Terraclean backs Teenage Cancer Trust charity
Randstad Ltd’s engine de-carbonising service, TerraClean, has revealed it has chosen Teenage Cancer Trust, as its headline charity for 2016.
TerraClean is a keen supporter of charity and the team and its network of workshops regularly carry out fundraising activity. At its recent conference, it raised more than £900 Teenage Cancer Trust.
Phillip Dowd, TerraClean sales director, said: “Teenage Cancer Trust is an incredibly valuable cause and we hope to raise as much money as possible for the charity. The services it provides are vital to many young people in the UK and we are proud to show our support, as well as promote the charity’s life-changing work across our network.”
With around seven individuals aged between 13 and 24 diagnosed with cancer every day in the UK, Teenage Cancer Trust is the only charity committed to providing world-class cancer services for young people in the UK. The life-changing care and support provided ensures young people do not have to face the challenges of cancer alone.
Scotlands Ash Garage, an independent garage from within the TerraClean network, has first-hand experience of how cancer can affect young people as its proprietor’s own daughter was diagnosed with a nerve sheath sarcoma at the age of just 20. Thanks to some pioneering treatment and the support from family, friends, the NHS and local authorities, Peter Welch’s daughter, Libby, is now fully recovered.
TerraClean hopes that its support will raise awareness to the work Teenage Cancer Trust carries out, transforming young peoples’ lives for the better. All money raised will be donated and will help to improve the quality of life and chances of survival for young people with cancer.
In addition to creating a variety of fundraising opportunities across its vast network, TerraClean will also emphasise the charity’s fundamental work throughout its communication outlets such as its newsletter, social media sites, website and presence at exhibitions.
