Ballybay Cancer Society want to convey their grateful thanks to the people of Ballybay and its surrounding areas who have given so generously throughout 2016. The catchment area for Ballybay reaches out from the centre of Co. Monaghan so it covers a large number of local areas in which to give assistance. In return all these areas played a very large part in terrific fundraising in a year when times were tough and pennies were scarce. This didn't stop all those kind generous people giving to this local worthwhile charity and therefore lots of locals received assistance from Ballybay Cancer Society at a time when it was needed most. The fundraising like other years comprised of all types of fun filled ventures e.g. head/beardshaves, pancake days, in lieu of birthday/anniversary presents, donations from Brides & Grooms in lieu of wedding favours. This Christmas there were a number of people who gave substantial donations in lieu of Christmas cards. Ballybay Cancer Society has a lot of clients so it was a particularly helpful boost as we issue numerous winter grants to help with the day to day finances which people shouldn't have to worry about on top of all the hardship that illness brings to a household. The provision and financing of a transport service is the other main function of Ballybay Cancer and it has received lots of thanks and praise from users and their families. Ballybay Cancer Society want to thank everyone who gave so generously of their time, efforts and monies and take this opportunity to wish all a Healthy Happy New Year.
