Cornish clothing brand Celtic & Co has made its second £10k charity donation within 12 months.
Initially supporting Newquay Foodbank in December, the company has now chosen another charity close to its hearts – Young Lives vs Cancer.
Young Lives vs Cancer, formerly known as CLIC Sargent, offers vital support to stop cancer destroying young lives. But having been faced with serious financial problems due to Covid-19 and the difficulty to raise money with face-to-face events, the charity has had to decrease its team significantly.
Stephanie Parker, Young Lives vs Cancer fundraising engagement manager for Cornwall, said: “It has been an incredibly difficult year for everyone. Cancer doesn’t stop for the coronavirus and neither do we.
“We are so grateful to Celtic & Co for continuing to fundraise during these turbulent times. Their amazing fundraising will make a massive difference for young people with cancer by helping us ensure they are getting the right support they need during these difficult times.”
Celtic & Co MD, James Williams, added: “It is important to constantly raise awareness of charities in need, as they have had a very tricky year behind them. With our donation we don’t only want to help Young Lives vs Cancer directly, but want to encourage others to do the same so we can support people in need together.”
