A CANCER support service has called on the people of Cork to support their fundraising drive to provide a new state-of-the-art centre.

Cork ARC Cancer Support House plans to move to two-storey, 8,000 sq ft Sarsfield House in Wilton, which will cost €1.5 million to redevelop.

The charity, supported by rugby star Simon Zebo, has launched its Annual Spring Ball 2019 which will take place at the Clayton Silversprings Hotel on March 1.

The proceeds of the fundraising ball, which is held in association with Sunshine & Umbrellas, will be the first event in a major drive to raise the necessary funds.

“In Cork, we continue to see a rising demand for professional support services for cancer patients and their families,” said Aileen O’Neill, CEO.

“The new premises will support people who need our services, and we are calling on the people of Cork to support our fundraising drive to refurbish Sarsfield House.”
