Bringing families together for life-saving cancer research

Sunday, 10th September 2017 | General | 0 comments

A group of fundraisers have raised over £1,500 for vital cancer research projects in Merseyside.

The Blackjack and Bowtie fundraising group have been organising fundraisisng events for North West Cancer Research for the past 11 years. Their dedication and hard work has raised over £60,000 which is funding numerous cancer research projects.

On the August bank holiday weekend they held their very first Charity Family Fun Day. More than 350 people enjoyed a day of family-friendly activities, including:

  • go-karting,
  • obsticle courses,
  • face painting, 
  • beat the goalie and much more.

Guests also enjoyed entertainment from a local DJ, as well as stalls, food and drink.

The family fun day was so successful that the fundraisers are already considering holding another next year.

Annie Henderson, Blackjack and Bowtie member:

"This year we wanted to do something different."

"Many of our regular guests who attend our fundraisisng events have families, so we thought it would be nice to hold an event the children can attend too."

"All the fundraising group members are overwhelmed by the turnout and the amount raised."

The Blackjack and Bowtie fundraising committee are one of many who help North West Cancer Research fund vital research into the cancers that affect us locally.
