Charity of the Month: Cancer Support Scotland
Giving back to Cancer Support Scotland
Having being diagnosed with breast cancer, Lydia Jack has found great comfort and support from Cancer Support Scotland, as they have helped her to rebuild her life. Wanting to recognise this and give something back, Lydia has decided to raise money for the charity so they can keep on supporting others who have also been affected by cancer.
So how is she going to do this? Lydia and her daughter Alex have chosen to do something daring and challenging. A skydive. Having survived cancer, she is keen to seize every opportunity, step out, and give something back.
She hoped to raise £1,000 and with 27 days left to go she has already exceeded this target.
Cancer Support Scotland provide care and support people who have been affected by cancer. The charity gives emotional and practical help by means of a one-to-one counselling session or community-based support groups and relies heavily of fundraising and donations to be able to continue this work.
