Morrisons, Eccles Charity Day: The fantastic team at Morrisons led by Sue, hosted a charity day in aid of Kidscan, going all out to raise awareness for us during Childhood Cancer Awareness month.  

All the staff got involved holding a raffle, selling Kidscan merchandise and gold badges. We are very grateful for all the support that the team showed Kidscan raising whopping £529 on the day, plus the Morrisons Fund will kindly matchfund this, so it’s a total of over £1000 from Morrisons. This will pay for 100 hours of vital research so it’s a huge – THANK YOU !! 

One Stop Shop, Urmston: Liz and all the staff at One Stop got into the swing of things holding fancy-dress day at work! 

Customers were invited to try win on the raffle or to buy our gold pin badges and wristband, raising £190 for Kidscan. Well Done to everyone! 

Roe Green Residents group: The wonderful residents of Roe Green, Worsley have joined a regular Lucky Numbers Draw raising money for Kidscan every week! Kev Wrighttheir local postman and a fantastic support of Kidscan, set it up. He’s raised money for us in the past and wanted to get involved again as our charity is close to his heart.  

Kev and the residents have raised £700 so far since August and with £75 coming in every weekthis figure is set to climb. We are so grateful for people like Kev and thank you to everyone who takes part and supports Kidscan!

On top of this he decided to dye his hair and moustache PURPLE! His current total is £301 but hasn’t stopped yet. What a smashing guy and we think the colour suits him. Thank you, Barry, for being a great sport!

Isla and her mum Jill hit the park and the local community around Roe green raising money while getting fresh air and exercise!

Amy and her mum Faye have been busy bees selling our badges while her dad handed them into the police station. Luckily, he is a police officer and his colleagues were happy to buy! 

Theo is currently on Ward 84 awaiting a bone marrow transplant and receiving intensive chemotherapy. But along with his mum Katt, he has continued to support Kidscan raising £670 selling pin badgesDespite Theo being very poorly he still has a wonderful smile for everyone.
