Club president Mark Stainsby said at the start of the tennis season last year the club made a commitment to donate $1 of every membership towards the Oncology Unit.

"We have 230 members and we topped it up to $300," Stainsby said.

"It's a small contribution to show our support and appreciation towards a facility that Stawell is so lucky to have.

"Every little bit helps."

In accepting the cheque Stawell Regional Health CEO Rohan Fitzgerald and oncology charge nurse Jan Sherwell were grateful and said that the money would go towards the purchase of a new blood pressure monitor.

Each year the Stawell Tennis Club caters for the Anzac Day Dawn Service breakfast which was again well supported by approximately 200 guests, who enjoyed the bacon and eggs.

The club sees it as an honour to be part of the Dawn Service and the support is greatly appreciated by the RSL.

Stawell RSL Sub Branch president, Geoff Reading accepted the cheque and said the welcome funds would contribute towards ongoing renovations.

Mr Reading also added that in 2015 Stawell could expect the amount of people attending the Dawn Service to double given the significance of the Anzac Centenary.
