Fundraising brunch for Friends of Cancer Centre on Friday

Friends of the Cancer Centre’s Dromore fundraising group is holding its annual brunch to raise vital funds for Friends of the Cancer Centre.

The group’s annual brunch will be held from 11am on Friday, April 17 at the First Presbyterian Non-Subscribing Church in Dromore. The group are calling on all local residents and visitors to pop in for some beautiful homemade delights, including sumptuous soups, scones and tasty treats. All money raised will be used to support local cancer patients and their families across Northern Ireland.

The Dromore fundraising group has been long-time supporters of Friends of the Cancer Centre, raising vital funds with events run in the local community. Elizabeth Rutherford from the group said:

“Our annual brunch has become a real highlight of the local social calendar and every year we are overwhelmed by the amount of support we receive for the event.

“We would like to invite the entire local community along to join us for some delicious homemade food, as well as have a good natter and laugh with a bunch of really great people.

As well as enjoying lots of lovely food, people will also be supporting an extremely worthwhile charity that does so much to support local people, many of them in our own community, who are affected by cancer.”

Friends of the Cancer Centre, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, is Northern Ireland’s leading cancer charity based right at the heart of the Cancer Centre, Belfast City Hospital. Friends of the Cancer Centre relies entirely on donations, and all money raised goes towards funding vital projects that have a real and lasting impact on patients and their families.
