A HEREFORDSHIRE business is dedicating some of its profits to helping young people with cancer this year.

The Stair Guys Ltd, based in Lugwardine, has chosen the UK’s leading children and young people’s cancer charity, Young Lives vs Cancer, as the charity they will support in 2023.

Scott Jones, founder of The Stair Guys Ltd, said: “We are really happy to announce throughout 2023 we will be supporting Young Lives vs Cancer. They are a truly fantastic charity and we as a business will be doing all we can to raise as much for them financially and raise awareness of the work that they do.


To support them, we will be donating a minimum of £5 per staircase ordered through The Stair Guys Ltd throughout 2023 and will then present the charity with a cheque at the end of the partnership that will help more families facing a diagnosis of cancer.

Cancer turns families’ lives upside down, it’s so important that Young Lives vs Cancer are there from the point of diagnosis to provide all the support that they need so we want to raise as much as possible.

We can happily say that as of April we have raised an incredible amount of £1410 for Young Lives vs Cancer”

Tania Ansell, fundraising engagement manager for Young Lives vs Cancer said: “I’m delighted that The Stair Guys Ltd have chosen to support Young Lives vs Cancer this year.

"Thanks to their support, we will be able to help even more children and young people in Herefordshire find the strength to face whatever cancer throws at them.

"We know that 12 children and young people are diagnosed with cancer every day in the UK, and it is vital that we can be there for them, individually, locally and nationally. We rely entirely on donations for our work, so support like this is absolutely crucial.”

Young Lives vs Cancer help children and young people (0-25) and their families to face cancer and everything it throws at them. Their specialist social workers help families from the moment of diagnosis with emotional and financial support from helping to access grants and benefits to liaising with schools and employers, as well as being someone to talk to and to listen to what they need. The charity’s Homes from Home also offer a free place to stay nearby the hospital so families can be together.
