Franklin County News - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE -

Pro­fes­sion­als Pukekohe is as­sem­bling troops to raise money for the an­nual Child Can­cer Foun­da­tion Ap­peal this month.

On March 17 Pro­fes­sion­als Pukekohe will be hold­ing its an­nual road­side col­lec­tion in Tuakau.

Pro­fes­sion­als Real Es­tate Group sup­ports the work CCF does for chil­dren and their fam­i­lies af­fected by can­cer. Each week more than three chil­dren in New Zealand are di­ag­nosed with can­cer. The CCF aims to re­duce the im­pact by of­fer­ing ser­vices that en­sure chil­dren and their fam­i­lies are sup­ported, in­formed and re­main con­nected dur­ing their can­cer jour­ney.

CCF as­sists more than 500 fam­i­lies, con­nect­ing with them upon di­ag­no­sis and of­fer­ing as­sis­tance.

Pro­fes­sion­als Real Es­tate Group has sup­ported CCF since 1994 and has raised more than $4.4 mil­lion. Pro­fes­sion­als also sup­ports CCF’s 2017 Sib­ling and Fam­ily Camps, which are an im­por­tant part of the prac­ti­cal sup­port pro­vided to both fam­i­lies and sib­lings of chil­dren with can­cer. Pro­fes­sion­als’ fundrais­ing ef­fort has con­trib­uted to the pur­chase of CCF’s two hol­i­day homes, as well as the na­tional sup­port of­fice for CCF in Auck­land.

Con­tact Gary Mur­phy on 021 922 902 for de­tails.

Col­lec­tors will out in force to sup­port the Child Can­cer Foun­da­tion on March 17.
