Funky Monkeys swing into action for cancer charity

The jungle VIP of Funky Monkeys in Larne took part in Northern Ireland Cancer Fund for Children’s (NICFC) annual Slieve Donard Climb and raised the fantastic sum of £2,200.

Twenty-three members of Funky Monkey’s management and staff from across Northern Ireland helped make up the team of over 90 climbers who took part in the challenge.

Henry Moore, business development manager at Funky Monkey said: “We believe every child is entitled to fun so we took part in this event because we wanted to give something back to the children and families in our local community who have to live with a childhood cancer diagnosis daily.”

Joanne Steele, NICFC fundraising manager added: “With three more children, teenagers and young adults diagnosed with cancer every week in Northern Ireland, NICFC needs the continued support of local businesses like Funky Monkeys.

“We are delighted that the efforts of staff of Funky Monkeys, Larne helped to raise over £13,000 in total from our Slieve Donard Challenge, with money still coming in.”
