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 many organisations over the years.
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.
