ABW Nominated Charity of the Year - 2024

Each year, the members of Ayrshire Business Women choose a Nominated Charity from the local area to receive the proceeds from donations and local fundraising initiatives.

 

The Nominated Charity for 2024 is Ayrshire Cancer Support, for a second year running.


 

Ayrshire Business Women members had the privilege of visiting Ayrshire Cancer Support’s Kilmarnock drop in centre in September 2023, where we were able to see the superb facilities which offer exemplary care for cancer patients, survivors and their families.

 

 

Ayrshire Cancer Support’s Head of Fundraising, Nicola George, said:

 

“As Ayrshire Business Women’s Charity Partner in 2023, we were thrilled to receive a cheque for £6,150 from your fundraising activities throughout the year and match funding from Vodafone.

 

We are truly humbled to be nominated again as your charity partner for 2024 where we look forward to working closely with the committee and all members to generate and implement new and fruitful fundraising ideas.

 

We at Ayrshire Cancer Support provide a range of cancer support services for children, young people and adults affected by or bereaved from cancer across Ayrshire. As Ayrshire’s leading cancer support charity, founded in 1982, all funds raised go towards providing free transport to patients receiving cancer treatment at hospital, free professional counselling and a range of free complementary therapies to reduce the symptoms and anxiety of a cancer diagnosis. We also offer palliative support and bereavement counselling as well as a range of peer support groups. If you need support, drop into our Kilmarnock centre, visit our website or telephone us.
