Since first opening its doors to the public in March 2010, Charis has helped in excess of 2,300 people with their cancer journey.
The charity has now been shortlisted in the People’s Millions TV Contest and with your help you it could win a fantastic £50k.
Imelda McGucken, Director of Charis Cancer Centre explains the opportunity and how local people can support the ‘New Ways of Thinking’ project to secure vital funding:
“It is a fantastic achievement for Charis Cancer Centre to have been shortlisted in the People’s Millions TV Contest. Though now that we’ve managed to reach this stage, we really need the support of local people to help us successfully compete and secure vital funding for a project that is focused on helping local people who are coping with cancer.
“For those who may not be familiar with this fund or the process that goes with it, two projects are identified to go head to head every night for three nights from Monday 24 November. The Charis Cancer Centre ‘New Ways of Thinking’ initiative will feature in the first broadcast on Monday 24 November alongside the ‘Build a Beach’ Project which is linked to the Titanic Foundation.
“A short video will be shown about Charis Cancer Centre and the ‘Build a Beach’ project. The public will then be asked to vote for the project that they would like to receive the award via a phone vote. The number that people will be asked to ring will be featured in the TV programme but it will also be published in the Mirror on Monday 24 November.
“Votes are counted and then the results will be announced the following day.”
