About the partnership

The BAM team chose CLIC Sargent, the UK’s leading cancer support charity for children, young people and their families, after inviting charities to pitch to become their new charity partner.

In January 2019, BAM Construct announced an extension to the CLIC Sargent partnership, to continue supporting young cancer patients and their families. The partnership has so far raised over £160,000 since launching in 2017.

The continued support CLIC Sargent receives from BAM Construct UK Ltd in 2019 will help to fund CLIC Sargent’s Homes from Home, where families stay together for free, for as long as they need to.

Helping young people with cancer and their families

CLIC Sargent currently has 10 Homes from Home, which are havens for patients and families during treatment, reducing the financial cost and emotional strain of cancer so that families can stay together.

BAM’s fundraising efforts will help CLIC Sargent to provide this vital service to families that need us. Families like Lola’s, whose Mum Lucy says:

“For the first five weeks of Lola’s treatment we stayed at CLIC House. It was brilliant because we could bring Maya with us and she could be there for Lola too. For the last week and half Lola could also come back to CLIC House with us, so it was great that the family could all be together. It was very important for us to have the girls together during that period since they hadn’t been apart before and needed each other.”

Beth Kidd, BAM Construct UK Ltd, said: “We are thrilled to be working with CLIC Sargent again this year and look forward to making this year our biggest fundraising year to date.”

Sam Scott, CLIC Sargent Corporate Account Manager, said: “We are so proud to partner with BAM Construct UK and delighted that we will continue to work together in 2019, allowing us to support even more families.”
