Action Cancer is delighted to have benefited from donations exceeding £26,000 from Snack 4 Charity during a fundraising partnership whereby bags of sweets and snacks are placed in workplace reception and canteens - including John Mc Elderry Motors and Tractors Ltd, Joey Dunlop Leisure Centre & Fyfes in Ballymoney.

50% of the net profit goes direct to the charity’s breast screening, health promotion, counselling and complementary therapy services.

Owners of Snack 4 Charity husband and wife team James and Alanna Connolly are delighted with the success that has been achieved for such a worthy local cause. Alanna said: “I left the construction industry almost four years ago to establish Snack 4 Charity and we’ve been able to grow the business and hence the support for Action Cancer with hard work and perseverance. We’re particularly proud with developments over this past 12 to 18 months which has resulted in an average monthly donation to Action Cancer of £1,000. It’s satisfying to know that this means we are funding screening each month of another 12 women.”

Stacey Graham, Corporate Fundraising Assistant with the charity said, “The partnership with Snack 4 Charity means that Action Cancer is able to deliver more of our life saving prevention, detection and support services in communities across Northern Ireland and we would like to thank them for all of their ongoing support. If your workplace would like a snack box, please call us on 028 9080 3343.”
