We are holding our 37th Annual Show and Artisan Fair at the Bangor Aurora Aquatic & Leisure Complex on 18th November 2017, proudly supported by Ards and North Down Borough Council.
As usual, we choose a charity to support, as well as a local Cat Rescue. This year we have chosen NI Children’s Cancer Unit as our charity and Nicola’s Rescue Cats and Kittens as our rescue.
The Children’s Cancer Unit Charity exists solely to support the work of the Children’s Cancer and Haematology Unit at the Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children and their families.
The Children’s Cancer Unit Charity (formerly known as the Northern Ireland Children’s Cancer Unit Fund) is a registered charity and depends on donations from supporters. All the funds raised are used to care for children in the province who suffer with all forms of childhood cancer and selected benign haematological conditions. Administration costs are kept to the bare minimum.
The Children’s Cancer and Haematology Unit cares for children up to the age of 16 with cancer and blood disorders. Around 50 new patients with malignant conditions are seen every year. A similar number are assessed for benign conditions such as sickle cell and low blood count.
The Unit is part of an international network of organisations involved in development care and treatment of children and young people with cancer and blood disorders. It has been an integral part of the United Kingdom’s Children’s Cancer and Leukaemia Group since 1980. This global network has contributed substantially to the improved survival rates of children. If treated in time, over 80% of children survive cancer and 90% survive blood disorders such as leukaemia.
