FUNDRAISING & DONATIONS
CHICS is a North West UK based children's cancer charity, providing information and support to children, and their families, affected by cancer. Our mission is to give cancer patients and their families the up-to-date information, practical advice and support they need to reduce the fear and uncertainty of cancer. As a charity, we rely on voluntary contributions (donations) and fundraising to provide this service.
Click here to watch a short video I put together showing some of the things CHICS do through the donations and fundraising. Sorry the quality isn't very good, but it was made several years ago using low quality pictures and I'm not a professional, just a CHICS parent doing this site voluntarily. The backing music was writen and performed by "Point of Issue", the band our son David was in when he was at school (aged 15) some 14 years after being diagnosed with ALL. David is now 25 (as of 2017) and continues to play - though he now works in I.T. - and has been in several bands and duets, performing gigs throughout Runcorn, Widnes, Warrington and Liverpool - including at the Cavern - and Portugal.
Although we all help on a voluntary basis, because they are our children who are ill or have been ill, CHICS does seek outside funding for two posts - CHICS Co-ordinator / Family Support Worker and a Family Liaison Officer. For further details please contact the CHICS office.
To make a donation by post please make your Cheque or Postal Order payable to 'CHICS' for the amount you wish to contribute and send it to the CHICS Executive Committee treasurer at:
Graham O'Hagan 59 MILTON ROAD, WATERLOO, LIVERPOOL, L22 4RE
Please remember to indicate which of the 3 groups you would like your donation to go to (the Liverpool Group, the North Wales & West Cheshire Group or the Wirral Group). All Donations are greatly received as this helps with the running of CHICS.

Giving & My Donate:
Could you hold a coffee morning, raffle, or organising a bag pack at your local supermarket, or anything to help us raise money to help continue with the service we provide and continue supporting our members. Have you, or your friends and family, got in your cupboards any unwanted gifts (e.g.: ladies, men's or children's gifts) that could be used in raffles or on a tombola (e.g.: wine, spirits, toys and toiletries, etc.) to help us raise money. Could you place a collection box in your local newsagents or pub? If anyone can help in any way (e.g. sponsored events, coffee morning, school non-uniform day, etc.) please contact the office or a member of your group committee.
Have you got any fund raising ideas? Are you interested in going on our volunteer list for our charity events? If so please contact the office or a member of your group committee. Our sincere thanks go to those of you who have already responded. Your support is very much appreciated.
Remember CHICS is here to give you and your family support - we are only a phone call away.
