Hammond transport achieves £2000 fundraising goal in aid of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

Back in September, the team at Hammond Transport, along with their friends and family, took part in a charity walk to raise money and awareness for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. With a goal of raising £2000 for this extremely worthy cause, the team embarked on a five mile walk along the coast at Southend-on-Sea, starting their journey at Uncle Tom’s Cabin before reaching their destination at the Crooked Billet Pub in Old Leigh.

The five miles represented the average distance those with cancer must travel to hospital for treatment, which is why Hammond Transport pledged to walk the same distance.

In total 28 people took part in the walk which took place on the 24th of September and raised an incredible £2000 for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. This money is vital to supporting the important work of the charity, allowing it to continue to help children and young people up and down the country who are struggling with different forms of childhood cancers.

Lucy Kemp at Hammond Transport commented: “As a business we’re dedicated to supporting charities and organisations which are close to our heart, and this September we were proud to help raise the profile and raise money for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. This is a charity which is very close to our heart and our team felt passionate about giving back to this very worthy cause.”

He continued: “The five-mile walk took us along the Southend coastline – luckily the weather held out for us and everyone enjoyed the journey. To have raised our target of £2000 is the cherry on top, and we are delighted to have been able to donate such a substantial amount of money. I couldn’t be prouder of everyone who took part in the walk!”

Sadly, every year childhood cancer affects over 1,600 children under the age of 15. About 50% of those diagnosed are under the age of four years old. Many older children, teenagers and young adults are also affected with over 2,000 15–24-year-olds diagnosed with cancer every year here in the UK.

Cure rates for cancer in children are often much higher than adults, meaning that many children and young people can go on to live full lives. However, being diagnosed with a form of cancer, whether it be a brain tumour or leukaemia, can be a scary and upsetting time for the children and their loved ones. There is also very little known about the causes of childhood cancer, meaning that any funds raised help to fund vital research into cures and treatments.

The money will be donated to charities and organisations which not only fund research but also support children and their families who are faced with such a life changing diagnosis. These organisations rely on donations which is why it’s so important that they are supported by charity fundraisers such as this.
