Grilling for a good cause

The Foundation thanks Jack Shembrey who recently lit up the barbie to raise funds and awareness for the vital research into childhood cancer. Jack generously hosted a BBQ Fundraiser for his friends, where he encouraged them to make a donation towards CLCRF.

“When I first read that childhood cancer research had resulted in an increase to an 80% survival rate in the last 50 years, I was struck by how effectively research equates to positive outcomes for patients,” said Jack. “It prompted me to start a fundraiser to donate some money and start talking about how amazing this charity and the research it supports is.”

Although faced with number restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the BBQ was a huge success, raising a delightful total of $325. This comfortably surpassed Jack’s original goal of $250.

“Without taking away from many other worthwhile causes, I think any step we can take toward minimising the suffering caused by cancer in kids is particularly worth taking,” Jack expressed.
