THE Roma Cancer Council branch has been saved at the 11th hour, with a new executive committee stepping forward.
The members of the old executive committee announced earlier in 2012 they would step down after running the branch for many years.
Luckily, some fresh faces stepped up to the challenge, at the Cancer Council's last meeting on November 20, to take over the committee.
The local branch runs numerous events throughout the year, including the Relay For Life.
New chair Rosie Carlaw said the committee felt it could not let the local branch fall apart.
"Everyone in Roma has been affected by cancer or knows someone who has," Ms Carlaw said.
"It's important we keep the local branch going to raise an awareness and provide support."
Ms Carlaw said the executive was still looking for general committee members.
Vice-chair Janell Lobb said the old committee had announced the potential closure of the branch at this year's Relay For Life.
"We decided then to put our hands up," Ms Lobb said.
Former branch chair Julie Cook said the old committee wanted to welcome and thank Rosie Carlaw and the new committee for stepping forward.
"These new volunteers demonstrate the ongoing commitment of the Roma community," Ms Cook said.
To become a general committee member, call Rosie on 0427 234 001.
