The Cayman Islands Cancer Society is now established in its new office on the ground floor of the MCR Building on Eclipse Drive (off Eastern Avenue). Several local companies came and donated time, services and materials to make the move possible.
DDL Studio Ltd. (Architects, Interior Designers and Valuation Surveyors) designed the planning and layout of the new facility. McAlpine donated labour and materials for the ‘fit-out’ of the new office space, a process that took aproximately two weeks. Miracle Brokers assisted with the moving of furniture and other items from the old location to the Eclipse Drive location.
Brian Eccles, Managing Director of DDL Studio, said he was happy to assist the Cancer Society with their move. ‘There are many worthy charities in our community but for obvious reasons the Cancer Society receives widespread support. I hope the new facilities will allow the Society to continue its wonderful work in cancer awareness, counseling and assisting cancer patients.’
Lez Foreman of McAlpine, on handing over the keys of the facility to the Society’s Chief Operating Officer, Christine Sanders, said: ‘On behalf of McAlpine Ltd., we are pleased to have assisted the Cayman Islands Cancer Society with the new fit out of their offices and facility. It gives us great pleasure knowing the new facilities will help people in need as the Society continues to be a beacon in many ways, to families dealing with cancer in one way or another.’
Mr. Foreman also expressed his gratitude to the McAlpine staff involved with the project as well as all the sub-contractors.
Christine Sanders of the Society said that on behalf of the Board of Directors of the Society, she would like to thank all the companies and individuals who assisted with the move and so generously donated of their time and service.
This will enable the Society to devote more of their resources to helping cancer patients and promoting cancer awareness. She added that the Society is open for business as usual at the new location with all telephone numbers, fax machines and email addresses remaining the same. She is looking forward to welcoming all of the Society’s members and clients to the new location.
