THE CanDo Cancer Trust received a pre-Christmas boost thanks to accounting firm Davies, Knox, Maynard.

For DKM group director Greg Mallam, the gift of $2250 to support cancer patients attending the North Coast Cancer Institute in Coffs Harbour was particularly poignant.

"My mother died from cancer when I was young and facing the situation was very difficult," Greg said.

"Everyone's lives have been touched by someone with the disease."

CanDo chair Julie Jardine said DKM's donation was from the money normally spent on Christmas cards.

"It is a great idea. They have been doing this every year for the past four years," Ms Jardine said.

She said CanDo was a perfect charity for DKM's sponsorship as the group focused on helping people with their financial health, which aligned with CanDo's aim to help the financial needs of patients. CanDo aims to help two to three patients/families per week by paying for food, fuel and household bills.
