Bloomhill Cancer Help is holding a ‘Commencement of Construction’ ceremony to celebrate the beginning of construction of the long-anticipated extension to its Therapy House on Tuesday, 15 November.

The event will start at 12pm at the Bloomhill Cancer Help House at 58 Ballinger Road, Buderim to mark the first step in the expansion, with former Olympian and Bloomhill patron, Raelene Boyle AM MBE leading the ceremony.

Bloomhill President, Jenny Carroll said the extension means people diagnosed with cancer and their families will have better access to services and support here on the Sunshine Coast.

“With more than 900 clients and growing, the Bloomhill Therapy House in Buderim had reached maximum capacity with treatment rooms sometimes booked for more than a month in advance,” Jenny said.

After almost a year of fundraising for the extension through their Target 300 campaign, the charity announced in June they had been granted a $500,000 funding boost from the Commonwealth of Australia to support the health needs of
regional communities. This grant will enable the extension and fit out to be completed.

“Target 300 got us well on our way, raising $90,000 and we are very grateful to everyone in the Sunshine Coast who generously donated to the campaign,” Jenny said.

“The money raised through Target 300 and the Government funding will be used to build and fit out five new therapy rooms, additional office space and hopefully also refurbish the entire Therapy House,” Jenny said.

Bloomhill Cancer Help is a Sunshine Coast based charity and provides support and assistance to those affected by cancer. Operated by a team of dedicated professional staff and hundreds of volunteers, Bloomhill offers counselling, transport to appointments, respite care and a range of complementary therapies and other practical help.
