Katie's family received support from CLIC Sargent when her sister was diagnosed with cancer. The couple wanted to give back to the charity, and decided to use their wedding as the perfect opportunity to do so.
Katie said: "We had such a fun day! My parents have been running a 'CLIC Sargent breakfast' in Holsworthy, Devon for around 15 years, and all our friends and family understand why it's so important to us."
The couple’s wedding raised a fantastic £172.50 for the charity, which is enough to pay for a CLIC Sargent grant.
Cancer can have a huge effect on a family’s finances and a CLIC Sargent grant is offered to children and young people with cancer, and their families, as soon as they come into contact with us to help meet the sudden extra costs that a cancer diagnosis can bring.
CLIC Sargent Area Fundraising Manager Elizabeth Charing said: “This is such a lovely way to raise money for charity, and we wish them a lifetime of happiness together.”
