People from across Northern Ireland are being asked to become a superhero and Take on the Tower abseil down one of Northern Ireland’s most iconic and tallest buildings to raise money for Friends of the Cancer Centre on April 14-15, 2018.
This year, Warmflow has extended its support to the charity by sponsoring the event, meaning that even more of the money raised can be used to support local families affected by cancer.
Brian Beattie, Marketing Manager at Warmflow, said, “Warmflow have been supporting Friends of the Cancer Centre for a number of years and we are delighted to be involved with the Take on the Tower abseil. The superhero theme for this year’s event is a great idea and I would encourage people from across Northern Ireland to register and take on the challenge of abseiling down Northern Ireland’s 4th tallest building by completing a 190ft adrenaline filled descent of the tower block at Belfast City Hospital. All the money raised from the abseil will make a huge difference to Friends of the Cancer Centre.”
Friends of the Cancer Centre, based at the heart of the Cancer Centre at Belfast City Hospital, is one of the leading cancer charities in Northern Ireland working to support cancer patients and their families through key projects in the areas of clinical care, patient comforts, and research. Brian Beattie, Warmflow, and Claire Hogarth, Friends of the Cancer Centre, are calling on superheroes to Take on the Tower in aid of the charity. Friends of the Cancer Centre is committed to raising at least £5million over the next three years to fund on-going and new projects which will continue to support local cancer patients.
Claire Hogarth, Fundraising Manager at Friends of the Cancer Centre, said, “The striking yellow tower block of Belfast City Hospital sits right beside the Cancer Centre and is one of Northern Ireland’s most iconic buildings, so it is the perfect location for this event. We are delighted to have Warmflow on board as our event partner.”
Registration for the event is £20 per person and each participant is asked to raise a suggested minimum sponsorship of £150.
