December is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. CLIC Sargent will be making the most of this December to raise awareness of the challenges children and young people with cancer face, how we help and why we need to raise more funds to improve the support we can provide.
Currently, we can only provide two out of every three children and young people with cancer with the support they need. We need to raise more money to ensure more of them get the help they need. This Childhood Cancer Awareness Month will help us take one more step towards achieving that ambition.
There are many ways you can get involved this December:
ITV’s Text Santa
CLIC Sargent is really excited to be one of six chosen charities taking part in ITV’s Text Santa this December.
There will be a range of fundraising and awareness raising activities in the run-up to ITV’s annual charity fundraiser, which is an entertainment extravaganza airing on prime-time TV on Friday 20 December.
Our 2013 Christmas Appeal
Quinn was diagnosed with cancer when he was just three years old. Find out how we helped him and his family in our special Christmas Appeal.
Big Bucket Collections
We’ll continue to hold our Big Bucket Collections at venues across the UK throughout December. Look out for our Chief Bucketeers in supermarkets and shopping centres near you – or if you’d like to hold a collection yourself you can still sign up!
Christmas pin badges
Show your support this December with a CLIC Sargent Christmas pin badge! With four designs to choose from in total, you can find them at CLIC Sargent partners J D Wetherspoon, Santander and Lidl. At a suggested donation of £1 per badge you could try and collect them all!
Choirs and orchestras across the UK will be taking to the stage for CLIC Sargent at Christmas concerts throughout December. Our upcoming events page has information about them all so find out where your nearest one is and go along to get into the festive spirit.
If you’re near London this December, CLIC Sargent's annual Christmas Celebration at the Royal Albert Hall on 11 December is a festive occasion for the whole family.
