Fundraising and Partnerships

2018 Charity Partnership

For the first time ever, Dobbies has chosen an annual National Charity Partner - Teenage Cancer Trust.


We hope to break previous charity fundraising records through an array of exciting fundraising activities over the next year, such as staff having a chance to win a duvet day and selling tickets for a Ladies Night shopping evening at Christmas.

The fundraising efforts will be led by a 34-strong team of Community Champions, with one in every Dobbies centre across the UK.

Around seven young people aged between 13 and 24 are diagnosed with cancer every day in the UK. They need expert treatment and age appropriate nursing support from the moment they hear the word ‘cancer.’ Teenage Cancer Trust is the only charity dedicated to making this happen.

Dobbies has raised an astounding £1,561,000 over the past five years for local charity partners, and national charity partners over the Christmas period.  However, this is the first time we will come together to support one charity partner throughout the year.

Do you have a passion for fundraising?

Teenage Cancer Trust has an amazing team of volunteers that try to get to all our stores to support our fundraising efforts at our events in October and November. 

If you're not far from one of our stores and would like to help raise funds to ensure that every young person with cancer has access to Teenage Cancer Trust's services, we'd love for you to come along. Signing up is simple and the charity will send you everything you need for the night. 

It’s a straightforward process and there are four different events to choose from – please take a minute to look at the role description here to find out more the about dates and events and click the button below to sign up.

Thank you for your support.
