Online fashion retailer, MandMDirect, claims it is set to give a significant boost to Teenage Cancer Trust by donating 10p from each sale of Official Olympic merchandise to the charity.
The discounted fashion and sports brands retailer is the official clearance partner of The Retail Park Venues’ merchandise, and has taken the opportunity to boost fundraising efforts for its charity partner Teenage Cancer Trust.
The donations raised through the Olympic initiative will help the company achieve their £1m fundraising target and contribute towards building more specialist Teenage Cancer Trust units within NHS hospitals that bring young people together to be treated by teenage cancer experts in a place designed just for them.
Siobhan Dunn, director of fundraising at Teenage Cancer Trust, said: “MandMDirect are now the charity’s longest ever corporate supporters and their enthusiasm and dedication to helping young people across the UK fight cancer since 2005 is hugely impressive. To raise a million is no mean feat and we are privileged that MandMDirect have involved us in this Olympic fundraiser.”
Jonathon Brown, CEO of MandMDirect, said: “Much of the focus of London 2012 has been the younger generation and we are delighted that we are able to use our new role as official Olympic Park Venues clearance partners to help raise money for the young people that Teenage Cancer Trust support. During the past seven years we’ve managed to raise over £900,000 for the charity through employee fundraising events and product donations, and we expect this latest initiative will help us achieve our £1m fundraising target by the end of this year”.
