Smiles at Christmas Appeal

This Christmas, The Sun Newspaper is supporting CLIC Sargent through its Smiles at Christmas appeal. Your donation will help us change the lives of young cancer patients this Christmas.

This week - your donation will be worth twice as much!

The Morrisons Foundation, an independent charity set up by Morrisons, will match fund every pound donated between 11 and 17 December up to £25,000. Morrisons is partnered with CLIC Sargent until 2020, and is supporting The Sun’s Smiles at Christmas campaign to help more young lives facing cancer. If you donate £20 today - CLIC Sargent will receive £40. 

Stop Cancer Rewriting Christmas

Cancer rewrites Christmas for the families CLIC Sargent supports across the UK. Instead of being at home at Christmas, they can be on a hospital ward. Instead of waiting for Father Christmas, a child with cancer can be waiting for chemotherapy. 

Change a child's story this Christmas:

Callum, aged three, is currently in hospital awaiting a bone marrow transplant this Christmas. See how Father Christmas visited him early this year.

Alex, aged 13, has terminal cancer and is making memories with his family. Read how he met Frank Lampard.  

Reuben, aged three, is currently being treated for cancer. Read how CLIC Sargent supported his family with our 'Christmas holiday house'.

Jason, aged five, is thought to be the world's youngest testicular cancer patient. He was supported by CLIC Sargent at Christmas

You can help

Every day, 11 children and young people are diagnosed with cancer. By donating to the Smiles at Christmas appeal, you could help fund more CLIC Sargent support workers, to give families one-to-one support and help them to cope this Christmas.
