Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council Mayor’s Charity
We’re absolutely delighted that Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council’s newly elected Mayor, Councillor Uel Mackin, has announced has chosen Cancer Fund for Children as his official Mayoral Charity for his year in Office.
During the year, the Mayor’s Office will be organising and hosting a wide range of fundraising events and is hopeful that local residents and businesses will consider supporting us for any fundraising events organised within the local community.
Supporting Local Communities
Speaking about why he selected Cancer Fund for Children, Council Uel Mackin said:
“Cancer has affected nearly all extended families in Northern Ireland and while it is a diagnosis we all dread, the added shock and cruelty of a cancer diagnosis for a child is impossible for us to imagine and I wanted to use my time as Mayor to do whatever I can to make that pain even a little more bearable.
I have been continually amazed and humbled by the ongoing generosity of the people of Lisburn & Castlereagh and I thank them for it and hope that through working with Cancer Fund For Children we can all dig deep into our pockets and make a real difference to the lives of young people affected by cancer and their families, here in Northern Ireland.”
