Families in Brighton are invited to join Dobbies for an evening of seasonal shopping on Thursday 30th November from 5-9pm, with tickets priced at £1 available in store and online now. 

To help raise awareness, vital funds and spread kindness, all proceeds from ticket sales will go to Teenage Cancer Trust, alongside additional fundraising efforts from activities on the night.

Cancer kills more teenagers and young adults in the UK than any other disease, and for those that are lucky enough to survive, getting the right physical and emotional support is vital for recovery. 

Every day, seven young people aged 13-24 are told they have cancer, and it's projected that by 2030 this number will be closer to 10.

Supporting Teenage Cancer Trust with donations helps fund specialist nurses and youth workers to be there for a young person that"s battling cancer.

Dobbies' CSR and Community Communications Executive, Chloë Bell, has been working closely with Teenage Cancer Trust to raise awareness of the fantastic work they carry out:

"Our late-night shopping event in Brighton is a great chance to gather the family, get into the festive spirit and support a charity that's making such a difference to teenagers and young adults across the UK.

"Last year our fundraising efforts saw over £100k donated to the charity, and we're hoping to top this benchmark with the help of our customers."

Tickets for the Christmas Shopping Night are £1 per person, with all funds raised going to TCT.
