The PASIC Christmas elves were busy this year spreading Christmas joy and happy memories for families living with childhood cancer in the East Midlands.

This is what we got up to:

The PASIC Christmas Party – 4th December

We were very happy to have our much-loved Christmas Party back after a 3 year break due to Covid. 44 families had festive fun together, and met up with friends from PASIC.Christmas partyChristmas party

 

Christmas at Wollaton – 8th December

Thanks to some generous free tickets from Wollaton Hall we were able to invite 20 people impacted by childhood cancer along to enjoy the spectacular Christmas light display.

Pantomimes across the region – 26th November – 23rd December

Nottingham, Northampton, Lincoln, Derby, Leicester – we were at them all this year!

81 families laughed out loud at the theatre. For many children this was their first time watching a live show.

Northampton Christmas Party – 22nd December

For the first time we helped fund and organise a party for children with cancer in Northamptonshire. These families usually face long journeys for treatment in Nottingham or Leicester. 19 PASIC families enjoyed festive fun closer to home with Family Support Worker Toria.
