Soccer stars help kick-start campaign for CLIC Sargent
kmfm and five of the UK’s top international footballers have teamed up to encourage schools and clubs to take part in Kick for CLIC Sargent 2007, the national charity football event that supports children with cancer.
England and Chelsea captain John Terry, Northern Ireland striker David Healy, Scotland Captain Barry Ferguson, former Wales captain Gary Speed and England Women’s forward Karen Carney have all lent their support to Kick for CLIC Sargent and are urging people to take part this May and June.
Now in its third year, more than 130,000 children took part last year, helping to raise £180,000 for CLIC Sargent, the UK’s leading children’s cancer charity.
Everything needed for schools and clubs to take part is provided in a handy pack, so all that’s left is for them to organise an event, which can be anything from a penalty shoot-out to mini tour- naments or skills competitions.
Children get sponsored to take part and, as well as encouraging them to care for others and helping to get them fit and active, their school or club gets to keep 25 per cent of the money raised. The other 75 per cent helps CLIC Sargent continue supporting the 10 children and young people diagnosed with cancer every day in the UK.
