VOXI by Vodafone partners with Teenage Cancer Trust and donates £80,000 to support unique patient care for young people

VOXI will make the donation to the charity on behalf of its customers, who can choose which areas of the charity they would like to support.

VOXI by Vodafone is partnering with Teenage Cancer Trust, helping to support their unique care for young people with cancer so that they can truly live their lives to the fullest.

The partnership will see VOXI make an £80,000 donation to the charity on behalf of its customers. This will be made up of a series of individual £3 donations which VOXI is making on their behalf. Customers will also be given the chance to choose which areas of the charity they would like the donation to support:

  • Places: Designed together with young people, the Teenage Cancer Trust units are spaces where young people facing cancer can feel at home, meeting others their age, and welcome friends and family, while getting the very best care.
  • People: Teenage Cancer Trust Nurses are specially trained in how cancer affects teenagers and young adults, delivering world-class medical care. Working alongside the nursing team, Youth Support Coordinators provide crucial non-medical support, focused on each young person as an individual, and not on their diagnosis.
  • Peer Support: Teenage Cancer Trust run events for young people with cancer, bringing young people together to share experiences, develop life skills, build connections, and have fun.

To get involved, VOXI customers simply need to log into My Account, tap the VOXI Drop button, claim their £3 donation code and choose the key area they would like to support on Teenage Cancer Trust’s website. VOXI will then donate £3*.

Teenage Cancer Trust exists to provide care and support for young people aged 13-24 with cancer in the UK. Operating 28 specialist Teenage Cancer Trust units in NHS hospitals across the country, their network consists of specially trained nurses and Youth Support Coordinators. They provide world-class medical care, as well as non-medical care to support young people with the impact of cancer on all aspects of their lives.

Long Covid and cancer: How your smartphone is helping scientists

Researchers are heading to their labs to test treatments identified by DreamLab as ones that could help people suffering from Long Covid and cancer.

Paul McKenzie, Director of Engagement, Teenage Cancer Trust said: “We’re so proud and thankful to VOXI for choosing to support Teenage Cancer Trust and our vital work with young people with cancer.

“Cancer kills more teenagers and young adults in the UK than any other disease. And for those who survive, going through it without the right support can be devastating – physically and emotionally.

“The money donated by VOXI will help fund specialist nurses, youth support teams, events that bring young people with cancer together, and hospital units within the NHS that provide the very best care and support during treatment and beyond, to make sure that cancer doesn’t stop young people living their lives.”

Scott Currie, Head of VOXI, said: “I’m delighted to partner with Teenage Cancer Trust for this month’s VOXI Drop. By giving our customers the choice to donate to three crucial areas, together we can help support the incredible work the charity does to enrich the lives of young people with cancer.”

VOXI is the mobile network for young people, offering contract-free plans that let you use selected social and video apps, endlessly, without eating into your general data allowance. VOXI Drop launched in January 2019 and more than three quarters of a million rewards have been claimed to date. The loyalty programme gives customers exclusive freebies every month from well-known brands.

About Teenage Cancer Trust

  • Every day, seven young people in the UK aged 13-to-24 hear the words “you have cancer”.
  • They will each need specialised nursing care and support to get them through it. Teenage Cancer Trust is the only UK charity dedicated to meeting this vital need – so no young person faces cancer alone.
  • Teenage Cancer Trust has 28 purpose-built units within NHS hospitals which are places where young people aged 13-to-24 can feel at home, meet others their age, and welcome family and friends, while being looked after by a dedicated team of specialists.
  • We run events for young people with cancer following their treatment. We bring young people with cancer together to share experiences, develop life skills, build connections – and most importantly have some fun. We give them all the information and support they need at a critical point in their recovery, on topics like fertility, nutrition, exercise, employment and more.
  • Teenage Cancer Trust is now urging people to support its latest ‘Stop Cancer Destroying Teenage Lives’ campaign, to ensure young people with cancer receive urgently needed specialist care and support, in the face of mounting pressures on the NHS and the spiralling cost of living crisis.
