What is the Teenage Cancer Trust Charity?
The Teenage Cancer Trust is a charity which has been set up to support young people who are facing cancer. They provide life changing care and world- class services to help young people so they don’t have to face cancer alone.
They have asked people to take part in “The Push Up Challenge” throughout the month of November. One of our fantastic colleagues is taking part! This challenge helps raise money and awareness, to help ensure they can provide these services for years to come.

What is the Push Up Challenge?
To take part in the push up challenge you must complete 3,000 push-ups by the 30 November. Our fantastic colleague Faisal Mustafa has decided to take on the challenge himself and is already at 2400 pushups. When telling us about his progress he said, “I can’t describe how difficult it is at this stage with fatigue to keep going after 3 straight weeks with no rest days.”
We are so proud of Faisals commitment to this cause. We asked why he decided to get involved in this challenge and he told us “When I came across Teenage Cancer Trust’s challenge, I read through some of their work and watched young people describe the help offered by TCT, including Farhan whose brain tumour relapsed in 2018 but was supported by TCT through chemotherapy to overcome cancer again. There are many more stories like this that I felt so moved by”
