As The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity celebrates it’s 25th anniversary, they are asking people in Merseyside to get outdoors and hold a Big Birthday BBQ on May Bank Holiday weekend.
In a week where the news finally gives hope for a brighter 2021, it’s the perfect time to plan a get together with loved ones, while joining in with the charity’s big birthday celebrations and raising money for local people with cancer!
The Charity was formed in 1996, when The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre introduced a fund, for those patients, their families and our community who wanted to give something back for the incredible care it provides.
Today the Centre sees 36,000 patients every year, while donations to its charity help to improve facilities, fund groundbreaking research and develop new therapies which have shaped cancer care in our region.
Those signing up with receive a free Big BBQ pack, bursting with top barbecue tips, recipes, games and fundraising ideas along with how your donations will help to shape cancer care for the next 25 years and why there’s never been a better time to raise cash for your local cancer charity.
Katrina Bury, Head of Charity said:
“Almost all of our fundraising events were cancelled in 2020 and our charity income was impacted by the effects of the pandemic. As restrictions are lifted, so many of our supporters have told us they’re ready to get together safely to raise money again.
Of course, we are urging people to adhere to whatever government restrictions are still in place when they hold their Big Birthday BBQ, but we also hope that it’s a fabulous opportunity for people to see their loved ones, perhaps for the first time in a long time. We know that’s really something to celebrate.
Anybody can take part, whether it’s a barbecue for your bubble or your first social gathering, we hope that it’s a perfect way to get together and celebrate the lives of those who have survived cancer, remember lost loved ones, or just a great excuse to raise money while enjoying time outdoors.”
The Charity is asking those taking part to raise £25 or as much as they can to help support it’s work in the future.
