The Children's Cancer Unit Our Chosen Charity
The Wellington Park Hotel is delighted to be able to announce its continued support of the Children Cancer Unit Fund throughout 2018 as the Hotel’s chosen charity.
The Wellington Park Hotel has been a trustee of the Children Cancer Unit Fund since 2008. Our Chief Executive, Felix Mooney has been chairman of the trustees since 2014. Throughout the coming year we are hoping to raise a significant amount of money through a variety of events within the Hotel.
The Children’s Cancer and Haematology Unit cares for children up to the age of 16 with cancer and blood disorders. Around 60-70 new patients with malignant conditions, and a similar number with blood disorders, are seen every year. A similar number are assessed for benign conditions such as sickle cell and low blood count.
The Children’s Cancer Unit Charity’s mission is to support the work of the existing unit and staff at the Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children in providing care for children with cancer and blood disorders. This includes funding equipment and resources such as staff training and research.
