The charity’s Take on the Tower abseil takes place on Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th April and once again, local home heating company 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 Engineering Company Ltd, said, “Warmflow has 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. 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. Friends of the Cancer Centre is currently funding 34 additional staff in the Cancer Centre, including doctors, nurses and researchers and the charity is committed to raising at least £5 million 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, added, “This will be our 5th Take on the Tower Abseil and this year we are delighted to have Warmflow on board as our event sponsor. Registration for the event is £20 per person and each participant is asked to raise a suggested minimum sponsorship of £150. Participants must be over 14 years of age or over.
