When it comes to collecting, Kiwanis can

THE cans have stacked up for the Warrnambool Kiwanis Club.

Donations by the public to the Peter’s Project collection cans, distributed by the club throughout the south-west, enabled it to this week hand over $16,300 to the project.

This week’s donation comes on top of the $21,500 received through the collection cans that the club handed over some time ago, bringing the total amount raised so far to more than $37,500.

The Kiwanis have about 200 Peter’s Project collection cans at locations throughout the south-west and regularly collect money from them.

The Kiwanis have run the collection cans for the past three-and-half-years and will continue to do so until Peter’s Project reaches its target of  $5 million — the community’s contribution to a radiotherapy centre to be built in Warrnambool to treat cancer patients.

Having a local radiotherapy centre will save many cancer patients from having to travel long distances for treatment.
