CLIC Sargent – Practice-a-thon!
CLIC Sargent, the cancer charity for children and young people, is encouraging music teachers across Yorkshire to help their students take part in a Practice-a-thon.
Practice-a-thon has been going for over 10 years now, and involves students getting together to make music and raise money for other children and young people in need. Schools and groups from across the UK have raised over £900,000 for CLIC Sargent through music, song and dance – and had a great time doing it…
Now is the time to get involved by organising summer concerts in Yorkshire as a way of having fun with music and song and fundraising at the same time.
Every day 10 children and young people are told they have cancer, and diagnosis usually comes as a shock. Treatment normally starts straightaway and can last up to three years. Although survival rates are over 70%, cancer remains the single largest cause of death from disease in children in the UK.
There are many ways you can talk part – register by calling 08451 20 63 40. You can also visit www.clicsargent.org.uk/practiceathon to find out more.
