Read the original Hackers help out palliative care service by Jarrard Potter in the Daily Examiner.

While there were some rusty swings and hacks at the Westlawn Charity Golf Day, it was all for a good cause with more than $1500 raised to help support the CRANES Palliative Care Volunteer Support Service.

With 15 volunteers giving up their time to help run the support service, Clarence Valley Palliative Care Volunteer Support Service program manager Maggie Barnewall said the donation was appreciated.

"Everybody is unpaid and they all do such a great job,” Ms Barnewall said.

"This donation really goes towards helping cover our operating costs.

"We're helping people stay at home. Some people die in hospital because they have to but we help give people a choice and with the palliative care volunteers and all the donations we get to help provide to community nurses to use is really important as well.”
