Hello and thank you for taking the time to visit our page!
We are a team of 18 students from The Event Academy holding an intimate gig to fundraise in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust. Our target is to raise £4,000 by midnight on Thursday 16th May and with your support, you can help achieve this goal.
Our intimate gig consists of live music infused with comedy, food & drink and a raffle with exciting prizes to win! We want to celebrate up and coming artists from a mix of genres. The event will be hosted by an MC who will warm up and entertain the crowd between acts and introduce young vibrant artists to our audience.
Every day in the UK, seven young people are diagnosed with cancer. Teenage Cancer Trust is the only UK charity dedicated to increase the chances of survival for young people aged between 13 and 24. Thanks to Teenage Cancer Trust, 28 care units in the UK have been opened specifically for teenagers.
We believe no young person should have to face cancer alone, and want every teenager to experience the very best treatment, care and support. One in two people get cancer in the UK however, right now only half of young people diagnosed with cancer are receiving the support and care that they need from specialised nurses.
With your help, we can improve the quality of life for teenagers facing cancer. Teenage Cancer Trust puts the needs of young people first and has helped thousands of patients on their journey. We are all affected by cancer, whether you, a friend or someone you know has suffered from it.
How your donation can help:
- By donating £10 or a small amount, you can help teenagers to start their journey to beat cancer.
- A £25 donation could pay for an hour with a youth support worker to help young people get active, encourage them to socialise and help them gain control over their illness.
- Giving a £65 gift could pay for 2 hours with an expert nurse who understands the unique experience of being a teenager diagnosed with cancer.
- With every £1 donated to Teenage Cancer Trust, 77p is spent on supporting young people with cancer.
We would greatly appreciate you to give as much or as little as you can for this great cause. Every bit helps, and YOU can make a difference!
