Media Release: 2017 MHF Inspirational Calendar for Christmas
10th November 2016
The Mark Hughes Foundation (MHF) along with Jennings Print Group, are proud to release a 2017 Inspirational Newcastle calendar for sale for the second year.
Proving very popular last year, and just in time for Christmas as a perfect stocking filler, the calendar features pictures from local photographers including Darren Kidd, Luke Owen and Grant Sproule, showcasing the beautiful Newcastle, Hunter Valley, Lake Macquarie and Mid North Coast landscape. Inspirational quotes from Mark Hughes and other sources are also featured throughout the calendar, along with photos from the work MHF has been doing in the community this year.
“Since my diagnosis, I have found out first hand just how many people are affected by brain cancer” said Mark Hughes from the Mark Hughes Foundation.
“It is the biggest cancer killer of adults under 40 and children under 10, and we need answers. Through your support of purchasing a calendar this Christmas, it is a way to raise funds and help find a better outcome for patients and their families. Every dollar goes straight into Brain Cancer research at Hunter Medical Research Institute”
“With Christmas around the corner, we thought this is a great way for families to fill their stockings, while also supporting MHF at the same time. The calendar is only $10 with 100% of the proceeds going to MHF, and we can’t thank Jennings Print Group enough for producing the calendar and their on going support of MHF”.
The calendar is being officially launched at a fundraiser for MHF this Friday 11th November, at a Golf Day at Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley.
Mark was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2013.
Following this, the Mark Hughes Foundation (MHF) was formed to heighten awareness and raise much needed funds to promote research into this terrible disease.
In Australia, someone is diagnosed with brain cancer every five hours, yet we still know very little about the disease.
Calendars can be purchased by clicking here, and MHF Volunteers will be selling at Westfield Kotara out the front of Coles on 12th November. They will also be available in store at Newcastle Knights Supporter Store, Paul Bros Dry Cleaners Merewether and from Coles at Kurri Kurri from Monday 14th November.
