Dr.PAWPAW donates £50,000 to Teenage Cancer Trust

Dr.PAWPAW has donated £50,000 to its official 2020/2021 charity partner, Teenage Cancer Trust.

The donation comes after the multi-tasking beauty brand launched is first collaborative product – the Dr.PAWPAW X Teenage Cancer Trust Shimmer Balm. 15p from each sale of this product are being donated to the charity, in addition to a percentage of the brand’s annual sales. 

Four moving stories from young people helped by Teenage Cancer Trust feature on the back of the Dr.PAWPAW X Teenage Cancer Trust Shimmer Balm packaging. These highlight the amazing support of the charity’s nurses, youth support teams and special hospital wards that help ensure no young person goes through cancer alone.

These stories will be replaced this month with four new stories from young people helped by the charity, and provide a platform for these inspiring journeys to be shared around the world.

Alongside the monetary donation, Dr.PAWPAW founders Johnny and Pauline Paterson also participate in internal workshops and events, providing business advice for young people who have faced setbacks or now have a lack of confidence due to their struggle with cancer. They also help the partnership team in locating and encouraging new brands and businesses to come on board as partners.

In October 2021, Johnny further supported the partnership by running the Virgin Money London Marathon, raising £6,103.31 for the amazing work the Teenage Cancer Trust does. 

Johnny Says: “It is really important to us both and our team that we contribute and strive to do good. We wanted to work with Teenage Cancer Trust for some time and admire the work they do for young people with cancer, who deserve to enjoy life in spite of their illness, and we are proud to be supporting an organisation who strives to deliver to our younger generation in this way. The partnership has been amazing for all involved since the very beginning and I am delighted to be able to donate the £50,000 that truly will help them going forward continue with their great work.”

Stefanie Allen, Partnership Manager at Teenage Cancer Trust, adds: “A massive thank you to DR.PAWPAW for the incredible amount they’ve raised since joining us as a charity partner last year. They have been fantastic, supporting Teenage Cancer Trust in so many ways. From the sale of products, raising sponsorship and supporting with various internal projects to support young people with cancer, they really have gone above and beyond. I think I speak on behalf of everyone when I say that we are absolutely thrilled that Teenage Cancer Trust will continue to be Dr.PAWPAW’s charity partner through the sale of the award-winning Dr.PAWPAW Shimmer Balm.”
