Join Team Friends this World Cancer Day
Tuesday, 24 January 2017
On Saturday, 4th February people around the world will come together to show their support for people affected by cancer on World Cancer Day.
We are calling on people across Northern Ireland to get involved to show their support for cancer patients and their families in Northern Ireland by buying a Friends of the Cancer Centre wristband and wearing it with pride on World Cancer Day. Not only will you be showing your support for local patients, but all money donated from the price of a wristband will go towards our life- saving and life- changing work in Northern Ireland.

How your support can make a difference
Wearing a wristband will not only show the world that you support Friends of the Cancer Centre and our patients, but money donated from the cost of a wristband will also support our vital work which directly benefits thousands of people across Northern Ireland.
The power of Team Friends
Every person and every wristband has the power to make a big difference to our work. The more people who get behind us this World Cancer Day the more we can do to make sure cancer patients have the support they need when they need it most. Check out just how big a difference your wristband can make:
1 wristband = could buy 5 cups of tea or coffee for patients waiting for treatment at the Cancer Centre's Bridgewater Suite
5 wristbands = could go towards supporting a cancer patient financially through Friends of the Cancer Centre’s Grant Programme
10 wristbands = could play a vital part in local research and help support the latest developments in cancer treatment
Get your family and friends involved
Every team needs lots people so why not get your family, friends, colleagues or club to get involved and join Team Friends too! When ordering your wristband just amend the quantity you would like in PayPal and we'll send you out as many as you need.
Share your support
When you receive your wristband make sure you share your support and join the global movement by taking a picture of your wristband and sharing it online.
