Amy Randall, along with her dad Colin Randall, decorated their family home with over 7,000 Christmas lights to raise money and awareness for CLIC Sargent.
So many lights!
Amy’s fiancé, Christopher Edwards, had cancer when he was a child, and the family is passionate about the work of CLIC Sargent. They encouraged their local community to check out the lights which were turned on at 5pm each day, and then to dig deep and give whatever they can afford to help reach their target amount of £150 by 27 December, when the lights were turned off for another year.
Every penny raised by Amy and her family will help CLIC Sargent’s social care professionals, specialist nurses and vital services lessen the devastating impact of cancer on the lives of young people and their families.
Amy’s mum Sharon is also helping to raise funds, as the family heard about the work of CLIC Sargent through their local Morrisons, a CLIC Sargent corporate partner, and where Sharon works.
Amy, who works at Countess of Chester Hospital as a Nursing Assistant supporting cancer patients, said: “It took us four days to get all the lights up! But it was worth it, as we’re all so passionate about the work CLIC Sargent does.
“In our opinion no child or young person should be without CLIC Sargent’s support when they need it most, so please donate and make a difference.”
CLIC Sargent Fundraising Engagement Manager Stefanie Underhill said: “We are so proud to have Amy and her family support our fight for young lives against cancer.
“Without CLIC Sargent’s fabulous fundraisers, many young people and families would have to go through the ordeal of cancer treatment without our help.”
