Royal Bank of Canada's Trade for the Kids, a global event in 23 cities across 4 continents, has this year raised more than £127,000 for Teenage Cancer Trust!

Beneficiaries, families and staff from the six benefitting UK charities were invited to the third London RBC Trade for the Kids Day. Globally, Trade for the Kids raised more than $3.8 million for 65 youth-focused charities.

Throughout the event, employees from the Royal Bank of Canada spoke to the children and young people, staff and families, who shared the positive impact of RBC's support on young people’s lives.

Linda Noon, Director of Fundraising for Teenage Cancer Trust, and Meg, a young person we supported through cancer treatment, were invited to speak on the day about how the RBC’s donations have changed lives. Meg was diagnosed with Lymphoma at 21 and benefited from the support of one of our Clinical Nurse Specialists.

Laura Pearce, Head of Partnership Management at Teenage Cancer Trust said:

We were delighted to be involved in Trade for the Kids again in 2019. This is a fantastic event which will help us make a huge difference to the lives of young people diagnosed with cancer. Teenage Cancer Trust are the only UK charity providing specialist nursing to 13-24 year olds with cancer, and thanks to Royal Bank of Canada’s support we are closer than ever to ensuring that no young person faces cancer alone.
