CLIC Sargent South Hampshire Voluntary Group’s Christmas fundraising

The fabulous CLIC Sargent South Hampshire Voluntary Group’s Christmas Fundraising group raised nearly £1,600 for young lives against cancer at their recent Christmas evening.

Sue Bolger Christmas Fundraising

Sue Bolger, chair of the South Hampshire Voluntary Group, has supported CLIC Sargent for over 20 years.

For many years she has hosted a beautiful Christmas evening with carols and poems at her home. This year Sue and her husband Peter, with the help of the committee, put on a really special evening.

Great singing!

Family and friends showed their great singing talents and read out poems, including some of their own work. All enjoyed joining in with the singing, especially a fun version of ‘A Partridge in a Pear Tree.’ The sausages in a roll and mince pies were very popular, and the delicious homemade punch was a great hit!

Sue Bolger said: “I am delighted that we recently raised almost £1,600 for CLIC Sargent to support children and young people with cancer. Over the years, I have spoken to many families that have been helped by CLIC Sargent and know of the great work they do to support families, emotionally, financially, clinically and practically at a very difficult time.”

CLIC Sargent Fundraising Engagement Manager Liz Blunt, said: “I have been fortunate enough to attend two of Sue’s Christmas evenings now and they were both so enjoyable.

"I would like to use this opportunity to say a huge thank you to Sue Bolger and the amazing committee: Bobby, Amanda, Tamsin, Sarah, Shelagh, Sheila, Irene, Jane, Jackie, Ann, Lois and Maddie.

"Most of the committee are from Crawley and close by and have been involved with raising vitally needed funds for a very long time. They are all fantastic!

"This year, including Jane’s daughter running the London Marathon, the fabulous group have raised almost £6,000 and have been incredibly helpful in selling hundreds of pounds worth of Christmas cards and donating stock, stamps and foreign coins.”
