Join us in honouring the incredible Trekstock’s birthday.
11 years old!
And whilst we only became official breasties last year, during our #FeelYourBreast Campaign, it feels like we’ve known them for well - forever, and we’re so very proud to call an incredible charity like this one, our friends.
Here’s what the lovely Emma had to say ahead of their birthday celebrations…
“It’s thanks to our wonderful supporters like Lounge, that we are able to continue our vital work, and we extend a big thank you for all their support.
The Coronavirus pandemic has affected us all, but the young adults Trekstock supports - either living with or beyond cancer - have been hit harder than most.
Most are at increased risk and will be strictly self-isolating on the Government’s advice. They may also be anxious about the effect that the pandemic could have on their own treatment plans, and be feeling more alone than ever before. All of which means that the services that Trekstock provides are now more important than ever.” Emma, Trekstock.
It really gets you thinking, huh!?
Whilst you’re stuck at home, you may be looking after someone vulnerable in your family, thinking of someone vulnerable who’s isolating in another home… or the idea of lockdown as a vulnerable person may not have even slipped your mind.
Now, the latter is not something to feel guilty for… right now we’re all completely confused and trapped in a pretty weird bubble.
But it’s certainly days like today that give you a moment to think and listen...
"During tough times like this, Trekstock is so vital. Their support has been invaluable - their exercise and support programmes are keeping me moving and the team are there to guide me through the challenges I'm facing. Emotionally it's tough, but having this support to keep life as normal as possible has meant so much. I don’t know where I’d be without Trekstock”
Ellen, 24, Leukaemia, Trekstock Young Adult Ambassador.
So girls… whilst it’s Trekstock’s birthday TODAY, we’re joining them hand in hand and encouraging you to #ShareTheLove.
All you need to do is simply draw a heart on your hand, share the photo on your socials and donate to their appeal by clicking here.
It would mean the world to us here at Lounge, and to everyone at Trekstock too, if you can take the timeout to join their movement and make a difference right from your doorstep.
So go on, get a colourful pen out of your everything-drawer… and #ShareTheLove.
We all need that now more than ever.
Happy Birthday Trekstock! x
