Supporting cancer projects in the Hastings and Macleay Valley regions since 2005

A Warm Welcome from The Hastings Cancer Trust

We are a local non-profit charity organisation operated entirely by volunteers, and without premises, every cent donated goes to support our local community. We believe providing a full spectrum of cancer services to the Hastings Macleay and surrounding regions makes an incredible difference to local patients and their families coping with cancer.
