Abacus make fundraising child’s play

Abacus cheque

Local fiduciary and fund services specialist, Abacus, donated £1,280 to Bowel Cancer Isle of Man in August 2015 to assist the charity with its ‘Breaking the Poo Taboo’ campaign, which works to raise awareness of bowel cancer, its symptoms and risks, and get people talking freely about it without any embarrassment.

Heather Norman, Chairman of BCIOM, said: “We are overwhelmed with Abacus’ generosity and can’t thank them enough for choosing to support our charity.

“With currently only five people on our committee we have little resource for fundraising and so rely heavily upon donations such as this in order for us to continue our work. The donation is therefore gratefully received and will be put to very careful use.”

Paul Swindale, Senior Manager at Abacus, said: “We are delighted to support Bowel Cancer Isle of Man as our quarter charity and hope that the donation will go some way in helping them to continue providing invaluable information and local support to those on the Island affected by the disease.”
