JMK Solicitors names Cancer Fund for Children as 2020 charity partner
Personal injury and road traffic accident specialist firm JMK Solicitors has named Cancer Fund for Children as its charity partner for 2020.
The charity provides practical and emotional support to young people up to 24 years old who have been diagnosed with cancer, as well as young people who have a parent diagnosed with cancer.
It offers a range of individual, sibling and group support alongside bereavement support and short breaks at its therapeutic short break centre, Daisy Lodge in Newcastle, Co Down.
Managing director Maurece Hutchinson said: “Each year, our staff nominate two charities to support for the whole year. This year we wanted to choose one charity to really concentrate our efforts and raise as much money as possible to a cause that’s close to our employees’ hearts.
“After two rounds of voting, we are delighted to announce that the charity with the most votes and therefore our chosen charity of the year is Cancer Fund for Children.
“We are committed to raising much needed funds through a series of events planned throughout the year such as the Belfast Marathon, Big Breakfasts and Dress Down days.
“We look forward to the year ahead and working closely with Cancer Fund for Children to support the children and their families when they need it most.”
Alex Murdock, corporate fundraiser at Cancer Fund for Children, said: “Cancer Fund for Children are thrilled to welcome the team at JMK Solicitors as our new charity partner for 2020.
“I am really looking forward to building a relationship with JMK Solicitors, that will help us continue ensuring no family has to face cancer alone as well as ensuring their employees have the best possible experience through their fundraising and volunteering activities.
“With lots of exciting events already in the pipeline and lots of enthusiastic staff ready to get into the fundraising spirit, we know it will be a fantastic year for everyone that will make sure Cancer Fund for Children can continue to be there for families when they are most needed.”
