Harry and Izzy spent the afternoon chatting with the young people and their parents, posing for photos and signing autographs.
Teenage Cancer Trust is a charity close to my heart. It is close to 3 years since I officially opened the unit here at Addenbrooke's and it is amazing to see what a positive atmosphere the facilities continue to provide to young people with cancer. It was, as always, really inspiring to meet such incredible people in such a homely and welcoming environment.

Strictly Come Dancing champion Harry officially opened the unit in 2012 with our Honorary Patron Sarah, Duchess of York. He is one of our long-term supporters, having visited a number of the units, run the London Marathon and taken on numerous challenges to raise funds for us.
Amy Chapman, Youth Support Coordinator on the unit, said: "It was great that Harry and Izzy were able to visit the ward today. Many of our young patients enjoyed spending time with the couple and the party itself was a welcome distraction from the day to day challenges of being in hospital."
