SOMETIMES they end up in tears but volunteers at the Laura Crane Youth Cancer Trust are aiming to brighten the Christmas of young people stuck in hospital.
The team at the Quay Street offices spend the whole festive period up to December 25 hard at work preparing gifts to send to young cancer patients in hospital.
And the letters and thank-you cards the charity receive back from the 13 to 24-year-olds can be very emotional.
Trust manager Pam Thornes told the Examiner of a particularly touching story from last year’s Christmas gift program.
Tinsel Tuesday on 13th December is when the whole team dress up in Christmas Fancy Dress to raise money for the The Laura Crane Youth Cancer Trust. Take a look at some of our photos from this year and last years Tinsel Tuesday.
Latest MEC Testimonial’s – ‘Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice’ & ‘The Laura Crane Youth Cancer Trust’
“As Office Manager for the Laura Crane Youth Cancer Trust ME Consultancy have generously supported the charity for several years, so when we decided to look for a new telephone service provider it made sense to approach them first to see if they could help us.
Paul Robertshaw visited our office and went through the savings we could make by changing provider as well as the stages involved and the timescale – all of which were spot on!
Paul organised everything, he kept us informed every step of the way and was on the other end of the phone if needed which was very reassuring. He found the best deal that suited our needs as a charity and spoke confidently about the services available.
I would definitely recommend ME Consultacy. Their professional and friendly service is very refreshing and we are delighted with our new provider and especially the savings we are making!”

SMileS Sponsers charity CD launch at HMV on Saturday 23rd July (1pm) in Aid of The Laura Crane Youth Cancer Trust
Just over a year ago, a small group of women – the Colne Valley Ladies Circle were trying to think of a new and unique fundraiser for the year. They had an idea one night, after a few glasses of wine (actually quite a lot), to record a single and sell it for their chosen charity. They somehow managed to persuade the local super league rugby team (The Huddersfield Giants) to sing with them and off they all went to the studio to record their chosen song ‘Keep on Moving’. An upbeat and cheery song, but very powerful and meaningful words if you think about what these young patients must be going through. (words at bottom of the post) Read the rest of this entry
