Our Mercury team went to Hell & Back for The Oesophageal Cancer Fund (OCF) and The Friends of St Luke Cancer Care. Our initial target of €10,000 has been well and truly smashed. In fact the number has rose to nearly €30,000. Absolutely fantastic work by everyone involved and especially our brave Mercury warriors who coasted through the course.
Established in 2001 the Oesophageal Cancer Fund (OCF) is a registered charity and voluntary organisation, which has grown to be the national voice representing oesophageal cancer in Ireland. Their aim is to raise awareness of the symptoms related to oesophageal cancer, provide funding for research into the disease and help improve the outcomes for people dealing with this cancer.
Our second charity was founded in 1981 to provide much needed care for patients at St Luke’s Hospital, Rathgar. St Luke’s Hospital is now part of the expanded St Luke’s Radiation Oncology Network supporting St Luke’s Hospital, Rathgar ~ St Luke’s Radiation Oncology Centres at Beaumont and St James’s Hospitals. Two fantastic charities that deserve so much.
