City Plumbing/PTS extends partnership with Teenage Cancer Trust
In 2012, the Plumbing and Heating division of Travis Perkins set out to raise vital funds for Teenage Cancer Trust. To date they have raised a massive £2.3 million, over an eight-year partnership, and this week signed to support the children's charity for another year.
They are looking to raise even more funds this year to help young people facing cancer, through such things as funding expert cancer nurses or contributing to the build of a new specialist unit.
"The relevance of Teenage Cancer Trust to both P&H colleagues and customers alike is huge and I'm so proud of everyone who has been involved over the last seven-plus years, pushing us to this extraordinary total of £2.3 million," says Andrew Harrison, CEO, P&H.
"Having so many wonderful colleagues baking cakes, climbing mountains, hosting regional balls and golf days, running marathons, wading through mud and much more, it's somehow in our DNA! Working for this great cause which supports young people with cancer is a privilege and I am personally delighted to extend this partnership for a further year."
Jess Coombs, head of high value fundraising at Teenage Cancer Trust, adds:
"Our partnership with Plumbing & Heating is remarkable. Thanks to the passion and commitment of everyone in the branches, offices and warehouse locations over the last seven years, together we've raised an incredible £2.3 million. The continued and ongoing support means that we are ever closer to supporting every young person with cancer in the UK. On behalf of all of the young people we support, thank you Plumbing & Heating!"
