Happy Wednesday one and all!
One of the charities I support wholeheartedly is CLIC Sargent. They helped Georgie so much when he was ill and since his death I have found support with them too. They kindly set up an Especially for You Fund in Georgie’s name so his memory can help other children and young people suffering from cancer. They are also very supportive of my fundraising and campaigning efforts as well as this blog. They are a a fantastic charity who do incredible things for young cancer sufferers and their families.
March is the month of Mother’s Day. A time when mum’s get to be centre stage and we take time to appreciate what they do for us. CLIC Sargent have a mum based even taking place in March and I wanted to highlight it here and encourage everyone to take part if they can!
This March see’s CLIC Sargent’s flagship event for mums takes place. The Great Mums Get Together asks mums across the UK to get together and have a cuppa for children and young people with cancer.
So whether you feel like hosting an indulgent afternoon tea, a pamper night or simply turning your usual coffee morning into a fundraiser, it all makes a difference. You can sign up to take part at www.clicsargent.org.uk/gettogether or for inspiration and ideas join the Great Mums Get Together Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/pages/Great-Mums-Get-Together/133197136737766.

If anyone would like to host a Great Mums Get Together and raise money for the George Pantziarka Especially for You Fund to directly benefit CLIC Sargent, please let me know!
CLIC Sargent is a hugely worthwhile charity to support and I know from personal experience that their fantastic work helps thousands of families through one of the hardest situations. No child should have to face cancer but I’m very glad a charity like CLIC Sargent exists to help those that do sadly have to fight this horrific disease.
