A Carnmoney woman has helped her colleagues raise a fantastic £18,585 for Friends of the Cancer Centre over the last year.
Jennifer Moore, who is the Territory Manager for Tennent’s NI, helped to raise the amazing sum of money along with employees of the company, who had selected Friends of the Cancer Centre to be their designated charity for the year.
Over a gruelling 12 month period the employees tackled a range sponsored activities which included a wax-athon, spin-athon, abseiling and 5K run to a Big Breakfast, treasure hunt and golf day.
Jennifer was delighted to hand over the £18,568 donation to the charity, which provides vital support to Northern Ireland’s regional centre for cancer care at the City Hospital in Belfast, as well as providing help for cancer patients and their families right across Northern Ireland.
“This is a good cause which had huge resonance with all of us at Tennent’s NI for most of us have someone within our family or know someone within our circle of friends who has been affected by cancer. Because we knew that the money we raised would help the charity’s vital work we all threw ourselves into support and we certainly lived up to our campaign’s theme to Make time for Friends,” Jennifer said.
Claire Hogarth from Friends of the Cancer Centre praised the fundraising team.
“The team at Tennent’s NI have been wonderful and we were completely overwhelmed by how they have really got behind the charity. I would like to thank them for the amazing sum of money they have raised as it will be used to fund our life-saving and life-changing projects in clinical care, patient comfort and care, and research,” she said.
