Highlights from Childhood Cancer Awareness Month 2016

This September CLIC Sargent supporters far and wide rallied together for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Thank you!

Highlights from Childhood Cancer Awareness Month 2016

During Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, CLIC Sargent focused on the financial impact of cancer.

On average, parents spend £600 extra per month if their child has cancer. We don’t think this is right or fair. So thank you to everyone who has campaigned with us, fundraised for us and helped spread the word in September (and beyond!). Here are some highlights:

CCAM cake

You used the power of cake to raise money

Many of you held bake sales to raise money and company WorldFirst baked this golden cake. Their London office raised over £500 for young cancer patients.

You shopped ‘til you dropped

Over 1,600 gold ribbon pin badges were bought in our charity shops and online shop, and you bid for items totalling over £2,300 in our Go Gold eBay auction.

CCAM challenge
You took on the £170 challenge

You did all sorts of things to raise £170 - the same amount as the grant we give to families after a child is diagnosed with cancer. Becky, from Kings Somborne, went the extra mile and ran, walked and cycled 170K, raising nearly £800!

You were CLIC Sargent campaigners

Thousands of you signed our Cancer Costs petition urging the government to take action on the costs of cancer. You can still become a CLIC Sargent campaigner by signing our petition and emailing your MP.

CCAM superheroes

You were superheroes! 

Staff of our corporate partners, including Lidl UK (who kindly sponsored CCAM) J D Wetherspoon, Network Rail and Wallis held bucket collections, sold pin badges, matched donations, delivered hampers of goodies to CLIC Sargent Homes from Home and more.
