World Cancer Day

Today is World Cancer Day! Join CLIC Sargent's fight for young lives against cancer and wear and share your Unity Band® as one incredible act of unity.

World Cancer Day

Today 11 children and young people in the UK will be diagnosed with cancer and we will be fighting tirelessly to limit the damage this cancer causes beyond their health.  

The Unity Band® represents strength and unity. It is the icon of World Cancer Day and is a simple way to show your support.

Get your Unity Band®

Our CLIC Sargent Unity Bands® are available from our online shop, our high street charity shops or from our partners J D Wetherspoon and Wallis for a suggested donation of £2.


Donate online today and you'll be supporting young lives like Seb and his mum Natasha:

The support from CLIC Sargent while Seb was having treatment was amazing. They were just always there for me...Everyone at CLIC Sargent has the time for you.

Sign our Cancer costs petition

When cancer strikes young lives the additional costs can devastate families financially. It can cost them an extra £600 a month as a result of a cancer diagnosis - and we don’t believe that’s right. Sign our petition today and stand up for young cancer patients and their families this World Cancer Day.

We campaigned, it happened!

Thanks to our supporters backing our Cancer costs campaign, we have formed a new partnership with British Gas to help lighten the load of families' energy bills. Families told us that they often worry about their energy bills and 62% of parents said that their household energy bills increased and nearly half struggling to pay their energy bills during their child’s treatment.

Working together

This World Cancer Day, CLIC Sargent is working with nine other charities to unite the nation in a simple but powerful life changing act – wearing a Unity Band®.

By joining forces we will make a bigger impact in transforming the lives of millions who are affected by cancer.
