Since charity patron Roger Daltrey, frontman of The Who, curated the first Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall concert in November 2000, we have welcomed over 225 bands and artists onto our stage to perform in aid of the charity. These flagship shows have attracted some of the world’s biggest names in music and comedy, including Paul McCartney, Oasis, Kasabian, The Cure, Jessie J and Florence + The Machine.
Teenage Cancer Trust gigs at the Royal Albert Hall have raised awareness, support and over £24 million for the charity since 2000. The money raised means that Teenage Cancer Trust can give young people with cancer the very best care and support from the moment they are diagnosed.
The money raised has played a vital role in helping the charity to build, develop and maintain 28 specialist cancer units in NHS hospitals across the UK, with over 60 nursing and support staff. Money raised also supports Teenage Cancer Trust’s nationwide education programme to raise awareness of cancer and empower young people to take responsibility for their own health.
From every £1 that is donated, over 81p is directly spent on helping young people with cancer.
Right now, for every young person the charity supports, there’s another they cannot reach.
By buying a ticket to Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall, you are helping to make sure that every young person with cancer will be cared for by 2020.
