Peter MacCallum Cancer Foundation
Each day families Australia wide fight a cancer battle, and each day the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre team strive to provide the best research and cancer care. For a number of years now Vectron has been supporting Peter Mac as a Founding Patron of the Peter Mac Endowment Fund. This fund provides perpetual income to fund innovative research projects, state-of-the-art equipment and other cutting-edge programs. We value the research work they carry out and believe it’s up to all corporations to support the endeavours of organisations like Peter Mac.
Earlier this year Vectron attended a presentation by Prof. Joseph Trapani Executive Director, Cancer Research on the new state of the art centre where their 65 year history of caring for our community has been transformed into an integrated research, treatment and education centre. The new centre combines the care of people effected by cancer and the globally renowned ground-breaking research centre.

Cancer Council’s Biggest Morning Tea 2016
The Vectron team put together a rather impressive spread to raise funds for the Cancer Council. We hope to host an even bigger Morning Tea in 2017 as we continue to support the fight against Cancer.
Vectron teams participated in Steptember 2016 to raise incredibly important funds to support people living with cerebral palsy (CP) right across Australia. Vectron also donated a % from consumables sales in September towards the cause.
