Birdon is a proud supporter of the Jim Bruce Urology and Prostate Cancer Trust.
Every year the Jim Bruce Trust works with local businesses to put on a spectacular day at the races, with all funds raised going to improve the support for cancer patients around the Mid North Coast.
This year, the Jim Bruce Trust Marquee was located in prime position, on the inside track, with an unrivalled view of the race course and finish line. The Marquee was a sold out event and with the help of sponsors and guests the Trust raised close to $25,000.
The Jim Bruce Trust community gave thanks to their major sponsors, Fujitsu and Coolcene Air Conditioning, and local businesses Mid North Coast Weddings, The Stunned Mullet, Settlers Inn, Ella Bache, The Style Vibe, Coates Hire, Men at Work and Mount Seaview Spring Water. Without their generosity and support the day would not have been such a success.
The Jim Bruce Trust was established in honour of the late Jim Bruce, the founder of Birdon, after prostate cancer took him too early, in 2008. The Trust is committed to finding a cure for prostate cancer and supporting the people in our community who are living with cancer. To date, the Trust has raised over $500,000.
With the money raised, the Trust has funded the purchase of vital medical equipment, trained specialist urology nurses and employed a community urology nurse that travels to patients who are less mobile.
