Let’s Do Just One Thing
22 June 2017
Action Cancer is delighted to launch a brand new fundraising initiative asking local sporting clubs and societies to do ‘just one thing’ to support the charity. The new campaign is sponsored by Podium 4 Sport, Linwoods and Clandeboye Yoghurt who each plan to do ‘just one thing’ of their own.
Recent international research highlights that 11 different types of cancers are attributed to lifestyle choices therefore this timely campaign is encouraging local sporting clubs to actively engage their local communities, families and friends to get together, do something active, and raise vital funds for Northern Ireland’s leading local cancer charity.
Rebecca Dalzell, Schools and Societies Fundraising Officer for Action Cancer commented, “We are asking local sporting clubs to do just one thing during their season in support of Action Cancer’s services. Anything from a friendly match, to a sponsored run or walk, or simply a bucket collection at the start of a game. Whether your season is just getting started or you are looking to the season ahead, it all goes a long way to helping local families who have been affected by cancer.”
Action Cancer were thrilled when they received the backing of three local businesses for the campaign. Rebecca continued, “To have the support of local organisations who each have a focus on encouraging a healthy diet and/or lifestyle is tremendous and really helps to boost the campaign. Linwoods, Clandeboye Yoghurt and Podium 4 Sport are businesses which see true value in encouraging a healthy lifestyle and to have them back the campaign to such an extent is just brilliant.”
