement, in 2007, The Foundation helped with the Cancer Council’s “Drop In Centre”. Picchi Brothers donated $20,000.00 towards the purchase of comfortable and functional furniture to support people with advanced cancer. The urgent need for appropriate and functional seating was brought to the Cancer Council’s attention through verbal feedback from visitors to the Cancer Information Support and Services unit at The Cancer Council.

Doreen was the Director of Cancer Information and Support Services and worked for Cancer Council Victoria for over 20 years. Thank you so much Doreen!
