In more positive local news, the Forbes Business Chamber has donated a percentage of the proceeds from the Taste On Templar evening Forbes Can Assist and the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation, with both community groups receiving $9000 each.
Fiona Ferguson from the Forbes Business Chamber was delighted to be able to present on behalf of the Chamber and said the funds were vital as the groups have been “stretched to their maximum throughout the pandemic with many families struggling due to COVID and the restrictions required throughout this period.”
Forbes Can Assist’s John Schrader described the donation as “amazing,” after his group had been finding it “difficult like everyone else to raise funds during the pandemic.”
Funds for Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation will continue to work towards creating more education, awareness and protection for women from ovarian cancer where no woman will feel endangered by one of our biggest killers.
The funding donation will also allow researchers to continue to fight the scourge of ovarian cancer – a silent killer among our nation’s women.
“Thank you to all those who also volunteered their time and effort during Taste On Templar 2021 and over Christmas,” Fiona said.
