Teenage Cancer Trust

proud partners


Thank You

With your support - we did it!

Our partnership with Teenage Cancer Trust began in 2013 and after an incredibly successful first year, we've been busy doing lots of exciting things to make sure 2014 is even bigger and better! We're thrilled to announce that we've achieved our goal and raised £1,000,000!
The money we've raised has helped to:

  • Open seven new Teenage Cancer Trust units across the UK since January 2013
  • Fund 40,000 hours of care from specialist teenage cancer nurses
  • Give 300 Hair 4 U wigs to teenagers and young people with cancer
  • Provide over 60 scholarships for health professionals to develop their knowledge of teenage cancer
  • Support over 500 young people and their families by funding the Teenage Cancer Trust Family Support Network

  • Here's how we did it:


    We started out from Head Office in Littlehampton early in the morning and set off over the South Downs ending at Brighton Pier at around 8pm - walking 26 miles in total. Our aim was to raise £10,000, and we did it!

    Our Get Wiggy With It weekend went brilliantly and over the three days our store colleagues managed to raise a superb £27,000 in donations.
    If that wasn't enough, this and the other activities that the teams have been doing over the year have sky rocketed our current total for Teenage Cancer Trust to £800,000.
    So we wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone for all their support, help and donations that have made this possible.


    Teenage Cancer Trust's Royal Albert Hall concert series 2014 in partnership with The Body Shop.

    We were delighted to be the headline sponsor for Teenage Cancer Trust's flagship Royal Albert Hall concert series for the second year running. This is now a real cornerstone in the UK music calendar and this year featured stellar acts including Paolo Nutini, Ed Sheeran, One Republic, The Cure and a comedy night that showcased the likes of John Bishop, Jason Mansford and the legendary Micky Flanagan.

    Throughout the week long series of gigs we also ran our #SelfiEsteem campaign, donating £1 to Teenage Cancer Trust for every feel-good selfie we received. From these pictures we're now working on building a #SelfieEsteem wall in Teenage Cancer Trust units to show young people all over the country the support that was shown during the concerts this year.

    As well as donating to Teenage Cancer Trust with our #SelfiEsteem campaign, we matched donations made at the gigs and in-store which totalled £30,000 and held makeovers and pamper sessions backstage for some of the young patients attending the gigs.
