Andertons Guitar raffle raises over £117,000 for Teenage Cancer Trust

We are thrilled to announce that our fabulous supporters Andertons Music Co have raised over £117,000 of much-needed funds with a monster guitar raffle!

Fundraising Music and Entertainment

The raffle featured 20 different guitars & pedals, which have featured on Andertons TV over the last few years. The guitars have all been donated by Andertons, including covering all global shipment costs, so that 100% of the proceeds from the raffles can go straight to support young people with cancer.

Andertons has supported our work since 2017 with a number of fundraising initiatives, including the donation of musical instruments to Teenage Cancer Trust’s specialist units across the UK, but this latest drive is by far the biggest to date.

Andertons Music Co, a family run business in Guildford, is one of the largest musical instrument retailers in the world with over 25,000 different products for sale from more than 400 different brands. The Andertons TV YouTube channel gets over 1 million views per week, with fans in almost every country across the globe.

Lee Anderton, Managing Partner, said:

“Teenage Cancer Trust is an incredible charity, doing hugely important work. No teen should have to face cancer, and Teenage Cancer Trust  is there to help teenagers & young adults deal with the experience. Music has such a powerful way of helping people get through difficult times, and Teenage Cancer Trust has a deep musical heritage. I’ve pledged our commitment to working with Teenage Cancer Trust  going forward to ensure that every Unit in the UK has a top class musical facility for teens in need.” 

Paul McKenzie, Director of Fundraising at Teenage Cancer Trust, said:

“The money raised by the raffle will mean that we can continue to provide young people with expert nurses to support them through treatment, dedicated youth workers to help them cope with anxiety and isolation, and a virtual network of other young people to chat to. All of this makes their difficult journey that little bit easier, which is why we’re so grateful to the whole team Andertons Music Co for their incredible support.”
