CHARITY: In the running for cash boost

Nobody thinks cancer will happen to their child, until it does.

When cancer strikes it affects more than just a young person’s health. It shatters families emotionally and physically, separating them for treatment at specialist hospitals, which are often far from home, leading to extra expenses.

CLIC Sargent is the UK’s leading support charity for children and young people with cancer and their families.

Our social workers, nurses and other frontline staff work tirelessly to limit the damage cancer causes to young lives beyond their health.

Last year our teams in the North East supported 428 young people and awarded £61,299.00 in grants.

CLIC Sargent is in the running to win a charity partnership with supermarket Morrisons worth up to £7million. If we win, we’ll be able to double the amount of grants we give, increase specialist nursing support and transform services.

We urge Morrisons employees across the North East to vote for us to become their charity partner.

And if you are a friend, family member or loved one of a Morrisons employee, please encourage them to back our cause.
