Adding to our ongoing charitable contributions, Teenage Cancer Trust is our official 2020/2021 charity partner. Teenage Cancer Trust is the only charity in the UK dedicated to meeting the unique and complex needs of teenagers and young adults with cancer. They have been doing so for the past 30 years through their award-winning specialist nurses and support staff, as well as their 28 state of the art hospital wards within NHS Hospitals.
In support of our charity partnership, meet Dr.PAWPAW Shimmer Balm! 15p from the sale of each Dr.PAWPAW Shimmer Balm will go to Teenage Cancer Trust. In addition, a % of all annual sales will be donated to help support the incredible work the charity delivers. Four moving stories from young people helped by Teenage Cancer Trust feature on the back of the Dr.PAWPAW Shimmer Balm packaging, highlighting the amazing work of the charity’s nurses, youth support teams and special hospital wards that help ensure no young person goes through cancer alone.
…a UK national charity for single homeless people. Crisis was formed in 1967, as an urgent response to the growing homelessness crisis. Since then they have helped tens of thousands of people out of homelessness and campaigned for change.
The charity now offers year-round education, employment, housing and well-being services. We are working closely with the team at Crisis to help end homelessness.
…our suppliers have joined forces with The Ghanaian Women Project, who have developed an environmentally friendly, socially equal and therefore a sustainable model to supply Shea Butter.
The Ghanaian Women’s project also helps financially support communities and has drastically increased communities and projects that are protecting some of the last remaining biodiversity rich areas of the West African Savannah including the Shea Parkland and the hippos of the Black Volta River which runs alongside north west Ghana.
