Welcome to the Hawke's Bay branch of Cystic Fibrosis New Zealand. The Hawke's Bay branch is widely spread from Gisborne to Dannevirke. We’re a proactive group trying to make life for families impacted by CF a lot easier.

The Hawkes Bay branch is an active branch with fundraising events each year to raise the funds required to support the people with CF and their families in our region. We are always looking for new volunteers to join our group and fresh ideas for fundraising and creating awareness of Cystic Fibrosis.
We meet throughout the year, sometimes to have a committee meeting and other times just to catch up and discuss fundraising ideas. Please get in touch if you are interested in learning more about the HB Branch or would like to organise a fundraising event in Hawkes Bay.Get in touch
Life for people with CF is a daily struggle for survival, copious medication, physiotherapy and frequent hospitalisations. Most people with CF and their families will tell you apart from the obvious dream of a cure, their dearest wish is most often simply for a ‘normal’ life. As a branch, we try and make the everyday easier, by providing a number of support services to people with CF and their families.
We aim to meet on the 3rd Thursday of each month throughout the year. If you would like to attend please get in touch with us.
Our committee is made up of people with a connection to cystic fibrosis. We have parents, grandparents and spouses of PWCF and medical staff, who all get involved with our branch. We would love to meet other people who are interested in cystic fibrosis (you don't have to have a personal connection!) and are keen to help with fundraising efforts.Find out more
