Airport supports FORCE in its 25th year

Friday 20 January 2012

Local cancer charity, FORCE, has been selected as Exeter Airport’s Charity of the Year for 2012.  During the twelve month association, thousands of passengers will be made aware of the good works of the organisation and have the opportunity make a contribution.

Matt Roach, Exeter Airport’s managing director said: “We are pleased to be able to offer FORCE help in the form of exposure to a huge number of travellers. This should raise the profile of the charity to an even greater level in their twenty fifth year and hopefully assist in fund-raising for their on-going projects.”

As well as funding a purpose built Cancer Support and Information Centre in the grounds of the Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital, FORCE purchases pioneering equipment to improve treatment and supports a cancer research team, focused on lung and ovarian cancers, within the Peninsula Medical School.

Sarah Daniels, FORCE Fund-raising Manager who was delighted by the news said: “We are really looking forward to the year ahead. Not only will the airport help generate much needed funds but it will also be a great place to raise awareness of our work and the support we offer to local people affected by cancer.”

In May this year FORCE Cancer Charity reaches its 25 birthday. Over the years the charity has supported 10’s of thousands of local people by raising over £11 million to help fund a range of local cancer services.

Meriel Fishwick, CEO for FORCE added: “2012 will be a busy year for the charity as the FORCE Cancer Support Centre, which is funded purely by money raised by voluntary contributions, is extended and the financial requirements tops £760,000.”
