The award is to mark and celebrate 15 incredible years of our shows at the Royal Albert Hall, raising money to help young people with cancer in the UK. Our patron Roger Daltrey CBE is the driving force behind these shows, that have had incredible support from both legendary music icons and up and coming artists. In 15 years over 200 performers have generously donated their time for free and the shows have raised over £20 million. These shows have played a pivotal role in our growth and profile, helping to take the number of specialist Teenage Cancer Trust wards to 28 and funding nearly 50 expert teenage cancer nurses and youth support workers.
For every young person with cancer that we support, there’s another we can’t and we need to raise £80 million in the next 5 years to ensure every young patient has access to the specialist care they provide. Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall will continue to play a huge role in helping the charity achieve this ambitious goal.
