Christmas isn’t just about candy canes, holly or lights all aglow,
It’s about the hearts that we touch and the care that we show.
This Christmas that sentiment has never been truer at Warner’s, as this festive season we are donating all the proceeds from our 12 Days of Christmas annual giveaway to the amazing Young Lives vs Cancer charity.
No family ever wants to face cancer, but sadly this is a reality for many, with 1 in 2 of us getting cancer in our lifetimes. Young Lives vs Cancer is a charity who provide support to the young people and their families who inexplicably find themselves fighting a battle no one their age should have to face. They provide support through every stage, financial costs, a place to stay during treatment and bereavement, ensuring families can be together when it matters most.
Throughout December we will give away one prize to one lucky winner, for each of the 12 days leading up to Christmas, with tickets being sold at £1. We have raised over £300 so far, but we want to make sure that we continue to raise as much as possible, this really does make a positive difference to families during the worst times of their lives.
We were moved by the story of Martin and Tricia’s granddaughter Patricia, who in January 2019 at 4 months old was diagnosed with liver cancer. Within one month of diagnosis, Patricia was admitted to the ICU, and in need of a transplant. The whole family were left in a position they never imagined they would be in, with the uncertainty of what was to come. Young Lives vs Cancer provided a lifeline and a support to the entire family; helping them with everything from completing paperwork, to providing a home from home for Patricia’s mum, dad and grandparents near the hospital so that they could be near their little girl. By March 2019 Patricia’s mum had been accepted as a liver donor, with Patricia receiving her transplant in the same month. The charity had kept them together throughout everything, and now 3 years old and recovered from her operation Patricia and her family are doing well.
Tickets are available to buy in store or over the phone.
