Shaylor Group Donates £35k to Teenage Cancer Trust

National contractor Shaylor Group is delighted to have smashed its target of £10,000 to donate to their chosen charity for 2015-16, Teenage Cancer Trust. 

Teenage Cancer Trust is the only UK charity dedicated to improving the quality of life and chances of survival for young people with cancer aged between 13 and 24. The company chose to support this incredibly worthwhile cause as one of Shaylor Group’s longstanding employees experienced the amazing service they provide whilst his son fought a rare form of bone cancer. As a result, the entire company whole heartedly threw themselves behind fundraising which has led to a magnificent total of £35,000 being raised in under 18 months.

On Tuesday 5th July Stephen Shaylor, CEO of Shaylor Group, presented a cheque for £35,000 to Emily Cooper and Lottie Kendall, Regional Fundraisers for Teenage Cancer Trust at the company’s Aldridge Headquarters. The funds were raised from a wide number of initiatives including teams participating in the Wolf Run, the Fred Shaylor Golf Classic and the world record breaking ‘Skydive For Stephen’ event in memory of Stephen Sutton.

Mr Shaylor commented “Obviously Teenage Cancer Trust is a cause very close to our hearts which is reflected in the magnificent sum we have raised as a company. Our big hearted staff and supply chain partners have worked tirelessly taking part in events and running competitions to raise the funds.”

On behalf of Teenage Cancer Trust, Emily Cooper added “We loved working with Shaylor Group. Their staff worked tirelessly to raise funds that will enable us to support young people with cancer. Thanks go to everyone at Shaylor Group for their incredible support and generosity.”
