Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and we’re taking part in the CLIC Sargent ‘£170 Challenge’ to raise money to support children, young people and their families.

Over the next few weeks we will be taking part in a range of fund raising activities to raise as much money as possible for such a worthwhile cause. If you would like to get involved we have listed some useful information and links below.

Why £170?

£170 is the grant that CLIC Sargent gives to families after a child is diagnosed with cancer to help stop unexpected costs like parking and petrol becoming a problem.

Resources For Teachers:

Falling behind with school work and losing touch with school friends is often a big concern for children and young people diagnosed with cancer. Your school can help a child or young person get the best education fitted around their needs, and minimise isolation from school and friendships. If you would like advice and support, you can access a range of resource provided by CLIC Sargent Here.

How to get your school involved:

CLIC Sargent has a range of useful resources for schools, colleges and universities on the best way to approach the subject and how to get involved and raise money.

CLIC Sargent has a range of curriculum-linked lesson plans with links to Key Stages 1, 2, 3 and 4 and first, second, third and fourth level of the Curriculum of Excellence in Scotland to help encourage pupils and students of all ages to help children and young people with cancer.
