Regular Giving

Have you ever thought of becoming a Regular Giver?

Regular donations enable the Foundation to plan for the future and helps to give us financial stability. It is also one of the most cost-effective and convenient ways to support childhood cancer research! By choosing to receive a one-off receipt at the end of each financial year, you are able to easily keep track of your tax-deductible gifts. Weekly, monthly, quarterly, or any interval of your choice, it’s that easy.

Regular donations, no matter how big or small, help us to ensure our vital funding of childhood cancer research continues.

Please phone (08) 9363 7400 today to request a donation form and join our family of Regular Givers.

West Leederville Primary School Fundraiser

The wonderful students of West Leederville Primary School recently held a fundraiser to benefit CLCRF. On Friday 21 June, students and staff were invited to wear their pyjamas to school and bring a gold coin donation to celebrate the Winter Solstice.

We are thrilled to announce that through this fundraising event, a total of $667.10 was raised for The Foundation. This is a terrific effort!

Just by wearing their pyjamas to school, the staff and students of West Leederville Primary School have helped fund important research into childhood cancer and raise awareness for the Foundation.

This goes to show that there are so many ways to fundraise and help make a difference! We would like to thank West Leederville Primary School for supporting the Foundation through this fun initiative.

If you have your own fundraising ideas, our team is always ready to help you in any way we can! Simply email us or call our office on 08 9363 7400.

Generous Donation from Franklin Tate Estates

CLCRF would like to thank Franklin Tate Estates for the generous gift we received from their winery. The Tate family have kindly donated selected cartons of their award-winning wines for The Foundation to use at upcoming functions and events.

The Tate family have been making wine since 1969 and have vineyards located in the heart of the Margaret River region. They have become Margaret River’s most well-known winery and have been twice awarded “Most Outstanding Red Wine in the World” at the Wine Magazine International Wine Challenge.

CLCRF runs countless events throughout the year to help raise awareness and funds for childhood cancer research, so this donation will be extremely useful.
This is a great reminder that cash donations are not the only way you can support The Foundation. There are many ways you can help us to continue raising funds for the important research into childhood cancer.

In the hopes of future generations having better childhood cancer treatments, Brian has very kindly decided to donate $5,000 of his raffle prize money back to CLCRF.

Volunteers needed for the Perth Tradie Expo

Each year, Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation (Inc.) participates in the Perth Tradie Expo and we are on the lookout for some more volunteers to help collect donations over the weekend. This year, the Expo will take place at the Ascot Racecourse on 21-23 June from 8am to 5pm.

The Expo is proudly sponsored by Toolmart and provides a second to none chance to purchase all types of work equipment from power tools to excavator’s at special Expo prices. There’s not just great savings for work tools but you’ll also find amazing specials on vehicles, camper-trailers, accessories, machinery and much, much more.

The Perth Tradie Expo is open to the General Public and entry is only a Gold Coin donation. These donations are collected by our amazing volunteers and will go towards two charities, including the Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation. Last year, our wonderful volunteers collected a grand total of $5,182.45!

If you are interested in volunteering, you can choose your shift and volunteer as little or as much as you like! Not only will you have the opportunity to experience this wonderful expo but you would also be collecting much-needed funds for CLCRF to continue the important research into childhood cancer.

IMPORTANT INFO:
– To collect donations you need to be at least 16 years of age. If you would like to volunteer with younger children or siblings, there may be other volunteer jobs available for them, such as handing out fliers.

Simply contact the CLCRF office on (08) 9363 7400 or email [email protected] to register yourself as a volunteer!

Jackson’s Story

Jackson is one of over 600 Australian children who are diagnosed with cancer every year. Just like many of these children, Jackson has spent the majority of his short life in hospital fighting the horrible disease.

Jackson’s Story begins with a suspected stomach bug when he was just 7 months old. Two different GPs brushed it off as a virus but Jackson’s mum Michelle remained concerned when his stomach seemed swollen and the vomiting and diarrhoea continued. After the second GP visit, Jackson vomited all over the floor at Woolworths and his eyes started to roll to the back of his head. A nearby midwife told Michelle to take Jackson to the hospital immediately.

“I kept saying Jackson, Jackson to try and get him to respond but he wasn’t really responding.” Says Michelle. “I just started panicking and panicking more now that a nurse had seen him and was worried enough to tell me to go to hospital.”

Michelle took Jackson to Bunbury Hospital and after being concerned about dark bruises on the top of his forehead, he was sent to a CT scan. A paediatrician then examined Jackson and Michele asked if she should be calling her husband Marc, who was working away, to come home.

“I remember the doctor looking up at me and the look on his face said everything. Without seeing the blood results, he was 99% sure that Jackson had leukaemia.”

They went straight to the Emergency Department at Perth’s Children’s Hospital where Jackson was diagnosed with both Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia (ALL) and Acute Myeloid Leukaemia (AML). Since his diagnosis Jackson has experienced many setbacks on his treatment journey, including a staph infection, a murmur in his heart and a relapse of AML in his right testis. He has undergone intense high dose chemotherapy, a bone marrow transplant and radiation therapy.

Jackson and his family still have a tough road ahead of them to beat this horrible disease. The family currently have to wait another three months to see if Jackson’s bone marrow transplant was successful, in the hope that he might be in complete remission.

To ensure CLCRF can continue to fund life-changing research to offer hope to families like Jackson’s, we need your help. By making a tax-deductible donation before June 30, you will be helping to make a huge difference.

Donation from Bunbury Rotary Club

The Foundation recently received a generous donation of $2,500 from the Bunbury Rotary Club. CLCRF Chairman Geoff Cattach was there to accept the donation at a club meeting earlier this month where he also gave a talk on the great work being done by the Foundation.

Every year, the Bunbury Rotary Club holds a Golf Day organised through club member John Hovey and the Hovey Group, a large family owned civil construction business in Bunbury. Proceeds of the annual Golf Day are donated to local charity groups.

Donations like this are so important for helping the foundation continue the ground-breaking research into childhood cancers. As a great way to give back to the community, this is something all community groups and organisations should consider.

CLCRF would like to sincerely thank the Bunbury Rotary Club. They have been a valuable supporter of the Foundation and we appreciate their continued generosity.
