Communities across the south west and south Wales came together for the countdown to Christmas in support of children and young people with cancer, organising a variety of festive fundraisers that have raised an incredible £65,000.
From Cornwall to Cardiff, communities were bursting with ideas to raise money for CLIC Sargent, from crazy jumpers to Christmas carols and bucket collections to New Year's Day dips. Together they showed real support and solidarity for the families CLIC Sargent supports.
As well as a brilliant display of kindness, everyone together managed to raise over £65,000 for children and young people with cancer.
CLIC Sargent south west fundraising volunteer Will Gaudoin said: “It has been a real privilege to work on CLIC Sargent's Christmas Countdown campaign.
“All the different groups and organisations that took part have shown such humbling dedication, and I am honestly gobsmacked at what they’ve managed to achieve – £65,000 is a staggering success. My congratulations and gratitude go out to each and every one of them.”
