MTB are pleased to announce that they have chosen Friends of the Cancer Centre as our Charity of the Year partner for 2017
Friends of the Cancer Centre – ‘the heart of cancer care in Northern Ireland’ – focuses its work in three key areas – Clinical Care, Patient Comforts and Research – each one making a direct and positive impact to cancer patients and their families from right across Northern Ireland. Additional information about Friends of the Cancer Centre’s work can be found by visiting http://www.friendsofthecancercentre.com/
As the charity doesn’t receive any Government funding, the work of Friends of the Cancer Centre simply wouldn’t be possible without the support of local businesses and MTB are encouraging all of its staff to show their support this year by taking part in a challenge, a bake-off, dress down day or another activity of their choice – there’s something for everyone ! We also welcome donations from any of our clients who would be keen to support the charity.
Ana Wilkinson (Corporate Fundraising Manager at Friends of the Cancer Centre) explains: “Last year, Friends of the Cancer Centre invested over £1.4 million into local cancer services and has committed to funding projects costing £5 million over the next 5 years. We know that every penny raised tells a story and represents something, or someone, very special. That is why we promise that all donations to Friends of the Cancer Centre will be put to the best possible use and that for every donation of £1 the sum of 95p will be used to support patients and to invest in the future. We are delighted that MTB have chosen to join us as our Charity of the Year Partner”.
Our first event will be a “Paint MTB Red Day” on Tuesday 14th February when we will all be wearing something red and hold a love/heart/red-themed cake sale. All donations welcome and feel free to call in for a few treats if you are passing our door!!
MTB very much look forward to fundraising for Friends of the Cancer Centre. Watch this space for all sorts of activities throughout the year!
