Wales

We're thrilled to announce that Principality Building Society has chosen Teenage Cancer Trust Cymru as one of its two new charity partners. Wales' largest building society will fundraise for Teenage Cancer Trust Cymru and Alzheimer's Society Cymru until the end of 2021.  

Teenage Cancer Trust Cymru works closely with young people across Wales who have cancer to provide world-class cancer services, life-changing care, and cancer support.  

Over the next three years, colleagues at Principality's 53 branches and 17 agencies will take on a range of challenges to fundraise for its two charity partners. In the past, staff have taken on events as diverse as bucket collections at Principality Stadium, cycle events, half marathons, and mountain treks! 

"We have chosen two charities, Teenage Cancer Trust Cymru and Alzheimer's Society, that are very close to our hearts and do great work in our communities," said Steve Hughes, CEO at Principality Building Society. "Colleagues at Princpality have always shown such amazing creativity and dedication when it comes to fundraising in the past and we're sure it will be no different over the next few years."

We look forward to raising more important funds for our two new charities, which we hope will help them to provide vital support for people who need it.

Debbie Jones, South Wales Teenage Cancer Trust Regional Fundraising Manager, said, "At Teenage Cancer Trust Cymru, we're delighted to have been chosen as a charity partner of the Principality Building Society for the next three years. Our partnership will help us raise awareness of our vital services in Wales to make sure no young person faces cancer alone."

The money raised by Principality Building Society staff and members will go towards funding our clinical nurse specialists across the communities of Wales, so that young people with cancer have access to our life-changing care in their local hospital, at home or wherever they live.
