Teenage Cancer Trust and me
I’m Head of Marketing at London based estate agents Greene & Co, where each year the whole company pulls together to raise funds for our ‘charity of the year’. We were blown away by the amazing work Teenage Cancer Trust do and knew that our staff-base would be 100% behind supporting a charity that focuses so passionately on helping young people to get through their treatments while understanding their needs as teenagers.
We organised two big events – a family festival in partnership with the YMCA Crouch End Fun Run, which attracts over 5,000 people each year. We provided and ran a variety of stalls offering fun activities such as a 45ft long bouncy castle ‘challenge’, sumo wrestling, beat the goalie and face-painting as well as selling delicious cakes and Brazilian sweets with all proceeds going direct to Teenage Cancer Trust. Our New Homes and Investments teams also organised an extremely successful golf day for 72 players.
Both of the events helped us raise over £30,000 for Teenage Cancer Trust. In addition, more Greene & Co. employees are actively fundraising through their personal challenges, and we have marathons, skydives and ‘bake-offs’ still in the pipeline.
