The Ladies like to Lunch fundraising group continue to make a difference in the community.

Committee members Carla Filipakis, Grace Newcombe, Antoniette Sulfaro and Isabel Riservato recently delivered a care package to a patient at Liverpool Hospital.

The package was given to 62-year-old woman who has recently been diagnosed with myeloma.

"The woman was not doing so good at the time we visited but chatted with the husband who was so grateful to meet us," Carla said.

"After some time on the ward we met Cancer Council volunteers and nurse staff who took us around the oncology department and the cancer therapy centre.

"The nurses were very happy to have us visit and would like us to continue the good work by providing more care packages to patients that need it."

The fundraising group recently held their fifth Pink Ribbon luncheon where they raised $15,836.
