Butterfly Events are the official voluntary organisers of this event and all entry fees will go to Cancer Research UK. As our charity has had a tough few years with the delay in research and the cancelling of thousands of fundraising events, we ask that you make an extra effort this year to raise some money for our charity. Please use the giving page enough and we will also send you a sponsor form by email.
Supporters of Butterfly Events have been enjoying fun in Ayrshire, in aid of Cancer Research UK since 2007. Lorna Dempsey started fundraising following the death of a close friend to Breast Cancer. To date, our voluntary committee, have raised a fabulous £511,422 , which is helping fund ongoing research into all types of Cancer in the UK. Butterfly Events aims are: - to organize fun, exciting, affordable events for everyday people whilst raising much needed funds for this fantastic charity and highlighting the importance of cancer awareness.
Cancer Research UK is the Worlds leading independent charity, dedicated to beating cancer through research. The charity will spend 80p from every £1 we raise directly on research into over 200 different types of cancer. We help fund over 4,000 scientists, doctors and nurses throughout the UK who investigate all aspects of cancer from sell growth to clinic trials with suffering patients. Cancer Research UK receives no government funding, so it is very important we continue our good work.
