At Hays Travel Exeter the team chose our local Clic Sargent charity to support last year. Clic Sargent provides a vital emotional, practical and financial support to young cancer patients and families during and after treatment, and we take the information they receive about how cancer impacts their lives to the service providers and policy makers to try and make things better for the future. Jackie’s family have themselves needed this support and know how important it is.
In May last year, Jackie, Lauren and Ness took part in the Grand Western Canal Walk and raised £307 which was then matched by the Hays Travel Foundation to make a total of £614.00.
We also supported our local secondary, Westexe School who themselves held a sponsored walk in two teams in July this year. They started from two separate points in Devon and raced to walk back to school wearing Hays Travel/Clic Sargent t-shirts and were awarded medals and a winners team trophy. The event raised just over £1000 for Clic Sargent!
