The Art File is absolutely delighted to announce that a further £18,000 has been raised for CLIC Sargent through the sale of its Christmas Charity Packs. 48p from each sale goes directly to the charity.
This is The Art File’s ninth year working with this charity, bringing the total raised so far to nearly £150,000.
CLIC Sargent, like many other charities, quietly get on with vitally important work on a day to day basis, supporting young people with cancer and their families in their hours of need.
CLIC Sargent’s mission is to change what it means for a young person to be diagnosed with cancer. They believe that children and young people with cancer have the right to the best possible treatment, care, and support throughout their cancer journey and beyond. And that they deserve the best possible chance to make the most of their lives once cancer treatment has ended.
The Charity also has a network of 10 houses. These houses are close to main cancer treatment centres at hospitals, allowing families of young people with cancer to stay in a homely, friendly atmosphere while their children receive treatment. This reduces costs, keeps the family together and, more importantly, gives the young person a sense of normality. The houses also give young people an opportunity to speak about their conditions with like-minded people.
For 2019, due to demand, The Art File has increased its Charity Pack offering to include the RSPCA and Dementia UK, in order to increase its charitable giving and to cover a wide range of charitable sectors.
The Art File’s Christmas Charity Packs can be found in most independent and multiple retailers across the UK. You can also buy a hand-picked selection direct from its website.
