Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month in the UK and in many other countries around the world.

CLIC Sargent is using this month to raise awareness of the impact of childhood cancer and of our work supporting young cancer patients and their families.

Wear your gold ribbon

Every month, thousands of families cope with the devastating impact of a cancer diagnosis and its treatment.

During Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, CLIC Sargent is asking people to wear a gold ribbon to show they are standing by these families when their lives have been turned upside down.

Buy your gold ribbon from CLIC Sargent's online shop, your local CLIC Sargent charity shop or branches of the supermarket Lidl, fashion retailer Wallis or J D Wetherspoon pubs.¹

Show your support

There are lots of other ways for you to get involved to show your support for young cancer patients and their families:

  • Text ‘GOLD’ to 70030 to donate £3 to CLIC Sargent. Standard network charges apply*

  • ‘Go gold’ for children and young people with cancer, and their families. Organise a fundraising event during September, such as a gold-themed dress down day at work or tea party.

¹ Please note the gold ribbons will not be stocked by Lidl stores in Northern Ireland or any Wallis concessions in department stores.

CLIC Sargent blog

As part of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month we’ve created a blog to show the many ways CLIC Sargent and our supporters stand by children with cancer. Visit the blog to hear from families who have been supported by CLIC Sargent, our staff, volunteers and those who raise money to support our work.
