About the event

This event will take place on the 19th July 2020.

On the back of an amazing festival in July 2019 where we raised a whopping £22,637 for CLIC Sargent, we’re getting ready to go again! Join us again for a fun filled day with live bands, local trade stalls, children’s entertainment and plenty to do for all the family. We’re hoping to have a few of the Exeter Chiefs with their big inflatable obstacle course and the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight again.

All proceeds raised will be donated to CLIC Sargent

Sponsorship

The £33 Challenge: This year we are encouraging all of our participants to raise £33 each in sponsorship for their efforts on the day. If every participant from 2015 raised just £33, we could have funded a room in a CLIC Sargent Home from Homes for 18 months.

£8 could help pay for a DVD to help prepare a young person with cancer to return to school, helping them keep up with their studies and deal with the challenges of meeting friends and teachers after their experience.

£20 could pay for a CLIC Sargent Play Specialist to help a child prepare for and cope with treatment, by using models, toys and photos to explain what will happen. When a child is calm, treatment can be given more easily and can also be more effective.

£33 could pay for a family to stay overnight in one of CLIC Sargent’s Homes from Home, providing free self-catering accommodation near to specialist children’s cancer treatment centres, which are often many miles from a family’s own home.

£170 could pay for a CLIC Sargent grant. Cancer can have a huge effect on a family’s finances and a CLIC Sargent grant is offered to children and young people with cancer, and their families, as soon as they come into contact with us to help meet the sudden extra costs that a cancer diagnosis can bring.

Nobody thinks Cancer will happen to their child, until it does. Cancer doesn’t discriminate. Today, 12 more children and young people will hear the devastating news that they have cancer but, thanks to CLIC Sargent, they won’t have to face it alone.

From diagnosis, CLIC Sargent’s specialist care teams will step in to help, support and guide by providing a package of tailored support including free self-catering accommodation, social workers and specialist nurses to each young cancer patient and their family.

Last year CLIC Sargent supported just over 148 families in Devon with their very own Home from Home in Bristol, alleviating the financial cost of accommodation and allowing families to stay together during the toughest times.

CLIC Sargent also provide six Specialist Nurses and three Social Workers in Devon to support the young person at their home, school or workplace to minimise disruption, while still providing with the emotional, medical and financial support they need. We can only do this thanks to incredible supporters like you.
