Help char­ity reach new heights

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - OPINION -

BRI­TAIN’S lead­ing chil­dren’s can­cer char­ity CLIC Sar­gent, is seek­ing ad­ven­tur­ous peo­ple to take part in a ab­seil chal­lenge, tak­ing place at Char­ter House on Satur­day, May 12.

The char­ity is ask­ing 120 dare­dev­ils to plunge 120 feet from the roof of Ash­ford’s high­est of­fice block and raise money to help them sup- port chil­dren with can­cer. Places are lim­ited and will be awarded on a first come, first served ba­sis.

Fund-rais­ing man­ager Dan Pow­ell said: “We would like to en­cour­age peo­ple from Ash­ford to take part in this event and help chil­dren with can­cer in the re­gion.

“Sadly, 10 chil­dren and young peo­ple are di­ag­nosed with can­cer ev­ery day in the UK, but CLIC Sar­gent acts as a life­line, keep­ing fam­i­lies to­gether when they get that ter­ri­ble news.”

The event is open to any­one over the age of 16 and those sign­ing up need to raise a min­i­mum of £100 for CLIC Sar­gent.

All money raised will go di­rectly to help chil­dren with can­cer and their fam­i­lies.
