young people with cancer
Our nurses supported around 1,000 children with
cancer and their families
We awarded 4,828 grants with a total value of

How our school is helping
We are taking part in Wig Wednesday!
Wig Wednesday is on
Wednesday 22nd May.
On Wig Wednesday, CLIC
Sargent is asking everyone to
get a wig on for the day and
make a donation to help
support young cancer patients..
How our school is helping
• By taking part in Wig Wednesday we are helping
more people to learn about how difficult it is for
children and young people to go through
treatment for cancer, and how important it is to
show kindness and understanding to them during
this time.
• We are also helping to raise lots of money to help
CLIC Sargent support children and young people
with cancer and their families.
Thank you!
