Finnbar’s Force needs your votes

The family and friends of a little Hethersett boy who died last year from a brain tumour are urging everyone to support the charity set up in his memory by voting for it to receive up to £25,000.

 

People have until November 21 to vote in the 2017 Aviva Community Fund project which sees grants given out to good causes supported by public votes.

 

Finnbar’s Force has already made it through to the voting stage and now needs supporters to vote for the charity and put it through to the final judging round.

 

The charity was set up in memory of five-year-old Finnbar Cork (pictured) who died in August last year.

 

On the charity’s Facebook page the organisers urge: “We need you to vote for us (you get 10 votes, so please vote 10 times!). Not only that, but we need you to spread the word for us and about us to EVERYONE you can through Facebook, word of mouth and every other way that you can think of! So please, share, share, share!”

 

If successful, the charity would put the money towards one of its aims, developing an advocacy service for families affected by a brain tumour diagnosis, providing guidance and specialist knowledge to help them understand their options, seek second opinions and ensure communication between all services is as clear as possible.
