Cellnex Announces Support for Cancer Fund for Children
Cellnex, Ireland’s newest Telecommunications Infrastructure Provider, is throwing their support behind our plans to build Daisy Lodge Mayo, a new therapeutic short break facility for children across Ireland diagnosed with cancer and their families.
Speaking about Cellnex’s support for Cancer Fund for Children, Managing Director Colin Cunningham said:
“It is our firm belief that no child should suffer cancer alone and Corporate Social Responsibility is at the heart of Cellnex and we are proud to support Cancer Fund for Children. The passion and commitment of their team, to make a difference to families coming to terms with the devastating impact of a childhood cancer diagnosis is inspiring. We are delighted to help the charity build a new therapeutic short break centre for children diagnosed with cancer and their families and would encourage other businesses to get behind this incredible cause.”
Our vision is to build a second Daisy Lodge in Co. Mayo. This will be a dedicated short break facility for children aged 0-24 and their families. A place where families will find warmth, understanding, safety and rest and will allow us to increase the number of families we support every year from 500 to 1,000.
The site of our new therapeutic facility in Lisloughery, Cong, Co. Mayo is an area of outstanding natural beauty and with planning approval now secured, we are embarking on a fundraising drive to secure €11.5m to build and run this purpose-built complex. Our project is being backed by Rory McIlroy who donated €1.2m to the new facility.
