Citywing has chosen Manx Cancer Help as its nominated charity for 2014.
The charity recently celebrated its 30th anniversary, and Citywing has provided it with 24 return tickets to use for fundraising during the year on its routes from the island to Blackpool, Belfast, Gloucester and Newcastle.
Managing director David Buck said: ‘This is a very dedicated and worthwhile local charity, and one that we are honoured to work alongside to raise money for, and awareness of, the life-changing services they provide. In addition to 24 return tickets we’ll also be calling on our partners for help with some fundraising favourites, including the famous sponsored plane pull event.’
Ally Martin, fundraising events co-ordinator at Manx Cancer Help, said: ‘We are so pleased to be working with Citywing as their nominated charity for 2014. Funds raised help to provide support and specialist psychological services for anybody whose life has been affected by cancer, as well as a safe haven for patients and their loved ones at our drop-in centre in Cronkbourne.
‘Manx Cancer Help’s services are increasingly relied upon and we are always aiming to provide as much as care as we can, and in as many ways as possible.
‘Fundraising is vital for any charity, and Citywing’s generous support will be a fantastic help in ensuring that we can continue to provide our services to those in need.’
