When cancer strikes young lives CLIC Sargent helps families limit the damage cancer causes beyond their health.
Cancer doesn’t discriminate. Today, 12 more children and young people in the UK will hear the devastating news that they have cancer. From diagnosis, CLIC Sargent’s specialist care teams will step in, ready to help, support and guide. They will provide a specialist package of support tailored to each young cancer patient and family.
CLIC Sargent fights tirelessly for children and young people with cancer, often when they feel they can’t. We do this individually, locally and nationally, so that they can focus on the important things, like getting well. And if the worst happens, we will work with bereaved families to get them support, to help them cope with their emotional pain.
Our vision is that everyone under 25 with cancer, and their families, will get the support and help they need during their cancer treatment and beyond, including bereaved families living with emotional pain. We want them to thrive, not just survive, and for everyone to join in that mission.
I started working with CLIC Sargent in 2017, because I wanted to be a part of that vision. I want to help stop cancer destroying young lives, and I can’t do that on my own. I work with amazing individuals, groups & businesses across the North of Scotland to raise funds & awareness for this incredible charity.
So many businesses have CSR objectives but aren’t sure how to make the most of them. They may think it’s all just bake sales and dress down Fridays. Don’t get me wrong, I do love a bit of cake as much as the next person, but it can be so much more than that. I can work with you to come up with a Charity of the Year partnership that works for you, your staff and your business goals. We can organise meaningful and fun team building activities, find staff volunteering opportunities that meet your objectives, look at pro bono support that fits with your values and most importantly, you can be a part of the solution to our biggest problem:
Right now we only reach 2 in 3 people who need us. We NEED to be able to support everyone who needs us for as log as they need us. Please get in touch if you can help. Thank you.
