Rachel Kirby-Rider, Director of Income and Engagement at CLIC Sargent, said:

“We are over the moon that our partnership with Metcalfe’s skinny is set to continue. They have smashed their fundraising targets and regularly donate popcorn to families affected by cancer who are staying at our Homes from Home.  
“We also have to thank Metcalfe’s staff for their own fundraising, including running and cycling which has raised even more money. CLIC Sargent is dedicated to fighting for young lives struck by cancer, and we are delighted to have Metcalfe’s continued support with this mission.”
