September is childhood cancer awareness month. The colour is GOLD. Our town of Leigh on sea, once again, went gold. From shop to shop, posters and window displays all showed support on mass.

This spread out to Eastwood shops, Rayleigh high street, Shoebury, Thorpebay Broadway, Westcliff. Someone even spotted one of our Gold Posters on the main road coming into Southend on the A127 by BRENTWOOD!

The work of Gold Geese is spreading, we have had some referrals of more childhood cancer patients on treatment, under southend hospital. The feedback from our Gold Mums has started to come back and we are so happy that we are now able to spread some happiness and distractions in these difficult times.

So much thanks to everyone for getting involved. The monies raised and the level of awareness we managed to accomplish was really a triumph.
