An anonymous $250,000 donation to the Wimmera Cancer Centre has bought the project’s community fundraising tally to more than $1.4-million.
Wimmera Health Care Group acting chief executive Mark Knights said the mystery philanthropist was a Horsham resident who had chosen to remain anonymous.
The donor said in a statement they could not think of a more important cause for the Wimmera at this time.
“Not everyone has the means to make a donation like this but all donations, successful grants and government contributions of any size will contribute to helping get the centre built in one stage, not over several stages,” they said.
“I am hopeful that with my donation and continued support from the community and the State Government, together we will see the Wimmera Cancer Centre go ahead in one building phase.”
Mr Knights said he lacked the words to express his gratitude for the donation.
“This contribution is the largest we have received and it is incredibly significant to the project’s success,” he said. “The support shown to this project by the communities of the Wimmera and southern-Mallee is truly humbling.
“All contributions made to the centre will have a lasting impact on the region’s health for many years to come and we just can’t say thank-you enough.”
The site for the centre, at the corner of Robinson and Arnott streets in Horsham, has been cleared.
Project leaders expect building work to start in the second half of this year.
