Fundraising superheroes for Crumlin needed

Dear sir- I am writing to appeal to your readers to support a nationwide fundraising initiative taking place in all Argos stores in January in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust. In July 2010 Home Retail Group which owns Argos, selected Teenage Cancer Trust as its official charity partner until February 2013. As Teenage Cancer Trust does not receive any government funding, this partnership is a wonderful opportunity to raise money for young people with cancer.

All funds raised in Ireland will solely support the refurbishment of the St John's Cancer Ward at Our Lady's Children's Hospital, Crumlin. Teenage Cancer Trust is working in partnership with The Children's Medical & Research Foundation at Our Lady's Children's Hospital Crumlin, to create a positive environment for young people and their families, providing the best possible support in their fight against cancer.

To coincide with the launch of the latest Argos catalogue, Teenage Cancer Trust has been given the chance to bucket collect in every Argos store on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 January. To celebrate this occasion, Argos colleagues and our volunteer collectors have the opportunity to also become Teenage Cancer Trust fundraising 'superheroes' by dressing up as their favourite superhero.

If any of your readers are interested in becoming a fundraising 'Batman' or 'Wonderwoman' and can spare a couple of hours to fundraise at a local Argos store please contact argosvolunteers@teenagecancertrust.org or call 0044 207 612 0716.


Simon Davies,

Chief Executive,

Teenage Cancer Trust.
