Last night we were absolutely delighted to announce that we have been awarded £10,000 from The National Lottery Community Fund Northern Ireland
This funding has allowed us to launch our “Catch It Early” campaign for oesophageal and gastric cancer awareness. The campaign will raise awareness across NI and hopefully SAVE LIVES!
A huge thank you to all of our guests and key speakers who made last night possible.
Keep an eye / ear out across digital media and radio throughout June and support us by joining in on one of our upcoming events.
