Who the Froth is it? Coffee Republic steps up fundraising drive for Teenage Cancer Trust
09 Dec 2010
London, December 9 2010; Coffee Republic has launched a new competition, ‘Who the Froth is it’, to boost funds for its chosen charity, Teenage Cancer Trust.
Entrants must correctly identify the name of the celebrity in the froth to be in with a chance of winning a pair of tickets to Teenage Cancer Trust’s comedy night at the Royal Albert Hall next year, plus a range of gifts for coffee lovers. Full details about the text to donate competition are available in all Coffee Republic bars throughout the UK.
The specialist coffee retailer and Teenage Cancer Trust recently announced a three year nationwide fundraising partnership with the launch of a signature cupcake. Proceeds from sales of the Teenage Cancer Trust cupcake, which are available in Coffee Republic bars across the UK, go towards improving the lives of young people with cancer.
Every day in the UK, six teenagers and young adults are diagnosed with cancer. Usually placed on a children’s ward or with the elderly, young people often feel extremely isolated during their treatment. Teenage Cancer Trust understands that teenage cancer requires specialist care, provided in an environment suited to the specific needs of young people. So they fund and build specialist teenage cancer units in NHS hospitals that are designed to give teenagers the very best chance of a positive outcome. There are currently 17 of these units around the UK but the charity aims to build enough units so that, by 2012, every young person with cancer has the choice to be treated on one.
Each ‘Who the Froth is it?’ competition entry text will cost £1.50 and Teenage Cancer Trust will receive a minimum of 90 pence per text. For details of Coffee Republic bar locations visit www.coffeerepublic.co.uk
