Who We Are

The Cancer Society of NZ Hawke’s Bay Centre Inc. is an incorporated society with charitable status. We are a member of the Central Districts Division. We are a not-for-profit organisation funded by caring New Zealanders.  Our federated structure includes a Cancer Society of New Zealand National Office in Wellington, six divisions and 15 centres throughout New Zealand, all involved in raising funds and providing local services.

How We Operate

We are a charity and many people are surprised to learn we receive very little government funding but rely on the generosity of our caring local businesses and the community for donations (tax deductible), community fundraising, sponsorship, bequests and volunteer support to run our services.

Volunteers are the backbone of our Centre and organisation. Our Centre is governed by a volunteer Executive Committee of up to 10 members elected at the Annual General Meeting in July.  We have around 40 supportive regular volunteers who help our supportive care team by driving cancer patients to treatment, assist with support groups and others who help with fundraising, special events, administration, and general maintenance.

We have 10 employed staff in the Hawke’s Bay region. Staff to look after the day-to-day operations of the Centre, supportive care services, drive the Cancer Society shuttle transporting clients to radiation oncology treatment in Palmerston North, co-ordinate health promotion programmes, coordinate fundraising/special events, and support our volunteers.
