CRY Update 80 reports on all news, events and fundraising from September to December 2019.
September got underway with the Great North Run, as 50 runners representing CRY took part. You can read more on page 22.
To start October we held the 10th CRY Durham Walk, with 219 supporters gathering to raise awareness and walk in memory of young people. You can read a full write-up of the event on page 24.
Later in the month we held the annual CRY Conference, with CRY doctors and other experts sharing their new research. To learn more about what was presented on the day, go to page 20.
Then, to highlight November as always, we had CRY’s Raising Awareness Week. Our poster campaign was a great success, with over 350 poster packs being sent out around the UK for people to use as a raising awareness tool in their local communities. Meanwhile, over 100 people signed up for packs to take part in the CRY Great Cake Bake. You can read a full write-up of the event and see photos of some of the amazing bakes on page 26.
Along with some other exciting developments, including CRY receiving £165,000 to fund screening events from the Tesco Bags of Help Centenary Grant (more on page 17), there was plenty going on over the last few months of 2019.
For the first of her columns for CRY’s 25th anniversary year, CRY Founder Alison Cox started by looking back at a couple of key events from when the charity was first getting started. You can read Alison’s column on page 18.
