Teenage Cancer Trust
Factory Gyms has chosen the Teenage Cancer Trust (TCT) as its nominated charity. The TCT is devoted to improving the lives of teenagers and young adults with cancer. The charity recognises and addresses the impact on teenagers of being removed from normal life (i.e. their fiends, school and environment) and placed in a cancer ward with very small or older people. The TCT works to ensure that more and more teenagers have access to appropriate treatment from teenage cancer specialists in an environment tailored to meet their unique needs. Across the UK the TCT has successfully built and funded teenage treatment facilities within hospital oncology departments. At present, the TCT is fundraising to build a cancer facility to treat teenagers in Edinburgh’s Western General Hospital. This unit will cater for teenagers throughout the East of Scotland. For more information on the TCT and Factory Gyms’ work to promote this important cause, please see TCT.
Factory Gyms is very lucky to have the support of many local businesses. In consequence, our permanent members benefit from a range of discounts at local bars, restaurants, hotels and shops. Check out our membership perks page for more details.
