Marine In The Community want you to join them in standing up to cancer on Wednesday 13 October, where they will be hosting a fun-filled afternoon of entertainment at the Marine Travel Arena, Crosby.
Marine FC has chosen to support Cancer Research UK as its chosen charity and is working with its own charity, Marine In The Community, to help raise vital funds for research into cancer.
Marine In The Community has organised a charity tea party with a selection of Crosby’s best homemade cakes, live music from local artists, an auction, with such prizes as X and X. At the event will also be special guests St Mary’s Primary School Dance Group and an art display by the students of Merchant Taylors’. All proceeds from the charity tea party will be donated to Cancer Research UK.
Graeme Gardiner, Community Director at Marine FC, said:
“We are very excited to be putting on this event for our community, to not only raise money for a fantastic cause, but to bring the community back together after the last 18 months.
“It’ll be a great event and it’s open to everyone. So, if you want to help us stand up to cancer on Wednesday 13 October, come along and take part in our activities and enjoy the entertainment provided by our amazing local acts and our talented local school children.”
Chris Doyle, Relationship Manager for Cancer Research UK in the North West, said:
“I just want to say a huge thank you to Marine FC and Marine In The Community for supporting Cancer Research UK.
“One in two people in the UK will be diagnosed with cancer at some stage in their lives, but the good news is more people are surviving the disease now than ever before. Almost every way we raise money to fund our research was impacted by the pandemic, with our shops temporarily closed, and events cancelled.
“It is thanks to the dedication and commitment of our volunteers and supporters that we are able to fund our life-saving research. It will be a fantastic event.”
