The Teenage Cancer Trust has added another concert to its roster of shows at the Royal Albert Hall at the end of next month.
The following week will see concerts by Example (March 30), Pulp (March 31), Jessie J (April 1), an evening of comedy hosted by Jason Manford plus special guests (April 2), and Florence + The Machine (April 3).
Charity patron Roger Daltrey is proud to perform for the organization: "Every year Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall raises essential funds to support the charity’s work. I am incredibly proud of what we have already achieved and am inspired about what we will accomplish together.
“Within these memories of unique collaborations and musical firsts are the faces of the incredible young people I have met. Over the years I have met many young people with cancer and like Teenage Cancer Trust, I believe that they shouldn’t have to stop being teenagers just because they have this disease.
“They have helped me understand that they are young people first – cancer patients second and I am always struck by their enthusiasm, positivism and their lust for life.”
Eleven years of concerts have raised over £14 million for Teenage Cancer Trust, making a real difference to the lives of thousands of young people with cancer. All money raised has helped the charity to build more specialist teenage cancer units in NHS hospitals across the UK, allowing young people to be treated together with others their own age, in an environment suited to their needs.
