BUNBURY Kia have recently donated a new vehicle to Cancer Council West Australia's South West Support Centre, Dot's Place in Bunbury.

The new Kia Cerato will allow volunteer drivers to continue the centres Transport to Treatment program.

Cancer Council West Australia's Cancer Information and Support Services Director Melanie Marsh said Cancer Council West Australia was extremely grateful to the Jones family from Bunbury Kia for the vehicle.

"The new Kia Cerato's increased size will allow extra room for patients' walkers and wheelchairs," Ms Marsh said.

"This will enable staff and volunteers at Dot's Place in Bunbury to continue Cancer Council WA's much valued Transport to Treatment service which provides transport to regional cancer patients who would otherwise experience difficulty getting to essential medical appointments."

"If it weren't for the generosity of individuals and businesses like Bunbury Kia, who have been supporting Cancer Council WA for more than 20 years, we wouldn't be able to continue to do what we do, which is to lessen the impact of those affected by cancer."

Scott Jones from Bunbury Kia said that they were delighted to be able to continue to support Cancer Council West Australia.

"Cancer is something that affects everyone's family at some stage, so we are happy to continue supporting an organisation that in turn supports so many in our community," Mr Jones said.

"People in Bunbury are familiar with Dot's Place and the amazing staff there that go out of their way to help others so really it's just our way of giving back."

Dot's Place in Bunbury is open from Monday to Friday, 9am till 4:30pm, at 62 Forrest Avenue, Bunbury.
