CLIC Sargent - when cancer strikes young lives

What's the challenge?

CLIC Sargent helps families limit the damage cancer causes beyond their health. They fight tirelessly for children and young people with cancer, often when they feel they can’t. They do this individually, locally and nationally, so that the families can focus on the important things, like their child getting well.

CLIC Sargent challenge you to collect items to create some emergency care packages which will benefit Bristol's Home from Home 'Sam's House' and/or 'Clic's House'. You will be provided with a list of suggested items, which will include everyday items such as toiletries, tea and coffee and not forgetting the biscuits!  This can be taken up by more than one team.

Jessie May are holding 'The People’s Grand Prix' on September 10th. It will be held at Odd Down Cycle Track in Bath. This is a disabled friendly family fun run in September. It’s the only race of its kind locally – specifically aimed at encouraging and empowering terminally ill children and their families and the wider disabled communities to take part in a race shoulder to shoulder with people without disabilities. 
 
Alongside the run, JM will be hosting a community fete fun fair with a chance for people to listen to some live music, purchase wares from local craft stall holders, and also enjoy a hog roast or BBQ. They are looking for volunteers to help on the day and also do a leaflet drop amongst the local community in the run up to the event to try and encourage more people to come along and support them on the day.

FareShare would love some teams to get involved at the heart of their food re-distribution, giving you the opportunity to help them improve the daily lives of people facing food poverty. Their daily operations rely entirely on volunteers and you will be working alongside staff and other volunteers on one or more of the following activities…

  • Picking food orders.

  • Working with staff and fellow volunteers to make up orders for each of their organisations receiving food on that day.

  • Labelling orders and helping to load the vans.

  • You may also be asked to help deliver the items in the van.

  • Sorting food and organising the depot.

  • Sorting fresh fruit and veg.

This can be taken up by more than one team.
