Support Rachel Again
Saturday 9th February 2013
Some of you will know that Rachel Waters will be running in the Bath Half Marathon on 3rd March. Rachel will be running to raise money and awareness for the charity CLIC Sargent.
CLIC Sargent is a charity in the UK that was formed by the merger of Sargent Cancer Care for Children and Cancer and Leukaemia in Childhood in 2005. The charity specializes in providing support for children with cancer.
CLIC Sargent aims are:
- to help as many children and young people as possible survive cancer and make the most of their lives
- to help the whole family cope with the trauma of cancer, life after treatment and, in some cases, with bereavement
- to make sure that young people with cancer and their families can speak out about their needs and get involved in how they are met
Rachel is a teacher at Fowey Community College where a young pupil is currently in remission for Leukaemia.
I’m running the Bath Half Marathon again this year and have chosen to support CLIC Sargent as I did last year. With your help, I managed to raise over £500! This time, I have the more modest target of £200 and would be delighted if you were able to make a donation – any amount would be welcome.
The Year 9 pupil who inspired me to run for CLIC Sargent is currently in remission, which is wonderful news and I want to continue to support the work of the charity in helping others like her.
You can donate online at www.virginmoneygiving.com/RachelWaters or send a cheque payable to me at: Mylcara, Trenewan, Looe, Cornwall. PL13 2PZ.
With best wishes for a happy, healthy year ahead,
