About the Charity

Members of the Cancer Challenge Singers' Choir with the new Charity banner designed to celebrate the Charity having raised £1 million

Run by volunteers NPTCC is a local charity that helps local people. Our aim is to help with the prevention, early diagnosis and treatment of all types of cancer. We raise funds to purchase equipment for local hospitals in Neath Port Talbot, Singleton, Morriston and Bridgend.

A Management Committee comprised entirely of volunteers administers the Charity, and fixed overheads are minimal. The Charity does not pay any salaries, wages or honoraria, and has no assets that incur maintenance costs, thus maximizing the funds available to meet its objectives.

Since its beginnings NPTCC has raised over £1 million to purchase vitally needed equipment for hospitals in the local area. Each request for help is different so we consult with the hospitals to find out what is needed, a target is then set, and when we have the funds in place a purchase is made. The equipment is then presented to the hospital.

The Charity celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2017

In 2006 Neath Port Talbot Cancer Challenge was presented with the Queens Award, the highest award given to local volunteer groups across the UK, to recognise outstanding work done in their own communities. It was created in 2002 to celebrate the anniversary of the Queen's coronation. It is the MBE for volunteer groups across the UK, to recognise outstanding work done in their own communities. It was created in 2002 to celebrate the anniversary of the Queen's coronation. It is the MBE for volunteer groups.

Book Sales at the Gnoll

We are very grateful to all those who purchase or donate books for the Charity at the Gnoll Park Visitor Centre in Neath. Book sales raised £989 during 2019 but unfortunately it has not been possible to continue during this very difficult year. We hope for better times in 2021!
