Celebrity Chef Rory O’Connell Calls on Ireland to ‘BBQ to Beat Cancer’
Celebrity chef Rory O’Connell has joined forced with the Marie Keating Foundation to turn up the heat on cancer this summer.
They have just launched a new campaign, BBQ to Beat Cancer which encourages people across Ireland to become a BBQ Hero by hosting a fundraiser in aid of men’s cancer programmes and services.
On registering you will receive a chef’s hat, posters, invitations, balloons, a Ballymaloe Foods recipe booklet and a Ballymaloe Foods coupon.
Rory O’Connell, who co-founded Ballymaloe Cookery School alongside his sister Darina Allen, commented, “Each year in Ireland about 37,000 cases of cancer are diagnosed and more men than women are affected. However, we can come together to raise funds to help beat this disease. BBQs are a fun way to do this and they can be healthy too. We have provided you with lots of great recipes to get you started, so register for your BBQ to Beat Cancer pack now and tell cancer to ‘burger off’.”

Commenting the partnership, Eoin O’Flynn, Marketing Manager of Flogas, said, “We are very proud to be partnering with the Marie Keating Foundation on the BBQ to Beat Cancer campaign. We have long admired the work that the Foundation does in supporting men and women throughout Ireland who are affected by cancer. Many of our customers and colleagues are affected by this disease so this campaign is a great way to give back while also encourage people to have fun and enjoy themselves this summer.”
