Elvis tribute night raises an amazing £800 for young cancer patients

Trish and her team arranged for a local Elvis impersonator to hold a night of entertainment spanning the career of the ‘king of rock 'n' roll’.

The night also included bingo and a raffle bonanza to help raise the £805.

Trish Binney, whose son Daniel was supported by CLIC Sargent during his own cancer journey said:

CLIC Sargent is a cause close to my heart as they were really there for us throughout Daniel's treatment. 

"We especially enjoyed the time spent up at Malcolm Sargent House in Scotland"

CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager for Yorkshire, Stephen Jackett said "We are absolutely thrilled that Trish has made this wonderful contribution; her hard work and dedication will pay for four more families to spend a weeks holiday in the comfort of Malcolm Sargent House in Scotland."
