John Mulholland Motors has announced a new partnership with local charity, Friends of the Cancer Centre.

We are pledging to donate £40,000 in addition to other fundraising activity to help Friends of the Cancer Centre fund vital nursing hours, which supports thousands of local people every year.  In the year ahead we will donate £10 for every car sold and £2 for every service, as well as encouraging employees and customers to take part in the charity’s fundraising events.

Managing Director John Mulholland has a very personal reason for supporting Friends of the Cancer Centre after being diagnosed with kidney cancer in June 2018.  John has benefited from Friends of the Cancer Centre’s work first hand, particularly through the support of his clinical nurse specialist, who is funded by the charity.

Commenting on what motivated him to support Friends of the Cancer Centre, John said:

“I’m delighted to partner with Friends of the Cancer Centre and am fully committed to raising as much money as we can to support its vital work.

“When I was diagnosed with cancer it came as a complete shock, but I have been so well looked after by all those involved in my treatment.  I’m particularly thankful to Friends of the Cancer Centre as if it wasn’t for the charity my specialist nurse, Melanie wouldn’t be here to support me and my family.  By committing to donate at least £40,000 this year, we hope to fund at least 1,600 nursing hours which I know will make an incredible difference to so many people, just as it has to me.”

Local charity Friends of the Cancer Centre works to enhance the quality of patient care and support through its life-changing and life-saving work which includes funding additional nurses, supporting local research and providing practical support, such as financial grants, which can help alleviate some of the stresses which can come with diagnosis and treatment.  Friends of the Cancer Centre relies entirely on the generosity of the local community and all money donated stays in Northern Ireland, directly benefiting patients and their families.

Welcoming the new partnership, Colleen Shaw, chief executive of Friends of the Cancer Centre said:

“We are delighted to partner with John Mulholland Motors and we are really looking forward to working alongside its employees and customers.

“It costs just £25 to provide an hour of specialist nursing care from one of the charity’s specialist  nurses and as well as providing one to one support for the patient and their family, our nurses also help reduce the waiting lists for other people waiting to see consultants. This means enhanced care for hundreds of people.”
