In 2010 Newcastle Airport selected the Hunter Breast Cancer Foundation as its Charity of Choice, and since then year all proceeds from the Airport's charity events, including golf days have been donated to the Foundation. Since 2010 $210,000 has been donated to the Foundation.
The Foundation uses Newcastle Airport’s funds to produce hygiene-grade comfort cushions for women who have breast cancer surgery in the Hunter. These cushions offer breast support post-surgery. A grassroots organisation, the Foundation also assists with things taken for granted when we’re well; such as transportation to-and-from treatment, house cleaning, and garden care.
