FINANCE NEWS: Irish bank receives award nomination for cancer support

The Northern Bank in Ulster has been nominated for an award because of its support for cancer charities in Northern Ireland.

The Link Awards are run by the Northern Ireland Council for Voluntary Action, and lottery operator Camelot.

There are three awards: one for employees, one for a company, and the Link Trophy. All are to honour organisations in the commercial and public sectors that have given their help to charities, either financially or with time, resources and ideas.

"These awards are the primary mechanism by which local voluntary and community organisations can demonstrate their thanks to those in the private and public sectors," said Seamus McAleavey, the association's chief executive.

There have been 71 nominations for this year's awards, which will be presented on 25 September.

Catherine Jordan, of Camelot's regional office in Belfast, said: "The entries highlight the bond between the business and voluntary sectors in Northern Ireland."
