Go Gold for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month in September!

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and we’d love you to get involved to help shine a spotlight on the need for more research and funding.

Gold is the international colour of childhood cancer awareness, with many supporters choosing to wear a gold ribbon during September.

Every year in September, childhood cancer champions, advocates and supporters encourage iconic buildings, historic landmarks, monuments, bridges and natural environments to GO GOLD. Whether lighting up gold or by displaying gold ribbons, the global effort is making a difference. We’d love for you to be ‘Our Champions’.

Please show your support for all kids fighting cancer and their families by wearing a gold ribbon purchased from CLCRF. Our combined efforts will raise awareness and improve future outcomes for children diagnosed with cancer!

You can purchase your gold ribbons or packets of sunflower seeds from us at the CLCRF office during business hours at Unit 3/100 Hay Street Subiaco WA or alternatively give us a call on (08) 9363 7400 and we can arrange to post some out to you and your workplace.

Beyond Bank Community Morning Tea

Today Children’s Leukaemia and Cancer Research Foundation were invited to a community morning tea with our community banking partner, Beyond Bank. It was an extra big thrill to have the opportunity to meet and speak personally with Matt Taberner from the Fremantle Dockers Football Club. We know our very own Young Ambassador Georgia Lowry will be pleased with the signed poster.

Our relationship with Beyond Bank is only getting stronger with their Community Development Partnership program, of which we are proud to be a part. We’re also thrilled to know they will be joining us, through their staffing volunteer program, for the Friends of Finlay Camp Out on Saturday 27 October. So make sure you register to camp out with us and say hi to those wonderful staff members volunteering on the day.

Did you know, just by having a Beyond Bank savings account, you could be earning community dollars for the CLCRF?

Make a real difference with your savings account and open a Community Reward Account with Beyond Bank! The more you save, the more Beyond Bank will donate to Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation (Inc.) (CLCRF) at no cost to you!

It’s a high interest savings account and a unique way for supporters of CLCRF to give towards child cancer research. Beyond Bank will give the Foundation a Community Reward Payment based on the combined average annual balances of all supporters’ savings.

On Friday 28 September at 2pm the Bunbury Senior Citizens Club is holding a Chronicles of Narnia High Tea & Fashion Show at the Bunbury Senior Citizens Club, 1 Stirling Street, Bunbury to raise money for the 2018 Southwest Bike Trek. Funds raised from the Southwest Bike Trek will go to the Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation (Inc.) for childhood cancer research.

One of the participants of the Southwest Bike Trek is organising the fundraising High Tea and Fashion Show. There will be a continuous flow of tea and coffee with shared homemade treats, and Wardrobe Fashion will be showcasing the best of their evening and day wear for summer.

Not only that, the event will feature a White Witch Parade, Turkish Delight Competition, Gold Coin Pitch and other fun games such as Lucky Money Boards. Those attending are invited to wear their wedding dress or simply a crown for the White Witch Parade – prizes will go to the person with the most innovative costume! Tickets are only $20 and anyone interested in attending should contact Betty on 0419 648 260.

The High Tea will be funding the Southwest Bike Trek this year, which is held from Sunday 7-13 October and will start in Perth and end in Margaret River.

Fulton Hogan Chooses the CLCRF

On Friday 20 July, Foundation CEO, Andrea Alexander, visited the Landsdale site of company Fulton Hogan Ltd.

Fulton Hogan Ltd. has more than 80 years’ experience in the transport, water, energy, mining, civil construction and land development infrastructure in New Zealand, Australia and the South Pacific. They create communities from the ground up, starting with their own network of quarries, which is complemented by our asphalt, emulsion and precast plants across Australia and New Zealand.

Andrea was there to accept a donation of $1,000 from the employees, as part of Fulton Hogan’s safety initiative, where the company rewards the field team that works the most safely with a donation to a chosen charity.

The team based at Landsdale chose CLCRF to be the beneficiary.

Many thanks to the Fulton Hogan employees for choosing CLCRF and their generous support – this will greatly benefit research into childhood cancer research.

If your organisation would like to make a tax-deductible donation to the Foundation, find out more about Workplace Giving and see how it can benefit your organisation as well as child cancer research.
