Margaret Mitchell Grant Fund

Margaret Mitchell was a Novocastrian who worked for the Newcastle Herald and had a flair for investing. Margaret died of cancer in May 1993, aged 70, and among her many bequests was a generous and substantial contribution to the Mater's Oncology Unit. The Margaret Mitchell Grant Fund was established in 1994 in her honour, and enables small donations to the hospital to be pooled and used to support oncology research.
