I’ve supported The Teenage Cancer Trust since I first noticed that Roger Daltrey (an honorary patron along side the Duchess of York), was the driving force behind Teenage Cancer Trust Royal Albert Hall Concerts The first one being in 2000 when The Who were joined on stage by the likes of:
- Noel Gallagher
- Bryan Adams
- Paul Weller
- Eddie Vedder
- Nigel Kennedy
- Kelly Jones
Every year since then, Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall has raised essential funds to help the charity. Over seventeen million pounds have been raised in 14 years to support the work of the Charity.
The Teenage Cancer Trust
This is a wonderful charity that works hard improve the lives of our young people ages 13-24 with cancer to help get them the best care and support that they need, which can be totally different from those of young children or older people that have been diagnosed with cancer. These young people used to be lumped in the childrens ward or alongside old people and this is where the charity saw the need for a change. They realised that for a young persons physical and psychological well being they needed to be in a specialist facility that is build specifically for their needs, so that young people were not isolated from their peers but could be with other young people their age that they could relate to.
Body Shop Supports Teenage Cancer Trust Royal Albert Hall Concerts
Last weekend I noticed that The Body Shop has partnered with Teenage Cancer Trust and were offering a special promotion – where they said they were collecting kisses for the Charity, I thought this was just awesome, so I wanted to tell you about it.
The promotion reads…
“Come into store and have a free lipover with our Colour Crush lip collection, give us a kiss (on our special lip stickers) and we’ll donate 50p to Teenage Cancer Trust for every kiss we collect”
I came across this information by mistake actually, I was looking for some skincare vouchers on Voucherbox and saw some Body Shop vouchers it was then I noticed this promotion for Valentines day. Voucherbox is great, if you’ve not tried it, they have thousands of stores with many great deals, to check it out “click here”. Anyway I digress, as I read further down the Body Shop page I saw that they have been partners with Teenage Cancer Trust since 2013, they raised £500,000 last year, that is amazing! They have many fundraisers, allow donations, collect kisses, and even have a charity single – Beauty With Heart.
I didn’t realise that Body Shop Supports Teenage Cancer Trust Royal Albert Hall Concerts and that they were the headline sponsor for Teenage Cancer Trust’s Royal Albert Hall March 2013 concert series (not sure how I missed that). They are also doing the same for this year, which runs at the end of March.
Simon Coble, General Manager of The Body Shop UK said:
“We’re absolutely delighted to be partnering with Teenage Cancer Trust’s Royal Albert Hall shows for the second year, and are looking forward to bringing Beauty With Heart to life once again through this fantastic collaboration and exciting week of music and comedy.
