Who We Are

In 2014, a small group of friends put their heads together and decided to organise a fundraiser for local families struggling with the financial costs of cancer.

We all had our reasons for wanting to do this – in a nutshell, like most people, cancer had affected our lives in varying degrees. Our goal was to raise $5000. On the first Friday in August 2014, the very first Cocktails for Cancer fundraiser was held in Devonport, and raised a whopping $17,000! Little did we realise just how much the people of the North West Coast wanted to support their community – what an overwhelming response!

As a group, we wanted to honour the outpouring of support and ensure that all the money we raised stayed local, and went directly to the people that needed it. And so, Cancer Fighting Fund NW Tasmania Inc was formed.
