The money was raised through the sales of t-shirts designed by the former Oasis rocker.
“Those young people are inspirational, I hope that this makes a difference to them and that it has helped raise awareness of teenage cancer,” said Liam. “Teenage Cancer Trust is Pretty Green’s chosen charity and we will continue to support them.”
Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York and Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie officially opened Teenage Cancer Trust’s new state-of-the-art unit in Newcastle in May 2010. They were joined by The Who frontman Roger Daltrey CBE and local star Joe McElderry.
The unit is the result of a £1.7 million fundraising appeal and will provide care for 13 to 18 year olds with cancer from across the North East and Cumbria.
The new unit in Newcastle includes 10 in-patient beds and will provide a home from home for many young people and their families. Unlike ‘ordinary’ hospital wards, it has been designed specifically with teenagers in mind. It includes a recreational room, kitchen and dining area, a study, parents’ room and kitchen, a complementary therapy room and chill out zone plus access to media facilities such as the internet, TV and music.
