BAM Construct UK has teamed up with charity CLIC Sargent and pledged to raise £100,000 over the next two years to help children and young people with cancer thrive, not just survive, during and after cancer treatment.
The BAM team chose CLIC Sargent after inviting charities to pitch for their new charity partner.
Now, BAM Construct UK Ltd’s £100,000 target could pay for CLIC Sargent to provide over 4,000 hours of support for young cancer patients and their families.
CLIC Sargent’s nurses, social workers and other frontline staff across the UK work tirelessly to limit the damage cancer causes beyond a child or young person’s health by minimising the disruption cancer causes to their education, social life, finances and future prospects.
In addition to employee fundraising activities, there will be opportunities for the BAM team to volunteer at CLIC Sargent’s ‘Homes from Home’. These are the charity’s houses close to specialist treatment hospitals across the UK, which offer free accommodation for families.
Sam Scott, corporate account manager at CLIC Sargent, said: “We are so proud to partner with BAM Construct UK and happy that the team has joined CLIC Sargent’s fight for young lives against cancer.
“With BAM’s support we’ll be able to stop cancer destroying more young lives than ever, and it’s fantastic to have them on board.”
Beth Kidd, community engagement assistant at BAM Construct UK, said: “BAM Construct UK is delighted to be working with such a worthwhile charity, and we look forward to enhancing lives through the many activities we have planned over the next two years.”
