As well as providing families with incredible Cornish holidays, Holiday Cottages Polperro has raised £3,496 for children and young people with cancer, and their families.
Holiday Cottages Polperro gives its customers the opportunity to make a £2 donation to CLIC Sargent when they book a holiday with the company.
Carl Wood, Holiday Cottages Polperro managing director, said: “The reason we chose CLIC Sargent was due to the help we received from the charity when our son James was diagnosed with cancer in October 2006 at the age of 11.
“We are glad to be able to help the charity continue with the great work and support it gives to families and young people faced with the same battle we experienced.”
Making a difference
Holiday Cottages Polperro's donation could fund a CLIC Sargent Social Worker for a whole month. Our social workers aim to meet children and young people with cancer, and their families, soon after diagnosis and help them to understand and cope with the emotional, practical and financial effects of cancer, through treatment and beyond.
CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Jordan Anderton said: “It is extremely generous of Holiday Cottages Polperro to continue to support CLIC Sargent year on year, and raise an incredible amount of money for the charity.
"The holiday company gives its customers the platform to make a difference to the young people CLIC Sargent supports. I am extremely grateful for both Holiday Cornwall Polperro and their customers for their generosity.”
