Ready, Set, Go for Eddie Irvine Sports Charity Partnership
Eddie Irvine Sports Choose Cancer Fund for Children As 2018 Charity Partner
Eddie Irvine Sports, which is owned by Formula 1 racing legend Eddie Irvine, has nominated local children’s cancer charity, Cancer Fund for Children as its charity partner for 2018.
Over the next year, the family-run sports centre in Bangor will get involved in a range of fundraising events and activities to support the charity, who provide practical, emotional and financial support to children aged 0-24 living with cancer, and their families.
As well as planning a Golf Day on 25th May, the team at Eddie Irvine Sports have already put pedal to the metal, by holding a Spinathon earlier this month. Plans are also underway to decorate the go-kart track in honour of the charity’s brand colours, including their very own ‘Daisy Corner’.
Speaking about the new partnership, Thomas Fegan, Centre Director, Eddie Irvine Sports said:
“Eddie Irvine Sports are delighted to have partnered with Cancer Fund for Children as our 2018 charity of the year. We welcome hundreds of thousands of children to enjoy our activities each and every year, so it is a real pleasure and honour to support a charity that offers so much support to children going through a difficult time, to help them cope with the impact of their cancer diagnosis. We are genuinely committed do whatever we can to support such a worthwhile cause.”
Matthew Allen, our Corporate Fundraiser added:
“It’s fantastic that Eddie Irvine Sports have pledged their support for Cancer Fund for Children. As a local charity, we receive less than 0.5% of our funding from the government, so really rely on the support of local businesses like this to help fund our vital services for children with cancer. I’m looking forward to working with Eddie Irvine Sports over the next year, and wish them all the best of luck with their fundraising.”
