RECENT EVENTS - Teenage Cancer Trust: Paul Weller

Monday 25 March 2013 - 7:30 PM

Paul Weller | Royal Albert Hall

Approximate end time 11:00pm

Longstanding Teenage Cancer Trust supporter Paul Weller will be headlining the 7th and final night of the 2013 series of Teenage Cancer Trust concerts.

On being asked to headline Paul Weller said: 'I’m looking forward to getting on stage for the final night of Teenage Cancer Trust at Royal Albert Hall. I’ve always supported the charity and have seen first-hand how hard they work and what a huge difference it makes to the kids. When Noel asked me to headline I didn't hesitate.'

Support on the night will come from the hotly-tipped London four-piece Palma Violets, known for their raucous live shows.

Teenage Cancer Trust is the only UK charity dedicated to improving the quality of life and chances of survival for the six young people aged between 13 and 24 diagnosed with cancer every day.  We build specialist units within NHS hospitals bringing young people together to be treated by teenage cancer experts in a place designed just for them.   We want every young person with cancer to have access to this specialist support, no matter where they live.

Traditionally treated alongside children or elderly patients at the end of their lives, young people can feel extremely isolated during treatment, some never meeting another young person with cancer.  Being treated alongside others their own age can make a huge difference to their whole experience.

Teenage Cancer Trust also educates young people and health professionals about cancer to ensure a swift diagnosis and referral to specialist support.  Cancer in young people is rare but we want young people to know the common signs and symptoms so they can seek medical advice if they are worried.

We rely solely on donations to fund our vital work.  You can help transform the lives of young people with cancer.  Visit www.teenagecancertrust.org to find out how.

Teenage Cancer Trust is a registered charity, no. 1062559 (England and Wales) and SCO39757 (Scotland).
