Bakers Dolphin helps teenage cancer patients

West Country coach operators Bakers Dolphin donated a coach so that Teenage Cancer Trust could take young people with cancer from the South West on an exciting trip to Longleat Safari and Adventure Park.

The trip allowed young people, aged 13 to 24 years old to have a much needed break from their cancer treatment and as chance to meet others from the same age group going through the same experience.

Bridget Woodard, Teenage Cancer Trust Fundraising Manager, said: “We’ve been so impressed with the incredible enthusiasm of Bakers Dolphin to support the vital work of our Teenage Cancer Trust Youth Support Coordinator and would like to thank everyone involved. It was a great day out and a huge benefit to the young people who went to Longleat.”

Amanda Harrington, Sales and Marketing Director of Bakers Dolphin said: “We have been supporting cancer charities this year with sponsorship of the prostate cancer Run For The Future event later this month and a coach for those raising money for Penny Brohn Cancer Care at the Moonwalk.

“Almost every family is touched by cancer and it can strike at any age. The Teenage Cancer Trust does fantastic work with young people and we were pleased to be able to help by providing transport.”
