One week in June
Help for the fight against cancer
What is One week in June?
Ulster Bank’s annual fundraising campaign One week in June takes place over the month of June, culminating in a series of events from June 20th to June 26th 2016 where staff and customers come together to raise money and awareness for Irish cancer charities, to help make a difference to the lives of those coping with the illness.
The campaign, now in its fourth year, will see staff from across the Island of Ireland taking part in numerous events from cycling to coffee mornings to raise awareness and funding for Irish cancer charities that matter to staff, customers and communities. Since 2013, we have raised over £896,000 for various causes close to the hearts of Irish people.
Our ambition is to help our customers and colleagues raise as much as possible for this great cause.
Why support One week in June?
Statistics show that 1 in 4 people will be affected by cancer, whether that takes a personal form or in the support of friends or family during the illness. Ulster Bank is committed to supporting our local charities in order to make a difference in the fight against cancer.
The difference you can make:
Just £20 can fund an hour of nursing from a Marie Curie Nurse. These nurses design and deliver high quality end of life care.
Cash for kids award grants towards buying specialist equipment for children to enhance their quality of life. They are given to children’s charities and organisations to help them undertake projects and new initiatives or to ensure that much needed services can continue to provide essential care and support. All the money raised on behalf of Cash for Kids stays in the area it was raised in providing a helping hand when and where it is needed most.
All of our chosen charities this year help in the fight against cancer from providing medical care and holding support group meetings to researching cures and making wishes come true for children affected by cancer.
Every single euro donated during One Week in June makes a difference to people with cancer and their families throughout Ireland.
