Every day, 10 children and young people in the UK hear the shocking news they have cancer. CLIC Sargent provides clinical, practical and emotional support to help them cope with cancer and get the most out of life.
CLIC Sargent’s Big Bucket Collection is held between October and December. Each December is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, highlighting the impact of childhood cancer on families across the UK.
Thousands of volunteers will give a little time to collect at venues across the UK this winter, aiming to raise £200,000 to help young cancer patients and their families.
But if you can’t take part in a collection, don’t worry… you can still donate to our Virtual Big Bucket Collection online today!
We are aiming to raise £1,000 online this winter, which could pay for 1 family to stay for a month at one of our CLIC Sargent Homes from Home, providing free self-catering accommodation near to specialist children’s cancer treatment centres, which are often many miles from a family’s own home. Staying in a Home from Home ensures a family can be close to their child during treatment. The atmosphere in a Home from Home is friendly and welcoming. If they are well enough, the child or young person can stay there too.
How your money helps…
£4 could pay for a colourful storybook for a child, putting cancer into words and illustrations they can relate to.
£15 could pay for a copy of CLIC Sargent’s DVD to help families where a child or young person has died of cancer to understand and cope with their grief.
£33 could pay for a family to stay overnight in one of CLIC Sargent’s eight Homes from Home.
Donate to the Virtual Big Bucket Collection today and help us raise vital funds for children and young people with cancer!
