Retail Services ‘Hit A Six’ for Teenage Cancer Trust


Leading retail display business Retail Services based in Halifax, West Yorks recently played alongside celebrity cricket stars past and present to raise money for Teenage Cancer Trust as part of a major fundraiser at Shenley Cricket Centre and Denis Compton Oval in Hertfordshire.

Donning their cricket whites, five employees of Retail Services, which specialises in the design, manufacture, installation and merchandising of retail displays, formed a team which also included key personnel from DIY giant Homebase and captained by cricket legend Mark Ramprakash.

The Retail Services team came in second place in their qualifying group, as they competed against rival teams which were captained by class leading international cricketers such as Darren Gough, Alec Stewart and Courtney Walsh.

The team from Retail Services included Sales & Marketing Director John Earnshaw, Creative Director Richard Habergham, National Account Manager Chris Steeples and Operations Director Paul Waddle, with Merchandiser John Brown becoming the team’s hero by bowling out sporting star Phil Tufnell.

Commenting on their participation in the event, John Earnshaw, Retail Sales & Marketing Director said: “It was an amazing event to be part of, and we are delighted that we were able to offer our support for this truly worthwhile cause.”

Teenage Cancer Trust is the only UK charity dedicated to improving the quality of life and chances of survival for the six young people aged between 13 and 24 diagnosed with cancer every day. We build specialist units within NHS hospitals bringing young people together to be treated by teenage cancer experts in a place designed just for them. We want every young person with cancer to have access to this specialist support, no matter where they live.

Traditionally treated alongside children or elderly patients, young people can feel extremely isolated during treatment, some never meeting another young person with cancer. Being treated alongside others their own age can make a huge difference to their whole experience.

Teenage Cancer Trust also educates young people and health professionals about cancer to ensure a swift diagnosis and referral to specialist support. Cancer in young people is rare but we want young people to know the common signs and symptoms so they can seek medical advice if they are worried.
