Supporting young lives

Their fantastic presentation showcased the important role that CLIC Sargent plays in supporting young lives and limiting the damage cancer causes beyond their health.
And the hard work paid off as they were awarded second place, winning a fantastic £250 for young lives against cancer!
CLIC Sargent Fundraising Engagement Manager Mairi Wilson said: "The group were great to work with, they were so enthusiastic and engaged.
"A huge well done to them for coming second in the competition and winning £250 for CLIC Sargent. This money could pay for a family to stay in one of our Homes from Home for over a week. Congratulations!"
