Ryanair, Europe’s favourite low fares airline, today (18 Mar) presented Teenage Cancer Trust (UK) with a €100,000 cheque from the sales proceeds of all 10,000 copies of the Ryanair 2014 Cabin Crew Charity Calendar, which sold out in record time.
Following over 400 charity applications, Ryanair’s cabin crew selected Teenage Cancer Trust to receive the entire proceeds of the 2014 calendar and the funds will be used to support their 27 specialist cancer units for young people across the UK.
The 2014 calendar, featuring 13 brilliant Ryanair cabin crew, proved to be a huge hit once more while a behind the scenes ‘making of’ video, shot on location in Chania, also broke records with over 830,000 views on YouTube.
Ryanair’s Cabin Crew Calendar stars have now raised over €700,000 for charity since 2008, through their own voluntary efforts, supporting 7 different charities.
Ryanair’s Robin Kiely said:
“81.5m passengers will fly on Ryanair’s lowest fares this year where they will be looked after by our fabulous cabin crew, whose voluntary efforts have raised €100,000 for Teenage Cancer Trust and over €700,000 for various charities in just 7 years. Ryanair is delighted to support Teenage Cancer Trust, the only UK charity dedicated to improving the quality of life and survival chances for young people aged between 13 to 24 who have cancer. Our thanks go to all those who bought the calendar this year.”
Teenage Cancer Trust’s Louise Brooks said:
“A big thank you to Ryanair’s cabin crew, firstly for selecting us as their charity of choice and then for all their hard work in selling this calendar. This is a fantastic amount of money raised, which will go towards continuing our work with young people with cancer in the UK.”
