Easter Eggs-travaganza!

Children undergoing cancer treatment at the Royal Stoke Hospital, and their families, will be receiving a special treat this Easter after local Weight Watchers members donated a staggering 64 Easter Eggs to CCPA! Last week our Operations Manager, Rachael, collected them and quickly locked them out of temptations way in her office!

Cheryl Sedgewick, Diamond Leader and Coach Mentor for Weight Watchers said “Our members are always so generous, not only did my group donate eggs but members from other groups run by Amy Blout and Nicky Orton, also contributed. It’s been amazing to see how many eggs have been collected”

Rachael will be visiting families just before Easter to distribute the eggs to children, their siblings and parents. She says “I am really looking forward to taking the Easter Eggs to families – not only will it put a smile on the children’s faces, it will mean the world to our families to know that people care, especially for those whose Easter holidays will be spent in hospital.”

Fathers Day appeal

At CCPA we know that Fathers need support when their child is ill. They too need words of advice and practical support at this difficult time. That’s why this Father’s Day, on June 18, we would like to be able to recognise the role that Dads play in support their families and children with gifts on their special day.

You could either make a donation, helping us purchase a gift or donate items. It could be sports related, something geeky or perhaps a basket of goodies to whip up a delicious meal – we’ll leave that up to you! Give Rachael a call on 01785 283435 or 07982 426 142 to arrange to drop your donation off at the CCPA office.

Following on from the very successful Swishing Clothes Swap CCPA is launching a new event; The Posh, Party and Prom Swish. A glitzy event, it’s the place to find a party or prom dress on a shoestring budget!  Read more…
