On Saturday August 13th, a team of Balcas staff will hike 15km up County Fermanagh’s Cuilcagh Mountain to mark the 15th birthday of Northern Ireland Children’s Hospice (NICH). The summit affords amazing 360 degree views of the forests of Fermanagh and neighbouring counties which are harvested and maintained because of Balcas activities.
These mature and beautiful forests represent just one part of the Balcas story, a cycle which begins with the planting of 15 million trees yearly. As well as collecting sponsorship for the walk, we invite you to literally help Shape Our Growth by joining this fundraising drive and staking your place in a dedicated wood.
Fermanagh is home to Horizon West Hospice, a local NICH facility to whom we have committed to fundraise for essential services through sponsorship of our hike. Right on our doorstep, this amazing centre provides care for children and young people with life limiting conditions such as Muscular Dystrophy, neurological disorders, for which there is no known cure, and life threatening illnesses such as cancer and heart disease.
In November we will on your behalf be planting and naming a wood for Hospice in Colebrook Estate, County Fermanagh and erecting a plaque acknowledging your generosity. This is a unique opportunity for you to become part of the 15 million story, offset your carbon footprint and enhance the lives of children.
