C4C2019 Headline Sponsors announced!


We are absolutely delighted to confirm that Exeter Nissan, part of Wellington Motor Group, are this year’s headline sponsor for CLIC for Christmas which raises vital funds for CLIC Sargent. CLIC Sargent support children and young people with cancer and their families and try to limit the damage cancer does to their wider lives.

Sam and Frank Tiley of Ottery choir, met with Michael Finn, Managing Director, last year and told him all about the concert, the choir and the amazing work CLIC Sargent do. He took our proposal back to his amazing team who gave it a big thumbs up.

Now Sam and Claire have met with the team at Exeter and are planning the Christmas highlight with them. But not only are they supporting the concert, they are also going to be providing a brand-new Nissan Navara that Sam will be sat in for all to see when she has her head shaved at Bicton Botanical Gardens this year. (See here for more details on this …)

Nissan’s Emma Pretty said,

“Exeter Nissan are proud to be working with La La Choirs as this year’s headline sponsor.
We look forward to supporting Sam and La La Choirs at Sam’s Charity Head Shave Event At Bicton Park in August, Devon Schools Choir Competition and of course CLIC for Christmas at Exeter Cathedral in December.

We would like to congratulate all the finalists of the choir competition and wish them the best of luck. We look forward to hearing all of them perform at the finals in October.

As a company we are delighted to be supporting CLIC Sargent and hope that our work with La La Choirs will help raise not only money but awareness for a such a worthwhile charity.

Sam said,

“I am over the moon to have Exeter Nissan on board. It is thanks to companies like this that we can raise such phenomenal amounts of money with our annual Christmas celebration. The team at Nissan have gone over and above to ensure we continue to be able to support CLIC Sargent. Everyone at the branch in Marsh Barton has been so friendly and are keen to come along to the picnic to watch me shower the Navara with my hair!”

If you want to know more about Exeter Nissan or Wellington Group then you can find out here or come along to our Summer Social at Bicton Botanical Gardens** On Saturday 17th August at 11am.

Jordan Anderton, CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager for Devon & Cornwall, said:

“I would like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to Exeter Nissan, part of Wellington Motor Group, for becoming the headline sponsor for this magnificent event. Having a headline sponsor makes such a difference to the evening, it allows more funding to be raised to support young lives fighting cancer and their families. On behalf of everyone at CLIC Sargent and the families we support, thank you. We are so grateful for your generosity and are so pleased to have you on board.”

Last year’s CLIC For Christmas concert raised a phenomenal £21,254 with the support of Apple Taxis, Santander and all our other sponsors. We are hoping to smash that target again this year, though, and with Exeter Nissan on board, there is no reason why we can’t. Tickets for the concert will go on sale in October, so watch this space!
