On Target Tuck Shop raises valuable funds for local charity
Our team work hard and they like nothing more than a few naughty treats and chocolate bars to fuel them during the day at work.
So Katy Pamboulos, our On Target Office Manager, decided to try and put this desire to good use and support a local charity.
The charity Christopher's Smile was started after Katy's neighbour's nephew Christopher died just before his 6th birthday from a cancerous tumour on the brain. His parents having lost their son so tragically, started the charity to discover a treatment for children that get medulloblastoma in the future and to try and save more lives in Christopher's memory. The charity raises money to fund research into new treatments for these childhood cancers - paediatric brain tumour research is currently low on funding priority lists despite survival success rates being unimproved for many years.
Katy created an 'On Target Tuck Shop' which buy sweets, crisps, chocolate bars and biscuits in bulk and then sell them individually to our staff at a profit, to support this wonderful charity's work.
So far we’ve officially raised £3,207.24 since September 2015 for this charity!
