A generous donation will help Northeast Health Wangaratta (NHW) in the delivery of cancer treatment to patients.

Organisers of the Wangaratta Historic Motor Show and Fly In presented the $5000 donation to NHW Interim Chief Executive Officer Fiona Shanks this week.

The show attracted just under 5000 patrons when it was held in April this year at the Wangaratta Aerodrome.

Mick Daws from the show’s organising committee said NHW was a worthy recipient.

“The committee wanted to support regional and rural people receiving treatment for cancer,” he said.

“A few of us have been on the cancer journey and it’s nice to know this funding will help people in our local community.”

Ms Shanks said NHW was grateful for the donation.

“Thank you to the organisers of this amazingly successful show for choosing Northeast Health,” she said.

“Philanthropic donations from community groups and individuals make an enormous difference to Northeast Health and are always welcome.”
