FUNDRAISING will be on the bill at Walsh’s Hotel on Friday (March 1) as the Maghera Local Committee for Cancer Research UK once more dishes up their amazing Big Breakfast!
The committee want this year to be their biggest yet, so please come along from 7am to 2pm and support this worthwhile cause.
Committee Chairperson Violet Phillips said: “We would like to thank everyone for their ongoing support and generosity. We raised £11,374 at the 2012 Big Breakfast. We are continually overwhelmed by the generosity from the local community and our kind food sponsors. Without which we could not raise as much profit for the Charity”.
Glenda Milligan Cancer Research UK’s Area Volunteer Manager for the West said: “Cancer Research UK has made enormous progress in the fight against cancer and continues to do so. However, we have only been able to do this thanks to the hard-work and commitment of volunteers like the Maghera fundraising committee; and their local supporters without whom we would not be able to fund our vital research.
“Cancer Research UK currently spends over £2million each year in Northern Ireland alone on ground breaking research. This vital research would not be possible without the support of people like the Maghera community. We are extremely grateful to everyone who supports this fantastic event!”.
Cancer Research UK receives NO Government funding, so they rely on the generosity of the public to fund their live saving work across the UK, which includes the Belfast Cancer Research UK Centre of Excellence.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, providing a boost of nutrients so please come along on the 1st of March between 7am to 2pm, make a donation to Cancer Research UK and enjoy a hearty start to your day!
Remember, diet influences the risk of several types of cancer, including cancers of the bowel, stomach, mouth, food pipe and breast. Eating a healthy, balanced diet can help to reduce the risk of cancer, as well as other conditions such as heart disease and diabetes.
