October may seem a long way away but the Kids With Cancer Foundation hopes that you will start planning your Halloween celebrations now to help them support sick children.
The Hills-based charity has launched its national Scare Cancer campaign and is hoping that local schools, groups and businesses will embrace the spooky theme.
Since it was set up in 1998, The Kids With Cancer Foundation has donated over $25 million to hospitals and families in need.Hills business NumberWorks’nWords has been a big supporter. Operator Tony Nguyen (pictured) said: “Every year, our tutors and students at NumberWorks’nWords Pennant Hills look forward to dressing up during Halloween week to support the Scare Cancer for Kids Campaign.
“It creates such as buzz in our centre and everyone gets behind it knowing that we are helping sick kids and their families going through some very tough times.”
Rachele Whelan from Kids With Cancer said they were encouraging people to hold a barbecue or morning tea or hold a street party with the kids to support the cause and help raise money.
“Kids helping kids is Tony Nguyen and his team amazing,” she said..
