Herefordshire Business News: MandMDirect forms partnership with eBay to help Teenage Cancer Trust
A HEREFORDSHIRE company is closing in on raising £1million for the Teenage Cancer Trust.
Fashion retailer MandMDirect is to give a boost to the charity by donating 20 percent of sales from its Onfire clothing range through eBay.
Mike Tomkins, chairman of MandMDirect and patron of trust, said: “Teenage Cancer Trust does invaluable work and we are extremely proud to be supporting them again.
"During the past seven years we’ve managed to raise more than £860,000 for the charity through employee fundraising events and product donations, and we’re now looking to hit the one million pound target with this latest partnership.”
MandMDirect is the first major retailer to donate a percentage of their eBay sales directly to a charity on an on-going basis.
Funds raised will help provide specialist facilities for young people with cancer across the country.
