Last year I was proud to hold my own Yummy Mummy Coffee Morning in aid of CLIC Sargent’s Yummy Mummy Coffee Morning Campaign and raised £150 for the charity. This year, although I haven’t been able to organise my own event, having just had my little girl, I am keen to support the campaign and have been helping with the promotion of an event local to me that I am attending, so also wanted to share this fantastic campaign with all my lovely followers.
This year the Yummy Mummy Coffee Morning has been replaced by The Great Mums Get Together, which is running between 10th and 17th March. The campaign offers people the chance to get together and raise money for children and young people with cancer and their family.
“Every day 10 children and young people in the UK hear the shocking news they have cancer. Treatment normally starts immediately, is often given many miles from home and can last for up to three years. Being diagnosed with cancer is a frightening experience and the emotional, practical and financial implications of treatment are intensely challenging for the whole family.”
CLIC Sargent is the UK’s leading cancer charity for children and young people, and their families. They provide clinical, practical, financial and emotional support to help young people cope with cancer and get the most out of life. They are there from diagnosis onwards and CLIC Sargent aim to help the whole family deal with the impact of cancer and its treatment, life after treatment and, in some cases, bereavement.
The Great Mums Get Together is a great opportunity for us Great Mums to… well… Get Together and raise some fantastic money for an amazing charity. I really enjoyed my event last year and am pleased to be involved in some way again this year.
