TEENAGE CANCER TRUST:
WE DO IT ALL IN A GOOD CAUSE

Parkers’ relationship with our major charity partner Teenage Cancer Trust has flourished over the past 5 years, resulting in the donation of over £100,000 collected by everyone involved with our company.

Teenage Cancer Trust does not receive any government funding, which is why we decided to do our best to help raise funds and awareness and our hard working, dedicated staff have been unstinting in their support.

The charity exists to improve the quality of life for young people with cancer. TCT cancer units cater for everything young people need to be kept fully occupied and entertained during their stay and funds frontline staff such as Youth Support Co-ordinators and Nurse Consultants.

  • PARKER CHARITY GOLF DAY
  • CHARITY CYCLE RIDE
  • HALF MARATHON RUNNER
  • PARKERS' STAFF ON COLOR RUN

It was in January 2011 that Parker Building Supplies announced that in addition to supporting a number of local charities, schools and other worthy organisations, we had decided to name Teenage Cancer Trust as our main partner.

Initially we intended to choose a different charity each year but the choice of TCT was so close to home for so many of our management and staff that before long our team were running marathons, jumping out of planes, climbing mountains, losing weight and even growing hair in an endeavour to raise funds for this very worthy cause.

Here are some reports on just a few of our brave, determined... sometimes hair-brained... attempts to collect donations. Who could have known that just five years later our efforts would have raised in excess of £100,000? Here's to our dedicated team...
