During last month's Annual Dinner, ICE NI members contributed £4,703 and €71 total to Brain Tumour Research, the charity nominated by ICE Chairman Philip Brown.

The collection was in honour of the memory of Kevin Carey, a civil engineer from Portglenone who sadly passed away in May 2017 from terminal brain cancer.

Sue Farrington Smith, Chief Executive of Brain Tumour Research, thanked those who donated.

"This money will go toward funding vital research at our UK Centres of Excellence," Sue said.

"Brain tumours are indiscriminate; they can affect anyone at any age. What's more, they kill more children and adults under the age of 40 than any other cancer – yet just 1% of the national spend on cancer research is allocated to this devastating disease."

"We are striving to fund a network of seven dedicated research centres whilst challenging the government and larger cancer charities to invest more in brain tumour research."

"Thank you for helping us to fund the fight."
