CLIC Sargent Fundraising Marathon

CLIC Sargent is the UK’s leading cancer charity for children and young people, and their families. They provide clinical, practical and emotional support to help them cope with cancer and get the most out of life. They offer support from diagnosis onwards and aim to help the whole family deal with the impact of cancer, its treatment, life after treatment and sadly, in some cases, bereavement.

Yorkshire Marathon

The charity has people running in the Yorkshire Marathon, who are raising money for CLIC Sargent services.

And they need you!

CLIC Sargent are looking for volunteers aged 16 and over to go along to the race for a fun day out cheering on the wonderful runners.

It will be held on the 20th October in and around York from 8.30am to 4.30pm (subject to change from the race organisers). There is no experience required except enthusiasm and energy to cheer on the runners, as well as teamwork ability. There will be a full briefing two weeks prior to the event from the organisers and CLIC Sargent and volunteers from the charity will be accompanying the cheer support.

The charity are partners for the event so they need as many people as possible to come out and help support the runners. It is a fantastic cause and will be great experience for our cheer teams.

If you are interested or have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Holli Kellett via email: or telephone: 0113 288 3226.

Fund Raising at UKCA

Our events are fun and exciting for all involved. Everyone supports each other and the atmosphere is always electric! But the UKCA is about so much more.

We encourage our members and friends to support not just each other, but good causes too. Last year we supported a little boy called AJ. He suffers with Cerebral Palsy and was unable to walk without assistance. We helped to raise money for him to have an operation he so desperately needed. This year, he is here at the competition and walking around the velodrome!
