Diners are being urged to put their money where their mouth is this festive season and support local families affected by cancer.
Cancer Fund for Children is once again running its Dine and Donate campaign whereby diners at selected restaurants can support the charity easily by adding a few pounds on to their bill after they finish their meal.
This year participating restaurants include Deanes EIPIC, Deanes at Queens, Deanes Deli, Deane & Decano, Holohan’s Pantry, Holohan’s on the Barge, Balloo House, The Parson’s Nose, The Poacher’s Pocket, Brunel’s Restaurant, The Maghera Inn, and Bistro Este.
Money raised via the initiative will enable the charity to continue providing practical, emotional and financial support for local families whose lives have been devastated by cancer.
Cancer Fund for Children’s Corporate Fundraiser Sorcha MacLaimhin said:
“For families living with a cancer diagnosis Christmas can exaggerate negative issues they are already dealing with such as isolation, loneliness and financial strain. Cancer Fund for Children understands this and strives to support families through providing practical, financial and therapeutic support to help them cope with the impact cancer has on their lives.
“We receive less than one per cent of our income from the government. Without campaigns like Dine and Donate, and support from people like Michael, we would never be able to provide these vital support services so that families in Northern Ireland don’t have to face cancer alone.”
