Newsprinters, Broxbourne has donated £600 to Teens Unite to sponsor one of the activities the charity organises to bring young people fighting cancer together.
Ten teenagers and young adults will enjoy an outdoor cinema evening watching the classic film ‘Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels’ in Stratford, London.
Debbie Pezzani, CEO and Founder, Teens Unite said: “The aim of Teens Unite is to bring young people battling with the long lasting effects of a cancer diagnosis together as often as possible. It is so important for them to meet others their age in a similar situation to themselves and benefit from peer-to-peer interaction and support.
We would like to thank Newsprinters for their kindness and generosity, we know the young people will have an amazing time.”
Teens Unite is the only UK charity to provide long-term emotional and social support to young people fighting cancer from diagnosis through to remission and beyond.
Newsprinters first demonstrated their commitment to the charity when they entered a team into Teens Unite’s annual It’s A Knockout event in June. After deciding to sponsor an activity for the young people, they visited Teens Unite’s respite home, Broxbourne to find out more about the work they do and present the team with the cheque.
Kieran Bullworthy, Finance Analyst, Newsprinters said: “On behalf of everyone at Newsprinters we are really pleased to meet the team behind this great charity and were happy to be able to provide a cheque to enable a teens day out. We hope they all have a fantastic time on their day out and look forward to hearing all about it.”
