A GOLD coin is all you need to take home top prize and support local cancer patients this Christmas.
Tickets for Can Assist's festive raffle will go on sale on Friday, and after their previous fundraising efforts fell victim to COVID-19, volunteers are calling out for help to raise money.
To take financial pressure and stress off those battling cancer any funds raised will go towards helping locals in the community.
Just $2 will put you in the running to win a truck load of goodies, but if that wasn't good enough, Can Assist volunteer Jill Grey said every donation will personally help a local cancer battler with bills, groceries and anything they need.
"You don't need that added pressure and added stress when you're going through cancer treatment," she said.
To do what they do, volunteer Robyn Fitzgerald said Can Assist relies solely on the help of the community.
"If people don't come and help, we can't assist the patients."
Ms Fitzgerald said she'd seen first hand the impact these funds can have.
"You speak to them [patients] when they try to ask for some type of help and you can hear their voice quivering, but once you say 'that's what we're here for', they're so appreciative."
Ticket sales will start today at 10am on Friday at the Post Office on Peel Street and will continue every Friday up until December 18 when the raffle will be drawn.
