We all know that Christmas is a time for giving and here at Think Global Recruitment we feel it is of fundamental importance to give back to charities both at home and across the world. This festive season, we are honoured to be supporting The Teenage Cancer Trust by holding an online auction from the 15th to the 25th of November. We will also be hosting a bake sale at our offices at 93 George Street, Edinburgh from 12-2pm to mark the closing of the auction. We have pulled out all the stops this year and have managed to get our hands on Oasis memorabilia signed by both Gallagher brothers! This includes a signed vinyl of ‘What’s the Story Morning Glory’, the second studio album by the British rock band and a signed copy of the accompanying book. We are extremely excited to be able to have been given the opportunity to auction such ‘wonderwall’ memorabilia and to be raising funds for such a worthy cause!
What does Teenage Cancer Trust do?
Teenage Cancer Trust create world class cancer services for young people in the UK providing life changing care and support so that young people don’t have to face cancer alone. With 7 people between the ages of 13 and 24 being diagnosed with cancer every day in Britain, it is important that patients receive the expert treatment and support that they need. Teenage Cancer Trust works exclusively as the only charity dedicated to providing this support and treatment from the moment they are diagnosed.
How will this money help?
Throughout the year we have worked with several charities both locally and globally, raising awareness and funds to assist these charities on their mission.
‘It is absolutely incredible that we can support such amazing charities and continue to improve the lives of others throughout the globe! We are honoured to be hosting this silent auction for such an amazing charity and we know the money will mean a lot to a lot of people’. – Abigail (Managing Director of Think Global Recruitment)
The money raised from the auction of the signed memorabilia and from our in-house bake sale will go towards research directed towards why young people develop cancer and how best to treat it. This will help improve diagnosis, treatment and survival rates. It will also help to fund youth support workers, expert nurses and family support sessions for those in need.
So get bidding to make sure you don’t miss out on this fantastic opportunity and improve a few lives this festive season!
