Northern Ireland District of BB Partners with Cancer Fund for Children

Friday 9th September 2022

The Northern Ireland District of the Boys’ Brigade is pleased to announce that our charity partner for the 22/23 session for Anchors, Juniors, Company and Seniors is Cancer Fund for Children.

Cancer Fund for Children provides practical, social and emotional support to young people (0-24) diagnosed with cancer, as well as young people who have a parent diagnosed with cancer, and their families. A team of Cancer Support Specialists provide support on the hospital ward, as well as individual and group work support, allowing young people to develop confidence and gain practical skills to cope with the impact of cancer on their family. The group work programme, which includes residentials at Narnia Log Cabin in Newcastle, Co. Down, allows young people going through a similar experience to build friendships and make connections. The charity also provides support to parents with cancer, parents of children with cancer and parents who have been bereaved.

Cancer Fund for Children’s School and Youth Fundraiser Rebecca Oates will be available to liaise with BB Sections and/or Companies who wish to get involved and support the charity. Speaking about the partnership Rebecca said:

‘As the Schools and Youth Fundraiser within Cancer Fund for Children, I am so excited that BBNI have
chosen us as the Charity of the Year and cannot wait to work alongside them. I look forward to working with and meeting leaders and organisations across Northern Ireland in due course and planning how they might like to get involved.’

Programme packs will be available to download soon for all sections to enable our children and young people to learn about the work of Cancer Fund for Children and find out how they can support the charity.
