World Cancer Day – the countdown begins!

This World Cancer Day (4 February), CLIC Sargent, the UK’s biggest charity supporting children and young people with cancer, is asking everyone to #bandagainstcancer. Between 1 – 4 February, 740 volunteers will taking part in fundraising activities at around 280 locations up and down the country to raise vital funds to help the fight for young lives vs cancer.

If you’ve registered to volunteer

If you’ve registered to volunteer at a bucket collection for World Cancer Day, we want to take this moment to say a huge thank you. With your help we can support more children and young people, and their families, who have had their lives disrupted by cancer.

You should have received an email and a pack in the post that contains all the information you need. If you have volunteered with us before make sure you are all branded up. And don’t forget to have fun – we fully encourage wigs/tutus, or whatever you want to wear to stand out, make people smile and hopefully give generously. If you haven’t received anything from us, please contact our Supporter Engagement team before the weekend. You can either call 0300 330 0803 or email Supporter.Services@clicsargent.org.uk.

If you are volunteering at a Morrisons store, please head to the Customer Services desk when you arrive and make yourself known – they’ll be expecting you! Your local Fundraising Engagement Manager should have been in touch to make sure you have everything you need, if you have any problems on the day at all give them a call.

Other ways to get involved this World Cancer Day

If you’re not volunteering at one of our bucket collections there are plenty of other ways you can get behind CLIC Sargent’s World Cancer Day campaign:

  • Get one of our limited edition wristbands. They come in three reversible designs, and are available on our online shop , partners Morrisons, JD Wetherspoon pubs, and in selected Ernest Jones and H Samuel stores. And if you can, share a photo online to let others know who you are wearing your band for this #WorldCancerDay.
  • CLIC Sargent has collaborated with one ofBritain’s best-known street artists Bambi, to create a limited edition t-shirt for World Cancer Day 2020. The image, which is in Bambi’s trademark stencil design, depicts a young person with cancer being lifted up and supported by others, with the phrase ‘Together We Rise’. They are available from https://www.weareprintsocial.com/ (until 9 February).
  • Visit your local Morrisons store and pick up one of 144 special products that are part of the Every Pack Gives Back campaign, or to say hello to our wonderful volunteers between 1-4 February and pop some loose change into a collection pot!
