Charity support is an important part of Solutions culture, every year we select a charity to fundraise for. This year, we have chosen to support two charities close to our hearts - Teenage Cancer Trust (TCT) and The Little Princess Trust (LPT).
TCT aim to provide life-changing care and support so young people don’t have to face cancer alone. Currently there are 28 specialist units and teams of experts offering young people with cancer the support and care they need from the moment they are diagnosed. These units are vital to help ensure that young people have the most comfortable and stress-free experience whilst receiving treatment despite their distressing reality. They have specialists by their side whenever they need them whether that is for health support, financial support or any other kind of support that a patient may need.
LPT provide young people up to the age of 24 with real hair wigs after being diagnosed with cancer. The wigs they provide are free of charge, paid for by the sponsors that LPT receive, and are given to those who have lost their own hair due to the effects of chemotherapy. LPT aim to provide a wig as soon as a patient is diagnosed. This helps to reassure patients in advance of losing their hair that their wig will be ready in place for them to feel as comfortable as possible without the hassle of waiting around for one to come. Without charities like LPT, young people would not gain the confidence and support that they need when dealing with such awful illnesses, so this charity is vital for those who are in need.
To help raise awareness and fundraise for TCT and LPT we are continuing our annual tradition of entering Team Solutions in the Great Nott’s Bike Ride (GNBR) and take on the challenge of the Nottinghamshire countryside.
GNBR is taking place on June 24th 2018, where 14 Solutions employees will be taking on a range of distances, including 25 miles, 50 miles, 75 miles and 100 miles with thousands of other keen cyclists. This is our 4th year entering the event, so we have a number of experienced riders ready to take on the challenge and raise money for our chosen charities.
Last year we raised a fantastic £4500 for Nottingham Children’s Hospital who we supported throughout 2017. The Solutions’ team successfully completed the bike ride and we are excited to do the same again this year, with many dedicated staff members training for the event!
This year, we are hoping to beat £4500 and raise even more for Teenage Cancer Trust and The Little Princess Trust but we can’t do that without the help of our generous customers, business partners, employees and family, so we ask you to support team Solutions by digging deep for an amazing cause and a challenging event.
Just £30 could pay for an hour of care from a nurse who will provide thoughtful, sensitive and expert support to those in need. Every day, 7 young people aged 13 to 24 are diagnosed with cancer. We want do as much as we possibly can to help these young people overcome their illnesses.
