Pioneers of Organic Health and Beauty Support The UK’s Pioneering Holistic Cancer Care Charity

For immediate release

Pioneers of organic health and beauty products Green People are supporting Bristol Cancer Help Centre, the pioneering UK cancer charity whose holistic Bristol Approach to cancer care offers help for mind, body and spirit to thousands affected by cancer every year, to complement their medical treatment.

Green People have announced that they are donating 30p from the sale of each unit from nine popular product lines (including a daytime moisturiser, organic soap and hand and body lotion), to the charity.

“We believe there is a natural synergy between Green People’s commitment to offer families a range of health and beauty products for an organic lifestyle, and Bristol Cancer Help Centre’s work to help people with cancer to play an active part in their health and wellbeing”.

“That is why we are asking Green People customers to look out for the 30p sign on our products and be aware that when they buy them, they will be helping to raise valuable funds to aid Bristol Cancer Help Centre in providing support to people affected by cancer,” explains Charlotte Vøhtz, Company founder

Bristol Cancer Help Centre’s Chief Executive Chris Head agrees, commenting:

“The growth of interest in healthy diet and lifestyle makes this partnership the right fit.” He adds: “We are extremely grateful to Green People for responding to the growing demand for their products, by helping us to help many more people coping with the crisis of cancer.”

Chris Head concludes:

“This support through the generous donation of 30p/unit sale on nine Green People top product lines comes in a crucial year when Bristol Cancer Help Centre is expanding the scale of all our services for people with cancer and their loved ones.
“One in three people in the UK can expect a diagnosis during their lifetime, so the help to improve daily quality of life through the complementary therapies, stress-reducing self help skills, emotional support and nutrition and lifestyle advice that the Bristol Approach offers has never been more needed.

“We are very grateful to Green People for their vision and commitment in recognising that few of us remain untouched by cancer, and choosing to harness their success to make a difference. Green People are helping Bristol Cancer Help Centre to realise our vision of giving every person diagnosed in the UK access to the support we provide – support which many of our service users tell us they find literally “life-changing.”
