Become a regular donor
Friends of the Cancer Centre relies entirely on donations from our wonderful supporters and regular donations play a really important part in enabling us to support people with cancer now, and help the charity plan for the future. Your support could help someone like Gordon (pictured on the left with his wife) who was diagnosed with cancer in 2016.
“The support that Friends of the Cancer Centre provides, not only through funding posts like my nurse, Emma’s, but through providing everything from a free cup of tea to funding vital equipment, is invaluable. Each time you make a donation to the charity, you are being a friend and helping to support someone just like me. Thank you.” - Gordon aged 70, Belfast.
Your regular gift of £5 per month could pay for a welcoming cup of tea or coffee for 21 people every month when they attend for treatment. Alternatively:
- £5 per month could pay for 2 hours of a Friends of the Cancer Centre Clinical Nurse Specialist
- £10 per month could help support a cancer patient financially through Friends of the Cancer Centre’s Grant Programme
- £25 per month could support local research, to give patients in Northern Ireland the latest developments in cancer treatment.
There are lots of ways you can make a regular, monthly donation to the charity and every penny has the power to help thousands of people affected by cancer across Northern Ireland. Click here to make a regular gift via JustGiving, standing order or payroll giving. Or call Amy on (028) 9069 9393 for more information.
Celebrate special days in special ways
Giving in celebration is a simple, personal and uniquely thoughtful way to mark special days in special ways.
At the moment, many of us are not able to celebrate special occasions with friends and family. So, whether you are having a quiet celebration, planning a virtual get together or waiting for your big bash, perhaps you will consider sharing your special day with Friends of the Cancer Centre?
It is really simple and by asking friends and family to make a donation to Friends of the Cancer Centre, together you can give a really special gift, the gift of care to a local cancer patient. You may wish to set up a Facebook birthday fundraiser or Just Giving page, to let everyone know how to get involved. Every donation will make a difference and for example, just £25 could provide one hour of nursing care, from one of the charity’s team of 14 specialist nurses.
Or if you would like to give one of the charity's virtual gifts, they range from £5 for an activity pack for a child to £200 to help provide financial support for a family. You can purchase a virtual gift here.
To find out how we can help you mark your special occasion, please get in touch on 028 9069 9393 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Donations in lieu of flowers
Losing a loved one is an incredibly difficult time and the loss can have a devastating effect on the lives of those left behind.
During this life-changing time, many people find the strength and kindness to use their loss to support other people and other families in similar situations, by making a donation in lieu of flowers.
If you would like to make a donation in lieu of flowers you can donate directly to us, or your funeral director will be able to look after the arrangements on your behalf. An alternative option, is to give family and friends the opportunity to make their donations remotely, via a JustGiving 'In Memory' page. You can find out more here https://www.justgiving.com/fcc/raisemoney
At this time, when the charity's office is closed due to Coronavirus restrictions, our team are working remotely, so please do not hesitate to contact Ana on 07775688291 if you require any further information.
Everybody loves payday, but did you know that your pay has the power to support local cancer patients? Payroll Giving, also known as Give as you Earn, gives you the chance to make a regular donation directly to us through your salary. It’s a great way to support our work as your donation is made before any tax deductions, which means that you pay less and the taxman makes up the difference. For example, if you want to give a regular gift of £10, only £8 will be deducted from your salary each month and the government makes up the remaining £2.
Getting set up couldn’t be easier, just follow these three simple steps:
Find out if your employer operates the Payroll Giving/ Give as You Earn scheme by contacting your payroll department.
If they do, simply click here, complete the online form and submit. Once the form has been processed, Payroll Giving in Action will forward a copy to your employer who will then arrange for your donation to be deducted from your next available salary.
If your employer doesn’t currently operate the scheme, just give us a call on 028 9069 9393 and we can advise on other ways you can support us through regular giving.
