A South West car club has donated to a cancer care organisation in honour of a lifetime member who died late last year.

The Radiators Street Rod and Custom Club presented Solaris Cancer Care — a service that helped lifetime member Arnold ‘Arnie’ Casagrande when he was battling illness — with a donation of $1000.

Club president David Gaunt said Arnie was a great friend and it was important for the club to support a service that helped him and his family.

“We’re grateful for what Solaris did for Arnie,” Mr Gaunt said.

“Hopefully this $1000 can help you to do great things down here for others.”

Solaris Cancer Care Bunbury manager Carline Turner said the donation was much appreciated, especially during a difficult year.

“It’s amazing people like yourselves that help us to stay open and help other people in the community,” Ms Turner said.
