2016 Christmas Appeal-Airport _News



Newcastle Airport's bean counters have been busy collating the results from our Christmas Giving Appeal and it is with gratitude that we say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who took part in the 2016 appeal.

Due to our passengers’ generosity and the tireless fundraising efforts of our retailers a total of $5,425 was raised during the four-week Christmas Appeal. The  willingness of our retail partners - including both the spotless and AWPL staff members - to help us raise funds for our charity of choice was so humbling. It was the enthusiasm and support of our business partners that lead to this amazing result.

With coins donated on our terminal collection buckets and through the selling of Christmas baubles that were used to make some very elaborate displays in the departures lounge, these funds will directly benefit families in the Hunter who are going through the rigors of treatment for breast cancer.

The enthusiasm with which our retailers got behind the appeal and the creative ways they designed the baubles really made a festive atmosphere in the departures terminal and highlighted the message behind our appeal.

Since 2010, NAPL has raised more than $225,000 for our charity of choice HBCF with monies raised contributing to, among many other things, comfort cushions, the purchase of a vehicle used for patient transport, and a wig library. All monies donated remains in the Hunter and goes to Locals in need.

The Foundation is unique as they offer support at every stage of the breast cancer treatment journey, either during new diagnosis, during treatment, or post-treatment. The dedicated service helps with practical day-to-day supportive care and physiological support fir those with breast cancer and their families that live in the Hunter region. As a not-for-profit and volunteer-run organisation, every dollar donated to the Foundation is invested into delivering grass-roots supportive care for men, women and families in the Hunter region and Central Coast.

Well done everyone.
