The Queens Hotel and Spa chooses CLIC Sargent for 2011
The Queens Hotel and Spa in Bournemouth has chosen CLIC Sargent as its nominated Charity of the Year for 2011. Every day 10 children and young people are diagnosed with cancer. Diagnosis often comes as a shock. Treatment usually starts straightaway and can last up to 3 years. As the children’s cancer charity, CLIC Sargent is there………with clinical, practical and emotional support, every step of the way.
Staffs have already got into the spirit of fundraising and have raised more than £400 so far, by holding a Christmas tombola. And in April, a team will be taking part in a tandem parachute jump from 15,000 feet!
Kelly Hillman, accommodation and sales manager at the hotel knows only too well the support CLIC Sargent offers families whose child has cancer. Her closest friends’ two-year-old daughter was diagnosed and successfully treated for cancer over the last year. Kelly says: “I was blown away by the support CLIC Sargent showed my friends’ family. Everyone at the hotel wants to help raise as much money and awareness for the charity as possible.”
All money raised from the Charity of the Year partnership will go to help children and young people with cancer and their families.
