Coffee Republic helping to fight cancer

The Coffee Republic franchise has announced that it has teamed up with the Teenage Cancer Trust and begun a new nationwide fundraising partnership with the launch of a signature cupcake. According to the information provided, proceeds from sales of the Teenage Cancer Trust cupcake, which are available in Coffee Republic bars across the UK, will go towards improving the lives of young people with cancer. It has been designed by Lily Shepley (17) who is currently recovering from cancer having been treated at the Teenage Cancer Trust’s unit at University College London Hospital.

Teenage Cancer Trust understands that teenage cancer requires specialist care, provided in an environment suited to the specific needs of young people. So they fund specialist teenage cancer units in NHS hospitals that are designed to give teenagers the very best chance of a positive outcome. There are currently 17 of these units around the UK but the charity aims to build enough units so that, by 2012, every young person with cancer has the choice to be treated on one.

Teenage Cancer Trust Director of Fundraising said, “Everybody at Teenage Cancer Trust is extremely excited to be kicking off a three year partnership with Coffee Republic with these signature cupcakes. The money raised from these cupcakes, future products and staff fundraising will make a huge difference to the lives of young cancer patients across the UK.”

Coffee Republic Chief Executive Tariq Affara said, “Teenage Cancer Trust is an excellent charity with a vision that resonates with all our staff and customers which is, quite simply, improving the lives of young people with cancer. We aim to become a partner of the charity in the true sense of the word and will support them in any way we can, which includes raising much needed funds. I see this as a long term partnership and we have some very exciting ideas in the pipeline.”

Coffee Republic, one of the UK's original international style espresso bar chains, began franchising five years ago. Besides its network of franchisees in the UK, it can also be found in Romania, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Kuwait. (kbp)
