Every day 10 children and young people in the UK hear the shocking news that they have cancer.
CLIC Sargent is the UK’s leading cancer charity for children and young people and their families. They provide clinical, practical and emotional support to help them cope with cancer and get the most out of life. CLIC Sargent are there from diagnosis onwards and aim to help the whole family deal with the impact of cancer and it’s treatment, life after treatment and in some cases bereavement.
Having lost one of our team mates to leukaemia in 2008 we wanted to get involved with the charity by raising money and awareness on their behalf, and have been doing so proudly ever since.
Since the start of the partnership the Godfathers have raised over £25,000 for CLIC Sargent.
"The Godfathers have done a tremendous amount for CLIC Sargent. CLIC Sargent relies on the generosity of groups such as the Godfathers to ensure that we are able to continue to support young people and their families in Bristol and throughout the UK.
However, we still need to do more. At the moment there are significant gaps in the provision for the children and young people CLIOC Sargent aims to support. While we register 95% of children aged between 0-15, we only register 60% of young people aged between 16-18, and 40% aged 19-24. This means that many many children and young people may be missing out on the vital support that they need. help us close this gap by showing your support for the CLIC Sargent Godfathers".
