Glamorgan Gazette - - Your Views - Cerys Sadler, CLIC Sar­gent fundrais­ing and en­gage­ment man­ager for South and Mid Wales

CHRIST­MAS is a time when fam­i­lies should be to­gether, cel­e­brat­ing, yet the re­al­ity for lots of fam­i­lies of young cancer pa­tients means on­go­ing treat­ment far from home, in­creas­ing fi­nan­cial bur­den and emo­tional pain.

This fes­tive sea­son, CLIC Sar­gent, the UK’s lead­ing cancer char­ity for chil­dren and young peo­ple, is call­ing on peo­ple in Wales to raise money for young cancer pa­tients and their fam­i­lies, to pro­vide them with spe­cial­ist sup­port.

There are two ways you can help CLIC Sar­gent this Christ­mas, either get fes­tive with your own fundrais­ing event, or be­come a Stamp Champ by sav­ing used stamps from Christ­mas cards and send­ing them in to the char­ity to be resold.

Your sup­port can help pay for a so­cial worker to be there to sup­port a fam­ily when things get tough. School runs, bed­time sto­ries and hog­ging the sofa. It’s not just spe­cial oc­ca­sions that cancer dis­rupts. But it doesn’t have to be like this. CLIC Sar­gent Care Teams fight tire­lessly to k keep fam­i­lies to­gether, when cancer is tear­ing them apart.

Send your stamps to: S Stamp Champ – C Christ­mas, CLIC Sar­gent, Unit 6, Abbey Wood Busi­ness Park Fil­ton, Bris­tol BS34 7JU.
