Multitruck aims to raise £25,000

Managing Director, Peter Nunn ran this year's Virgin London Marathon for the charity and staff also took part in CLIC Sargent's Wig Wednesday, wearing wigs for the day to raise funds and show support for children and young people with cancer.

Staff members and their families will next be taking part in the Bletchley Carnival Parade dressing up with the company's Pink Panther mascot to help raise awareness of the charity in the area.

In 2013, CLIC Sargent provided support to 68 Buckinghamshire families through health and social care professionals including nurses, social workers and youth workers, and also financial help to meet extra costs, free accommodation close to specialist cancer centres for families and holidays in the UK.

Peter said: "I have seen the difference CLIC Sargent makes to the lives of children and young people with cancer and their families. The charity helps reduce the stress and isolation, which children and young people particularly feel, and helps everyone make sense of a cancer diagnosis and cope with the emotional impact on their everyday lives.”

CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Ben Herbert said: “We are absolutely thrilled that Multitruck has pledged this wonderful contribution.

"We really appreciate the hard work and generosity that will go in to raising the pounds – every penny raised will help provide support for children and young people with cancer, and their families.”
