How can our readers become YouCan volunteers or therapists? Do you have any fundraising events coming up? YouCan are always in need of volunteers to help with the house, events, and in the office, as well as trained therapists to provide support to young adults through the YouCan programme. Please contact YouCan on 01732 844874, or email hello@youcan.org.uk to find out more. We always have a lot of fun events lined up. Our next takes place on 10th December. It’s the London Pantomime Horse Race – and it’s as wacky as it sounds and involves people literally dressing up as panto horses and running a race! The proceeds will come to us. To register, or for more information, please go to www.pantohorse.org. What is a YouCan Ambassador? What does the future hold for YouCan? YouCan have Victoria Derbyshire and Dave Berry who act as ambassadors for the charity, promoting what the charity does and raising awareness about young adults and cancer. This is essential in getting the charity’s name and work out to the wider public, as without donations and help from the people who give so much, we could not continue. That’s why we are so grateful to anyone who does choose to help us – it’s not just us who they’re helping, it’s the children and their families too and they are the most important ones. “If it wasn’t for YouCan and their amazing staff I really don’t know where I would be right now if I’m honest, which just goes to show that charities like YouCan Youth Cancer Support are invaluable for people like me during remission!” – Harry We want to continue working with hospitals and hospices across the region to support young people and their families. We aim to grow to support everyone who needs us.
