PRM Group, one of Ireland’s largest Independent Chilled and Frozen Food Sales and Distribution companies, has chosen Cancer Fund for Children as their charity partner for 2016/17.
The Lisburn based company which was founded by Philip and Lynne Morrow in 1998 has for a number of years treated families supported by Cancer Fund for Children to trips to see Disney on Ice in their Corporate Box at the SSE Arena, in conjunction with the Rotary Club of Lisburn.
This generosity provided families who might not otherwise have had the chance to attend this magical event the opportunity to spend quality time together. A parent of Thomas, a young boy from Lisburn who recently attended Disney on Ice, said: “I just wanted to pass on all our thanks to PRM for the lovely trip we had to the SSE Arena.
“We had a brilliant time; the children were totally enthralled, especially Thomas who was riveted to the performance and clapped, shouted and cheered like a good’un.
“It was lovely to meet our hosts – they were very good to us and we were very well looked after - we certainly didn’t leave hungry.
“It was a total surprise to be invited along and we had a lot of fun.
“The timing was great as Thomas’s treatment officially finishes soon; we’re obviously looking forward to that, but also a bit anxious so it was nice to be able to put it to the side and just have good fun with the children.”
Now PRM Group has decided to take their support of Cancer Fund for Children to the next level by encouraging their staff to fundraise and they have an ambitious target of £10,000. Already over £900 has been raised by the team’s participation in this year’s Belfast City Marathon.
Patrick Black, Project Marketing Manager of PRM Group said: “We are really looking forward to our exciting new partnership with Cancer Fund for Children. Over the next year staff at PRM Group will have the chance to engage in a variety of fun and rewarding initiatives, designed to support the work that the organisation are doing, and to raise greater awareness of the challenges faced by children in Northern Ireland who are living with cancer and also their families. Within our team we have witnessed the impact that this illness can have on peoples’ lives and we are delighted to be able to contribute to the work of Cancer Fund for Children as part of our commitment to our local community.”
