Steve Nicholson from Bath has gone ‘pink’ for children and young people with cancer, and their families, raising an incredible £2,000!
Steve swapped his work clothes for an all pink ensemble which included a full pink pedicure, some fabulous make-up and a complete body wax all in aid of CLIC Sargent.
His idea was to hold a series of pink themed collections from September to December to raise money. CLIC Sargent has been a charity close to Steve’s heart since his niece Emily died of cancer.
Steve said: “The support that CLIC Sargent provided our family with during this difficult time was amazing.
"Emily’s parents live in Cornwall and CLIC Sargent provided them with free accommodation during her treatment at Bristol Children’s Hospital. The charity also ensured that the whole family were supported emotionally and practically throughout Emily’s treatment and after.
"Emily would have been 29 now and it’s her memory that motivates me to try and raise as much money possible for CLIC Sargent.”
When I said to friends a couple of months ago that I would do anything for CLIC Sargent – I meant it!
CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager, Kiren Fernandes, said: “We all look to challenge ourselves in different ways and Steve’s challenge has raised an amazing £2,000 for CLIC Sargent which is just fantastic!
"We’d like to thank Steve for going the extra mile for children and young people with cancer, and their families.”
