Despite being in the midst of a worldwide pandemic in June 2020 Resurgam decided to press ahead with their plans to remember their good friend Ivan Davis by naming Friends of the Cancer Centre their official charity of the year for 2020/21. It was felt that many charities fundraising efforts would be adversely affected by Covid-19 however we believed we could still raise a significant amount by being imaginative with our fundraising activities whilst sticking to the various government restrictions at the given time.
Adrian Bird Trust Director said, “We are delighted to hand over the incredible amount of £8,100 which was raised via a number of events including a quiz, mountain climb and our first ever golf day. It also makes it that bit more special that Betty and Gareth were able to join us at our official handover to Friends of the Cancer Centre as Ivan was a great friend to many of us in Community”
Ana Wilkinson, Corporate Fundraising Manager from Friends of the Cancer Centre said, “We are incredibly grateful to Resurgam and all those people who helped raise this fantastic amount. All the money donated will directly benefit cancer patients in Northern Ireland and their families. Friends of the Cancer Centre has been dedicated to enhancing the quality of patient care for over 35 years now and we simply could not do this without the support of organisations like Resurgam and people in the local community”
Everyone at the Resurgam Trust would like to thank everyone who either helped organise or supported us at any of the many events throughout the year.
