Everyone is different, but some people want to do something positive in a difficult situation. Some families find that friends and other family members also want to do something to show their support.
This may mean fundraising, so that’s why we’ve created our Support Me funds.
Using these funds, you can fundraise together with friends and family towards a special named fund in aid of CLIC Sargent. Donations come direct to CLIC Sargent to help children and young people with cancer.
Today, CLIC Sargent can only support two out of three young people and their families who need us. You can help us to be there for more of them.
How does it work?
A Support Me fund is a personalised fund named after the child or young person who is currently receiving treatment or support from CLIC Sargent - or has completed their treatment. The donations received are kept together as one collective total on your online fundraising page, along with messages from friends and family.
Who can set up a Support Me fund?
A parent, family member or friend of a child or young person who is currently receiving treatment or support from CLIC Sargent - or has completed their treatment.
How do I register?
