Carson McDowell LLP partners with Cancer Fund for Children

  • Local NI business Carson McDowell has announced the start of a year-long partnership with local children's cancer charity Cancer Fund for Children.

    Belfast-based law firm Carson McDowell will be running a series of fund-raising events throughout the year to help raise money for charity. The firm has selected children's cancer charity Cancer Fund for Children as its official charity partner for the year, and will be running several events throughout 2019 and early 2020 to support it.

    Cancer Fund for Children is a local charity that aims to lessen the impact of a cancer diagnosis and treatment on families in Northern Ireland. It provides a range of support to cancer sufferers and their families, including practical support, emotional support, and free therapeutic short breaks for those who need it most.

    The charity provides support not just for the families of children diagnosed with cancer but also for children who have a parent diagnosed with the illness. It has a residential care centre in Newcastle, Co. Down, and also provides support directly in hospital wards and at home. Fundraising efforts from Carson McDowell will help to support all of these activities throughout Northern Ireland.

    Carson McDowell Partner and Head of the firm's charity committee, Jacqueline McAleese, commented on the partnership: "We are thrilled to be supporting Cancer Fund for Children this year and hope that funds raised and support provided by Carson McDowell staff will make a real difference to the lives of local children. We have some great charitable events planned for 2019/2020 so watch this space."

    Cancer Fund for Children’s Corporate Fundraiser Sarah Clements also added: "We are delighted to be partnering with Carson McDowell and we look forward to an exciting year ahead. As a local charity, we receive less than 0.5% of our funding from the government so we quite simply cannot provide essential services without the support of the local community and businesses like Carson McDowell. Their support will help us continue to connect, empower and strengthen local young people and families who are struggling to cope with the devastating impact of a cancer diagnosis."
