Dobbies to support Teenage Cancer Trust as its National Christmas Charity Partner

29 September, 2015

To launch the Christmas shopping season and kick-start its national Christmas charity partnership with Teenage Cancer Trust, Dobbies is hosting a Christmas Charity Night on 8th October at all 35 stores.

Teenage Cancer Trust is the only UK charity dedicated to providing the best possible care and support for young people aged 13-24 diagnosed with cancer.

Tickets for Dobbies’ Christmas Charity Night are £1 and include a mince pie and mulled wine on arrival, with all ticket proceeds donated going to Teenage Cancer Trust. Money raised will support hospital units funded by the charity.

Andy King, Managing Director at Dobbies comments: “We had a selection of very compelling applications to become our new national partner and since our committee voted for The Teenage Cancer Trust; our colleagues have pulled out all the stops to make this our most successful Christmas charity partnership to date with a special launch night planned.”

The event takes place between 5pm and 9pm and tickets are available to purchase both in advance at Dobbies as well as on arrival on the night. Customers can also enjoy £10 off if they spend £50 or more on the night.  Dobbies’ varied events calendar also includes a Ladies Night in November as well the much anticipated event – Santa’s arrival.

Siobhan Dunn, Chief Executive at Teenage Cancer Trust said: “We feel very lucky to have been chosen by Dobbies staff for this special Christmas partnership. For every young person with cancer we support, there’s another we currently can’t reach. It’s the amazing support of partners like this that will help us reach our goal of supporting every young person with cancer. With all the festive fun Dobbies staff planned over next few months, we’re sure they’ll smash their target and help us provide specialist care and support for more young people with cancer.”
