CLIC Sargent Recycling Page
Today, 10 children and young people in the UK will hear the shocking news that 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. We provide clinical, practical, financial and emotional support to help them cope with cancer and get the most out of life. We are there from diagnosis onwards and aim to help the whole family deal with the impact of cancer and its treatment, life after treatment and, in some cases, bereavement.
CLIC Sargent was formed in 2005 after a successful merger between CLIC and Sargent Cancer Care for Children.
Sargent Cancer Care for Children - founded in 1968 by Sylvia Darley OBE as a lasting memory to the late Sir Malcolm Sargent.
CLIC - Cancer and Leukaemia in Childhood - founded in 1976 in the south west by Bob Woodward following the diagnosis of his young son Robert with cancer two years before. Sadly, Robert died in 1977 aged 11 years, and Bob went on to dedicate his life to charity work.
In partnership with EmptyCartridge Ltd a leading recycling company, we have developed a scheme to turn your empty inkjet cartridges into valuable funds to help continue our work.
If you would like to help us raise funds for CLIC Sargent whilst at the same time reducing the amount of electronic waste consigned to landfill.
