By raising the cash, the Times can now fund new nurse Suzie Taylor to work at the Hereford Haven centre for the next two years.
The centre offers services and support for women diagnosed with breast cancer.
Clive Joyce, who was Times editor during the appeal, said: “It has been a fantastic effort by the Herefordshire community.
“We have been stunned by the swift and overwhelming support of organisations and people from all walks of life.
“Reaching the target so quickly says so much about the generous nature of this county. All contributions have been important to us, and have made a real difference.”
Clive, who retired from the regional press on 31 December, added: “Recent years have been financially difficult for many people, but their willingness to help others has never wavered.”
Helen Crilly, breast care nurse and Haven manager, said: “We are very excited at reaching the total as quickly as we did.
“It is fantastic news – we just want to thank all of the general public for their help and support and the Hereford Times for backing us on this.”
