Funerals can be an extremely difficult time and it may help to know that by donating to Cancer Council Tasmania in lieu of flowers it is a meaningful way to honour their memory whilst contributing to others affected by cancer. Your gift, no matter how small, makes a difference and without your support we would not be able to support those who look to us for support. Cancer Council Tasmania is 90 per cent funded by local community.
If you make a donation in memory, we will send a tax deductible receipt to the donor and a letter to the bereaved advising them of your kind gesture.
The amount donated remains confidential.
