Daily backing of the cancer fight
THE Warwick Daily News has got strongly behind this year's Relay for Life, fielding our very own team - the Page Turners.
With a goal of turning the page on cancer, staff have rallied to the cause with a number of fundraising endeavours - from money boards to personal donations.
Team captain and the Daily News' senior reporter Candyce Braithwaite said it was a privilege to be involved in Relay for Life.
"It's our job to know what's happening in the community and we are proud to be involved in events like this," she said.
"Almost everyone knows someone who has been affected by cancer.
"I was extremely delighted to hear the committee had raised over $100,000 this year with our support."
Throughout the year, the Daily News has profiled
participating teams and promoted fundraisers to help the event raise as much money for the Cancer Council of Queensland as possible. Miss Braithwaite said the ability to help drive Relay for Life through the paper proved the strong presence the Daily News had in the community.
"In our 150th year we are still the number one news source for Warwick and the Southern Downs," Miss Braithwaite said.
"If anyone is organising a community event I would encourage them to come to our office and have a chat about sponsorship.
"The success of the Relay for Life proves our sponsorship will help drive the event and make it bigger and better than ever before."
