Alice's Big Buzz event raises over £1,000 in memory of sister

Alice's Big Buzz

Family and friends gathered to watch Alice become a life shaver and take on the Big Buzz challenge. The support she received from them was fantastic, and Alice has raised an incredible £1,010 for CLIC Sargent.

Alice's mum Wendy said: "We are extremely proud of Alice for supporting CLIC Sargent in this way. Both Sarah and Alice spent hours doing their hair, so this was a very significant and emotional event for us all.

"The support from our family, friends and neighbours has been amazing and to raise just over £1,000 in an afternoon was beyond all expectations!

"CLIC Sargent was Sarah's favourite charity so to be able to help other families receive that on-going support is very important to us".

The family also organised a ball in February this year and hope to organise a quiz night next year to continue their support for children and young people with cancer.
