Boys’ Brigade NI support children impacted by cancer

Tuesday 25th October 2022

To mark the new Charity partnership with Cancer Fund for Children for the 2022/2023 session, Lisa Keys Director for NI and members from 1st Slieve Donard Boys’ Brigade visited Daisy Lodge on Thursday 20 October 2022.

Throughout this session, all BB companies in NI will be encouraged to get involved and hold their own fundraising events, whether that be a coffee morning, sponsored walk or other challenges.

Speaking on this, Lisa Keys, Director of Boys’ Brigade NI said:

‘Sadly, most of us have been impacted in some way by cancer in our families. We are delighted that children and young people in Boys’ Brigade in NI will be able to work together to raise money to support other children and young people through the work of Cancer Fund for Children.”

Referring to the charity’s therapeutic short break centre, Daisy Lodge, Lisa said:

“Daisy Lodge is an amazing facility in Newcastle and is just one of the ways in which the charity supports families, children and young people who are facing a journey with cancer. We hope that the efforts of Boys’ Brigade in NI will play some small part in helping support Cancer Fund for Children’s mission that no child faces cancer alone.’ 

Rebecca Oates, Schools and Youth Fundraiser for Cancer Fund for Children said:

“We are delighted to be chosen as charity partner of the year by Boys’ Brigade NI and are excited by their passion and commitment to fundraising for our vital services. We can’t wait to support BB Companies across Northern Ireland as they embark on their fundraising adventures.”

All BB Companies that take part in fundraising activities will be provided with activity packs and videos and receive a visit from Schools and Youth Fundraiser Rebecca Oates, who will explain the impact their efforts have on the work of the charity.

BB has a JustGiving page here where anyone can donate to the Charity.  Individual Companies also have the option of setting up their own JustGiving Page.  All monies raised will be added to the main total for Boys’ Brigade NI.
