Without the backing of the Hunter business community, much of the work of the Hunter Breast Cancer Foundation would not be possible. The Foundation receives no Government funding, so therefore relies on the generosity of the local community for donations. The Foundation has been fortunate to form a partnership with a number of organisations over the years.

Pink Partner

Newcastle Airport

Local people who undergo breast cancer surgery are the beneficiaries of a partnership between Newcastle Airport Limited and the Hunter Breast Cancer Foundation.

The partnership provides funding to help the Foundation produce post surgery cushions for people in the region.

The cushion is used by patients who have undergone a mastectomy or lumpectomy. The cushion provides protection and comfort post surgery and while travelling. They have been produced by the Foundation since it was established over 10 years ago and are made by teams of volunteers.

The partnership with Newcastle Airport allows the Foundation to offset the cost of materials for the cushions enabling it to resource some of the other important levels of support it provides.


Silver Partners

Peterson Champagne House

Peterson Champagne House have for many years had a strong partnership with the Hunter Breast Cancer Foundation.

Based in the Hunter Valley, Peterson’s are a local company dedicated to helping local men and women with breast cancer in the Hunter, by being the main sponsor of the annual Bubbly Breakfast event.


 Newcastle Permanent Charitable Foundation

Newcastle Permanent Charitable Foundation makes a meaningful difference in the lives of those in need. The Foundation has supported the HBCF with the purchase of a company vehicle which allows us to continue one of our integral supportive care services; transporting patients to and from their medical appointments.



ClubsNSW is the peak body for registered clubs in NSW, a not-for-profit industry which employs more than 41,000 staff, includes more than 44,000 volunteers and is home to more than 5.7 million members. They are an ongoing partner of the Foundation, using their wide-reach to raise awareness and funds.



Hunter United

Hunter United commenced life in 1963 as the BHP (Newcastle) Employees’ Credit Union and has progressively grown into a community based financial institution serving the Hunter Valley. They are the largest locally based credit union and has seven branches across the region including Broadmeadow, Charlestown, Glendale, Jesmond, Marketown East, Mayfield and Greenhills (East Maitland).

Hunter United have a pink credit card, featuring the logo of the HBCF, and provide financial support as well as vital awareness raising.

Nova Credit Union

Nova Credit Union was established in 1964. It started life as Hunter Water Board Employees Credit Union and after a merger with Newcastle Herald Employees Credit Union, became Nova Credit Union. They have been proudly serving the Hunter Community ever since.
