The Body Shop Backs Teenage Cancer Trust

February 13, 2013

• UNITED KINGDOM: The Body Shop has forged a partnership with Teenage Cancer Trust, the only UK charity dedicated to improving the quality of life and chances of survival of young people with cancer. Under terms of the partnership, the two organizations will work together throughout 2013 to improve the lives of young people (ages 13 to 24) with cancer, according to the beauty company, which is owned by L’Oréal.

“The Body Shop is incredibly proud to be partnering with Teenage Cancer Trust this year. We believe that business can and indeed must be a force for good in society. We call this “Beauty With Heart,” and our partnership will allow us to bring this to life for our staff and our millions of customers in the UK, helping improve the lives of as many young people and their families as we possibly can,” said Simon Coble, general manager, The Body Shop (UK).

The Body Shop aims to raise £250,000 for Teenage Cancer Trust through a number of fundraising activities throughout the year. For example, The Body Shop is launching a charity single, “Beauty With Heart,” written and performed by British singer/songwriter Leddra Chapman.

In addition, The Body Shop deliver a range of activities for young people with cancer including make-up workshops in the charity’s specialist cancer units across the UK, and work experience opportunities in The Body Shop stores.

“There are strong parallels between our two organizations and we’re looking forward to an exciting year ahead. Cancer and cancer treatment can impact appearance in many difficult ways, including losing hair, dramatically changing weight, scarring, problems with sight or balance or even losing limbs. We know how hard these issues are for young people to cope with. Our vision is a future where young people’s lives don’t stop because they have cancer, and we want every young person with cancer to have access to our specialist care no matter where they live. The Body Shop’s support will be a powerful force for helping us achieve this,” said Simon Davies, CEO, Teenage Cancer Trust.
