Support the sup­port­ers at Can­Teen ap­peal

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS/OPINION -

Can­Teen needs help for their an­nual fundrais­ing drive.

The Can­Teen Street Ap­peal on Septem­ber 19 and 20 forms an in­te­gral part of the char­ity’s in­come each year and re­quires sig­nif­i­cant man­power, said Can­Teen chief ex­ec­u­tive David Pearce. The char­ity gets no gov­ern­ment fund­ing. It is the only New Zealand or­gan­i­sa­tion ded­i­cated to sup­port­ing the 1600 peo­ple aged 13-24 liv­ing with can­cer.

‘‘With 14 branches across the coun­try, we make sure support is within reach of ev­ery young New Zealan­der dur­ing an in­cred­i­bly try­ing time in their lives,’’ Pearce said.

Can­Teen’ an­nual ap­peal runs from Septem­ber 8 to 21.
