The Young Voices Choirs and audiences will be encouraged to help raise funds for Teenage Cancer Trust during the concert series in 2018 and beyond.
Every year Young Voices selects a special charity to work alongside. The selected charity mirrors the values and goals of Young Voices – that music enhances life, that children deserve the best, and that teachers should be encouraged and supported so that they can develop an understanding of music in the children they inspire.
Ben Lewis, Managing Director of Young Voices said:
We work with over 150,000 young people every year who perform in our concerts, so I’m thrilled that through this partnership we will be able to help raise vital funds as well as create more awareness of the incredible work that Teenage Cancer Trust provides.
Teenage Cancer Trust makes sure that the seven young people aged 13 – 24 who are diagnosed with cancer in the UK every day, don’t face it alone. They help young people and their families deal with the many ways cancer affects your body, mind and life. The charity works in partnership with the NHS, providing expert staff and specialist units in Principal Treatment Centres for cancer, and bring young people together so they can support each other.
Actors and Teenage Cancer Trust Ambassadors Ollie and James Phelps said:
It's truly brilliant that Young Voices are partnering with Teenage Cancer Trust for their 2018 season. We've worked with Teenage Cancer Trust for years and know how committed they are to making sure that young people don’t face cancer alone. They provide world-class cancer cares and support in specialist units, local hospitals and homes across the country.
"They are there at every stage, from diagnosis through treatment and after treatment. Both Young Voices and Teenage Cancer Trust understand the magical quality music has to enhance lives and inspire young people – we’re so pleased to see the two of them working together."
