Every time you buy a pack of our Sea Salt Metcalfe’s Charity Popcorn, you’re helping out families who are going through an unimaginably difficult time – when a young person is diagnosed with cancer.
In 2014 we pledged to raise £30,000 over 3 years
for our wonderful charity partner, CLIC Sargent – and you helped us raise a massive £100,000!
WHO ARE CLIC SARGENT?
It‘s devastating enough when a young person is diagnosed with cancer. Everyone is focused on getting the best treatment for them, and in doing so it’s easy to overlook the associated costs of going through treatment. Petrol, accommodation, lost wages through work… they all add up. The last thing you want to be thinking about when a young family member is ill is how you’re going to get by financially. CLIC Sargent helps to ease that burden.
CLIC Sargent’s Homes from Home are crucial for families who regularly travel large distances for their child to be treated for cancer. They provide free accommodation in seven UK cities, just a short walk from the hospital. Here, the family can stay together and keep some sense of normality, while they support their child during often gruelling, intensive treatment.
Children undergoing cancer treatment need their families close by. With the support of those donating money, CLIC Sargent can help families deal with childhood cancer together.
