Daredevil Partners

We were delighted to be chosen as the Charity Partner for the John Lewis Partners at Welwyn Garden City last year.

The Partners really got behind us and threw themselves, quite literally, in to their fundraising activity.  Over the year, the fearless team took on a sky dive, walked over hot coals and broken glass in our fire and ice challenge, held cake sales, table top sales and hosted two card holder evenings at the store where shoppers could exchange a £5 donation to Teens Unite for some very festive John Lewis Gifts. 

Not only raising funds, the activities did a lot to raise awareness of Teens Unite as a local charity, and this in itself is invaluable.  While in the store we met some lovely people and had the opportunity to talk to them about the work we do.  On one of the evenings we were joined by Georgia, who lives in Welwyn, and has been supported by Teens Unite as she continues her journey following her brain tumour, she's a beautiful young lady, full of energy and humour, she always engages with people and is happy to share her story.

We are very grateful to Val, the Community Liaison Coordinator, and the Partners at the store for all their hard work.  They presented us with a huge cheque for £5374 which will really help us to bring together more young people facing the effects of their cancer diagnosis.
