New brand identity for CLIC Sargent & a £1.9m donation from People’s Postcode Lottery

New brand identity for CLIC Sargent & a £1.9m donation from People’s Postcode Lottery

CLIC Sargent has launched a new identity with a logo and message pledging the charity’s fight for ‘Young Lives Vs Cancer’.  

According to the charity, it follows extensive consultation with young cancer patients and their families and represents a new strong voice for young cancer patients aged 0-24.

It was created with the help of Warwickshire design agency Chemical Code and moves from a largely single-colour visual language to a wider, more flexible identity. The launch was supported by celebrity photographer Richard Young, who photographed Trent Julicher, 9, and Bradley Gudger, 23 (main image) who have both been supported by the charity, wearing its new brand identity.

has also announced that it has received a £1.9m donation from players of the People’s Postcode Lottery as the result of three draws.

The total was raised in October and will help fund CLIC Sargent’s specialist teams of nurses, social care workers and play specialists.

Two draws were held on 8th October and a third on 15th, with another draw still to be held in November, with the charity receiving a minimum of 30% of every £10 subscription to these draws.

Rachel Kirby-Rider, director of income and engagement at CLIC Sargent, said:

“The vital funds raised by the People’s Postcode Lottery will make a huge difference by providing support to young cancer patients and their families when the doctor says ‘it’s cancer’.”
