The Board of the NACFB have selected CLIC Sargent, the leading children’s cancer charity, as the Association’s new charity partner.
The partnership, which started on 1st October 2019, will last for one year and will see fundraising activities take place to support the UK charity’s work at the Gala Dinner and Commercial Finance Expo as well as at regional events and at our Eastcheap headquarters.
The NACFB team have set themselves the ambitious target of raising £30,000 towards the charity’s efforts over the next twelve months.
CLIC Sargent is the UK’s leading cancer charity for children, young people and their families. Its care teams provide specialist support across the UK.
The charity supports people from diagnosis onwards and aims to help the whole family deal with the impact of cancer and its treatment, life after treatment and, in some cases, bereavement.
The charity also undertakes research into the impact of cancer on children and young people. It uses this evidence to raise awareness and to seek to influence government and policymakers, and those who provide public services across the UK.
Every penny helps to support this amazing cause so please join the fight for children and young people with cancer and donate.
How your donations could help…
- £25 covers an hour of a social workers time, so they can
provide emotional support for young people and families immediately after diagnosis.
- £170 is given as a CLIC Sargent grant to help families meet
the sudden extra costs that a cancer diagnosis can bring.
- £990 would cover the cost of a family to stay in a CLIC
Sargent Homes from Home for a month, so they can stay near their child for free when they are going through treatment.
