Teenage Cancer Trust - Supporting Young People with Cancer

 

 

Here at City Plumbing Supplies we launched our partnership with Teenage Cancer Trust in January 2012 and we are very proud to say that we have now raised over £1 million for this incredible charity.

Teenage Cancer Trust are a foundation that specialise in care for young people with cancer, providing specialist treatment, care and support across the UK. Around seven young people aged between 13 and 24 are diagnosed with cancer every day in the UK. They need expert treatment and support from the moment they hear the word ‘cancer.’ Teenage Cancer Trust are the only charity dedicated to making this happen.

 

 

Our charity partnership will now continue into 2016 for a fifth year, and will allow us to raise even more funds towards supporting young people with cancer across the UK. The £1 million raised so far will have an enormous impact.

 

 

It could:

 

Provide 20,000 hours of vital nursing care within a Teenage Cancer Trust unit

 

Fund 15,000 hours of one-to-one specialist support from a Youth Support Coordinator

 

Educate 12,000 students on the signs of cancer

  

Fund the activity budget for 65 Youth Support Coordinators for one year  

 

► 

Enable 32 young people to attend a music therapy workshop every day for a week at the charity’s annual concerts at The Royal Albert Hall 

 

 

The relevance of Teenage Cancer Trust to both staff and customers alike is huge, with many holding regional fundraising events in areas where we have Teenage Cancer Trust units.

 

 

 

The partnership is predominantly staff fundraising, with colleagues jumping out of planes, breaking out of jail, climbing mountains, cycling for days (and nights), hosting regional balls, running marathons, wading through mud, and much more!

 

All City Plumbing Supplies staff across the country are incredibly engaged - so much so that the partnership was highly commended at the Business Charity Awards 2014.

Managing Director of City Plumbing Supplies, John Frost, said:

 

"I’m incredibly proud that City Plumbing Supplies has not only met but exceeded the £1 million mark for Teenage Cancer Trust, and all within just 4 years. The money raised has and will continue to support the vital work the charity does, and I’m confident that we can once again rise to the challenge and raise even more funds for this fantastic charity in 2016."
