Cambridge United Community Trust Selected as Beneficiary of Cambridge Roar 2017
The countdown for the 2017 Cambridge Roar Festival of Charity Events began this month with a red carpet launch party at the Quy Mill Hotel and the keynote announcement that Cambridge United Community Trust will be one of the three beneficiaries for the 2017 programme of events. The other two chosen charities are Arthur Rank Hospice Care and the East Anglian Air Ambulance.
Speaking about the announcement, Danny Kerrigan, Community Trust Manager for Cambridge United said: “We are delighted to be named as a Roar 2017 beneficiary. Alongside Roar and the other two charities, our mission is to make a real difference to people’s lives in the local community, and, as such, this was a natural partnership to establish.
“We are very excited about the range of charity events announced for the coming year and look forward to working with the fabulous Roar team. The money raised from these events will help us to continue to develop our charitable work, whether this is more disability sport provision, more activities for senior citizens, or a new educational project in primary schools.”
Kicking off in June, Roar 2017 will present 12 main events that include corporate games, a variety of dinner evenings, the Roar Summer Ball, a business-to-business exhibition, afternoon tea, white collar boxing, celebrity comedy nights, fashion shows, the Cambridge News Wedding Fair, and the Grand Finale Fire and Ice Ball.
Tony Murdock, Founder & Chairman of Cambridge Roar and General Manager of Quy Mill Hotel, was pleased to add CUCT to the list of beneficiaries: “We’re really excited about the coming year and we’re thrilled to have Cambridge United Community Trust as one of our new beneficiaries. It is a fantastic charity that uses sport as a means of educating, empowering and inspiring people. They’ve done some truly amazing work and we are really looking forward to their involvement with The Roar in the coming year.”
The Cambridge Roar Festival of Charity Events was launched in 2014 at the Quy Mill Hotel & Spa. The aim of the Festival is to provide a diverse range of events whilst raising much needed funds for charity. Since it started, the Roar has supported local and national charities, including The Prince’s Trust, The Arthur Rank Hospice Charity and Cancer Research UK.
