September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

September isn’t just about the Royal Adelaide Show and Father’s Day – it’s also global Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. And this year, the Childhood Cancer Association brings both together.

The CCA will be at The Royal Adelaide Show with a fun stall including colouring-in competition for young children. And the CCA has your ideal present for Father’s Day – buy a pair of their special edition dress socks, with all proceeds going towards services for children experiencing cancer, and their families.
