Family show support for cancer charity

A family from Petersfield has raised more than £10,900 for CLIC Sargent, a charity for children and young people with cancer, after it supported 18-year-old Peter Dawes when he was diagnosed with cancer earlier this year.


Peter was diagnosed with leukaemia in April, just before he was due to take his A Levels, and quickly started treatment at Southampton Hospital. Supported by CLIC Sargent at the difficult time, Peter’s family and friends have rallied around to show their support for the charity and have now raised £10,905.


The funds were raised thanks to Peter’s brother Ben Dawes and friends taking part in a local run, Ben climbing Mount Snowdon, fundraising by Liss Athletics Football Club and generous donations including one from Wilmott Dixon Construction.


Eager to raise even more to help other children and young people facing cancer, Peter’s family and friends are now training to take on the Great South Run as their next fundraising challenge.

There are still places for people to sign up to run the Great South Run in aid of CLIC Sargent. For more information, visit www.clicsargent.org.uk/events/great-south-run-2019.
