The sun shined down on World Cancer Day at Zenia Boulevard and lots of people attended throughout the day, helping to raise a fantastic 1,784.16€. Thanks to Zenia Boulevard management for the generous donation of the iris plants and for letting us, yet again, take over the shopping centre for the afternoon. Big thank you to Tony of Sunshine FM for being with us all day, Stevie Spit for comparing and singing, Rob Sweeney, David Williams and his Rod Stewart tribute, Suzy.G and Jaz, The 2 Ton Spice Girls tribute, Janelle Gaskell, Nikki.G, Kylie Burgazzi and saxophonist Stuart Sinclair, Just Ollie, Kevin Tyler and Luis Blacknight as Flashback and Totally Dance with their fantastic troop of 2-16 year old girls and boys. Lots of appointments were taken and queries answered which is always our greatest aim at these fundraisers. And thank you to all the Pink Ladies and Panthers for giving up their time to make events like these possible.
We have a new total for World Cancer Day!! After the event on the 4th of February, there were boxes of Iris plants left, which Zenia Boulevard had kindly donated. Wanting to gain full potential of such a generous gift, the following week some of our very dedicated volunteers camped outside Primark and distributed this beautiful plants in exchange of a small donation. All of the Iris plants found a home and our total reached a truly amazing €3,096.90!!! That is a record for us and wouldn’t be possible without you, the very generous public! Thank you to each and every single one of you and thank you to all of our hard working volunteers.
