Global youth Travel Awards 2016
Best Social Responsibility Initiative 2016
In January 2016, STA Travel formed a global fundraising partnership with CanTeen Australia, CanTeen New Zealand, Teenage Cancer Trust UK and Teen Cancer America. It was the first time in the world that four teenage cancer trusts have been brought together to work on a global campaign, in partnership with a major youth travel company. The partnership engages staff and customers and aims to raise vital funds and awareness to support young people with cancer. In the first seven months of their partnership, STA Travel globally raised USD $90k. The funds will help the charities provide support services to young people and their families (such as education, workshops and counselling), purchase medical equipment within charity hospital wards and/or pay for nurses and counsellors.
