The Tank Shop are giving 10% of our profits to charity each year! We know how hard 2020 was and 2021 doesn't look much better so we decided to do something special to help. Although overall donations to charity increased during 2020 a lot of charities missed out as donations were understandably aimed at the NHS. We will be splitting our 10% of profits donation between The British Heart Foundation and Cancer Research UK.
The British Heart Foundation have said - "Covid-19 has cut our ability to fund new research in half, at a time when hearts need help more than ever.
At the start of the pandemic, we closed all 750 of our shops, cancelled dozens of fundraising events and put countless plans on hold. But while the world has been on lockdown, conditions like heart failure, stroke and vascular dementia haven’t. They’ve still been tearing families apart, ending lives too soon and snatching away people’s quality of life. Our work is far from done"

Cancer Research UK have announced "that because of the devastating impact of COVID-19 on our income, we could be forced to cut £150 million per year from our research funding. Most clinical trials stopped with COVID-19, we stopped enrolling patients onto clinical trials. And that was partly because the ‘machine’ that supports clinical trials was switched to COVID-19, and partly because of the capacity of hospitals. So that’s had a devastating effect for patients who would benefit from those trials. And while the immediate impact of COVID-19 on labs, clinical trials and cancer services is clear, it’s likely to be just the beginning"
Covid-19 has slowed us down. But we will never stop
