Dry July Grant for Waikato Regional Cancer Centre

We’re delighted to announce the 2015 recipient of the Dry July NZ Trust Grant Program. 

Waikato Regional Cancer Centre will use funds to install a sky ceiling in the centre’s linear accelerator room, purchase a uMagic massage chair for patients to use while waiting for treatment (pictured), and a PlayStation 4 system for the centre’s oncology lounge.

As an additional option to nominating a beneficiary at sign-up, in 2015, DJs were invited for the first time to fundraise for the Dry July NZ Trust, with money raised being allocated to the Grant Program. Over 450 DJs chose this option raising over $36,000. 

The Dry July NZ Trust assists cancer support organisations by providing funds to implement projects and programs aimed at improving the wellbeing of cancer patients, their families and carers. Examples of projects funded include entertainment systems, transportation to treatment, information resources, and improving waiting and treatment area facilities.

The Dry July NZ Trust will again be raising funds for the Grant Program in 2016 with applications beginning in September. For further information about the Grant Program in 2016 please contact us at [email protected]
