After their success at last year’s prestigious invitational rugby 7s side, the CLIC Sargent Godfathers have kicked off their 15th annual 7s circuit in aid of children and young people with cancer.
To celebrate the team’s 15th anniversary, the CLIC Sargent Godfathers have an exciting agenda which will see their three teams travel the UK and Europe competing in the top 7s and 10s event on the circuit.
Original founding member, Garth Hannaford said: “We all understand how much cancer effects people’s lives and we all understand how much good work CLIC Sargent do, in providing support for the young people and their families in their times of need.”
Every year the team secures generous sponsorship from local and national companies which enables them to donate the proceeds raised from their merchandise and prize money to CLIC Sargent. So far they have raised almost £10,000 for children and young people with cancer.
This money could pay for two CLIC Sargent Nurses for an entire month whilst they coordinate clinical and non-clinical care for children with cancer to reduce the number of visits they have to make to hospital.
CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager, Kiren Fernandes said: “We are delighted to have the support of such a prominent rugby 7’s side. They have not only raised an incredible amount of money but also a huge amount of awareness.”
Thank you to the team for its continuing support for CLIC Sargent.
