ABOUT OUR PARTNERSHIP
We, at The Body Shop, believe that true beauty comes from the heart. For us, beauty is much more than a pretty face. It's about feeling good and doing good, too. That's why we're delighted to announce our partnership with Teenage Cancer Trust, the only UK charity dedicated to improving the quality of life and chances of survival of young people with cancer.
The year long collaboration will see the two organisations working together to help improve the lives of young people with cancer age 13 & 24. In this year, The Body Shop aims to raise £250,000 for the charity but it doesn't stop there. We are committed to making a real difference by going above and beyond fundraising. The partnership will deliver a range of activities for young people with cancer including make-up and skin care workshops in the charity's specialist cancer units across the UK and work experience in our stores.
The Body Shop is incredibly proud to be partnering with Teenage Cancer Trust this year. We believe business should be a force for good in society. We call this "Beauty With Heart" and our partnership allows us to bring this to life for our staff and millions of customers in the UK, helping to improve the lives of the many young people and their families affected by cancer.
