Tickets.com’s T.Cares Program Helps Raise Funds for the Princess Poppy Rainbow Appeal for Lifesaving Treatment
The parents of a six-year-old girl with stage 4 cancer…
In October, through its work with Milton Keynes Dons (MK Dons) Soccer Club, Tickets.com through the T.Cares program donated four VIP matchday tickets to the home game against Coventry in Sky Bet League One to the Henry Allen Trust’s Treats and Wishes program.
Through the global T.Cares initiative, Tickets.com employees seek to support the communities where they work and live – from charity fundraising and community service, to creating unforgettable experiences for those in need.
The Henry Allen Trust was formed in memory of Henry Allen who tragically lost his battle with cancer in October 2013. At the age of 2, Henry was diagnosed with Stage 4 High Risk Neuroblastoma MYCN amplified, an aggressive childhood cancer that develops in the nerve cells. In his memory, the charity now provides essential support and advice for families battling childhood cancer as well as creating special memories through its Treats and Wishes Program.
The family chosen by the trust were treated to a once in a lifetime experience including a full stadium tour pre-match, lunch, pitch side access and were on hand for the Man of the Match presentations after the game in Club Platinum.
Deborah, Office Manager at the Henry Allen Trust said:
“Team Henry would like to send our sincere thanks to Tickets.com for contacting us and providing this amazing opportunity. The Henry Allen Trust receive no government funding and rely purely on fundraising and donations and we were over the moon to receive such a generous donation, offering a family the opportunity to attend a MK Dons home game with the full VIP treatment. Our family had an amazing day out and made lots of magical memories together and we can’t wait to hear from Tickets.com again with future opportunities for our families.”
Commenting on the day, Natalie Jones, Internal Sales Manager at Tickets.com explained:
“The Henry Allen Trust and days like this embody the reason why we are so active in the local community through the T.Cares program. At Tickets.com we are all about the experience and it gives us great pleasure to give families going through such hard times a break from their struggle to create memories and experiences that will last a lifetime.”
