Charity Fundraising for 2016

(Posted on 09/02/16)

Charity Fundraising for 2016UCML have been supporting charities for many years and last year decided we would nominate and vote for a local and a national charity to support for the forthcoming year. This year we are proud to announce our local charity is Wrexham Maelor Hospital Shooting Star Appeal. The mission of this charity is the relief of sickness by the provision and equipping of an integrated specialist cancer treatment facility, including a specific area dedicated to services for women, at Wrexham Maelor Hospital. The Shooting Star specialist cancer unit at the Wrexham Maelor Hospital opened in 2004 after a five-year funding campaign. It provides a specialist venue for out-patients and day care of people with cancer, and there is also a dedicated women’s clinic. Make-A-Wish is our chosen national charity. Make-A-Wish go above and beyond to grant very special wishes to very special children; their dreams made a reality at a time when they need it most. Because a child’s life shouldn’t be about illness, hospitals and diagnosis – it should be about wonder, joy and hope. Whether it’s starring in their own films, walking with dinosaurs, going on an amazing holiday, meeting a celebrity hero, or having a life-changing bedroom makeover; our wishes are varied, personal and, most importantly, magical. Please wish us success in our fundraising efforts this year for these two amazing charities!
