New Giving Partner
The Dragonfly Cancer Trust charity is now an official good cause partner of Play It Green, meaning it will receive more funding for its work with families, hospitals, and hospices across the UK supporting palliative cancer patients from 0-25 years old.
Climate change causes social issues and this means sustainability is not solely about the environment.
Play It Green’s unique business model enables our members to not just reduce their footprint and repair the planet (through reforestation), but to regive to a good cause of their choice.
The northeast UK-based Cancer Trust works with specialist cancer treatment centres, hospitals, hospices and families across the UK and provides support for young cancer patients under the age of 25 with a palliative diagnosis.
Their focus is on memory making, helping young patients to make each moment matter with their loved ones.
You can read about some of the amazing memories created by the trust on their website (make sure to keep a tissue handy – inspirational doesn’t cover it).
They do this by providing Cash Gifts, keepsakes and creative therapy and their dedicated team of staff and volunteers are continuously inspired by the young people they support.
The good cause is the 20th to join Play It Green’s community meaning our members can provide support to a wide range of worthy charities trying to make the world a better place for their service users.
