Would you like to raise funds for Tuam Cancer Care, but don’t know how? Then why not take part in our of our annual fundraising events.
In 2002, I decided to sign up as a volunteer with Tuam Cancer Care. As I had no training or experience, I was apprehensive to say the least. I was quickly put at ease by the more experienced staff. My first morning consisted of freshly squeezed fruit juice and cups of tea for clients that had attended that morning. Over the next few months, I gained great confidence and a sense of place by being in the presence of our wonderful clients. Their positivity and enthusiasm has been inspirational to me. Sixteen years later I am still involved in the organisation, having occupied every role from fruit juicer to chairman. In my current capacity as a fundraiser, we are faced with the continued struggle to raise funds in the locality. Our organisation depends on the generosity of the North Galway area. Thankfully the people and business community have always been extremely generous.
Tuam Cancer Care is a superbly run organisation and the management structure espouses transparency at all times. This is essential for an organisation like ours in an area like ours. All our donors and contributors know that the monies collected are used in Tuam for our clients in Tuam Cancer Care.
I am proud to be a volunteer of Tuam Cancer Care
and I know my Mother would be too.
Thank you so much, you really helped me to survive.”
