Dobbies teams up with charity Teenage Cancer Trust to thank local heroes of 2020
Garden centre retailer Dobbies, which has a store at Lynn, is looking to say thanks to people who have gone above and beyond for their local community this year.
Dobbies has teamed up with its national charity partner, Teenage Cancer Trust, for this campaign as together they aim to give local heroes a Christmas to remember.
Graeme Jenkins, CEO at Dobbies, said: “With everything from gifts and decorations to trees and festive food, we’re not your average garden centre when it comes to Christmas. It’s a magical time of the year at Dobbies Kings Lynn and, together with Teenage Cancer Trust, we want to celebrate the people who have been spreading joy all year long by giving them gifts they’ll love.”
There will be up to 50 gifts each worth £100, thanking those who really deserve a Christmas treat. There will be the chance to select a gift that the nominee will love from festive decorations, gardening items, foodie treats and more.
Laura Pearce, head of partnership management at Teenage Cancer Trust, said: “It’s been a turbulent and isolating year for all of us, so we’re delighted to come together with Dobbies to celebrate some of the local heroes who’ve helped make 2020 a little brighter.
“This Christmas will be especially difficult for young people with cancer, many of whom are still particularly at risk from coronavirus. Dobbies ongoing support for Teenage Cancer Trust is helping us make sure that young people don’t face cancer alone, this Christmas or in the future.”
