As temperatures dip this festive season, cosy up in a Christmas Jumper and help raise funds for local kids living with cancer. Cancer Fund for Children is urging local people to embrace the Christmas magic, leave their shirts and ties in the wardrobe and pull on the cosiest, cheesiest Christmas jumper they can find. Gather up colleagues or classmates and take part in the charity’s fun ‘All Wrapped Up’ campaign. By wrapping up in a Christmas jumper, people will help the charity deliver its range of “wrap-around” specialist services for local children living with cancer from the point of diagnosis and treatment through to remission and sadly, in some cases bereavement. Cancer Fund for Children’s Natasha Walsh explained, “We are there at every stage of the cancer journey. We offer financial grants, one to one support sessions and therapeutic short breaks. This December,with your help, we can continue to be there.” Georgina McKee from County Down, whose family received support from the charity after her little son Eoghan was diagnosed with cancer, explained why this help was so vital. “During Eoghan’s cancer journey we enjoyed a therapeutic short break. It was like a sanctuary, a safe haven away from the gruelling routine of hospital. We got chatting to others and gained a lot from meeting families who understood the challenges and fears of nursing a child with cancer. “The staff were amazing and looked after us so well. The food was delicious; it was like eating out every night. People don’t realise how much a place like that is needed until it happens to them,” she added. To sign up to the super cosy event, which is kindly sponsored by Bangor Fuels, contact Alex on 028 9080 5599 or email For more information log on to or visit Facebook: @CancerFundChildren and Twitter: @NICancerFund
