Around 200 people turned out to support the Bega Valley Relay For Life and enjoy the hilarious film, Mrs Brown's Boys - D’Movie on Monday evening, July 21.
The foyer of the Merimbula Picture Show Man was packed as film goers crowded in to have nibbles supplied by the Relay For Life committee.
Speaking prior to the show, president of the Relay For Life, Greg Whitby said: “When you discover someone you know has cancer, you don’t always know what to do; well being part of the Relay For Life is something you can do and it will help.”
Supporters were told that local cancer survivor, Sue-Ellen Yates would be attending a conference in Sydney this weekend to make sure that the voices from the Bega Valley are heard. In particular she will be raising the issue of the chemotherapy co-payment.
Sarah Flynn of the Cancer Council NSW thanked the Picture Show Man for supporting the cause. “We had 200 through the door. It was so great to get the support from Tim and Dennis Parkes, and we could not have done it without them,” Sarah said.
The Bega Valley Relay For Life was moved to October 11, 12 after being washed out in April.
