This years' Lenten Campaign raised money for Shimna Valley Complex, Newcastle. This complex is ran by the Northern Ireland Cancer Fund for Children and it helps families of children affected by cancer by providing respite and a much needed break from the hospital environment. This facility is free for families and the NICFC are only able to offer these much needed breaks due to generous donations from the public.
