The Options Belfast office held the official handover of funds to its charity partner, Action Cancer. The funds were raised as a result of the firm’s annual Belfast City marathon fundraising efforts, this year comprising of four relay teams and five individual full marathon participants.

As a non-government funded charity, the support from Options will go a long way towards our therapeutic cancer services as well as those affected by the disease.
