FonaCAB Jingle All the Way in support of the Children’s Hospice

26 October 2021

Northern Ireland's leading taxi firm, FonaCAB have come on board as an official headline sponsor for the Children's Hospice festive Jingle 5K and10K event.

Now in its fifth year, the popular event encourages families across the country to don their best festive fancy dress and walk, run, jog or cycle in support of the Hospice on Sunday 5th December or a day that suits. 

Northern Ireland Hospice, Commercial & Brand Director, Mary McCall, said: “We’re absolutely delighted to be bringing this virtual fun-filled event back again this Christmas in partnership with FonaCAB. We had a fantastic turnout last year, and this year we’re hoping that more people than ever will join us and do the 5k or 10k – their way. We love to see the many different experiences as people make the virtual event their own and support us in their own unique way.

Each year, the demand for our vital services continues to increase.  As we only receive a portion of funding from the government, we need fundraising events like the Jingle 5k/10k to generate vital funds to support our services”.

William McCausland, Managing Director at FonaCAB, said: to “We’re thrilled to be supporting such a worthwhile charity. After a difficult 18 months for everyone, the event is a great opportunity to boost local community spirit, and I would encourage you all to sign up and take part in this fun-filled event”.

All Jingle 5K and 10K registered participants who raise over £50 in sponsorship will be gifted with a bespoke Jingle medal.  Everyone who raises £100 and more will also receive a water bottle.
