A HUDDERSFIELD charity is hoping a special week will boost its funds.
October 10 to 16 is Youth Against Cancer Week and the Laura Crane Trust is the only UK charity now funding research into cancers which affect youngsters aged from 13 to 25.
Schools, businesses and groups are urged to buy and distribute the charity's pin badges and key rings.
They are available from all Outfit clothes stores or the charity's website at www.lauracranetrust.org
T-shirts are also available.
People, especially youngsters, are also urged to organise their own fund-raising events for the Laura Crane Trust.
Fundraising ideas are on the website or phone the charity on 01484 510013.
Around 2,000 young people aged from 15 to 25 are diagnosed with cancer each year in the UK. Around one third of them will not survive.
Laura died two weeks after her 17th birthday from a complex mix of four types of cancer.
The charity named after her was set up by her mother, Jacquie Roeder.
The money raised by the charity pays for research and also improving facilities for young cancer sufferers during their stays in hospital.
The Trust's patron is Zoe Lucker and celebrity supporters include Brian Blessed, Helena Bonham Carter, Jo Brand, Jack Dee, Stephen Fry, Harry Hill, Ewan McGregor and Amanda Redman.
