Donation to Hunter Medical Research Institute (HMRI)

Published: 24 Jul 2017

Delegates from across the District presented a cheque to representatives from HMRI at the Delegates Meeting held at the East Cessnock Bowling Club on Friday 9 June 2017.

The District and the Mineworker’s Trust again made a joint donation of $100,000 to HMRI to continue the vital research associated with the project we have now sponsored for four years in a row.  The project aims to develop new treatments for metastatic prostate cancer, which we hope will offer great improvements in the treatment and prognosis of people who develop this type of prostate cancer.
