22/04/08 – Concert for the Teenage Cancer Trust 12th July 2008

Amy Felthouse writes “I am in involved in organising a charity concert for Teenage Cancer Trust. We need as many singers to take part as possible, so I am hoping that you might put some information on your website. All the details to register for the concert are in the info below. Please pass this info onto as many people as you can. If people can’t make it, they can still make a donation to Teenage Cancer Trust, please see the link below.”

On Saturday 12th July 2008 five hundred singers will come together at The Bushell Hall, Solihull School to rehearse and then perform a one-off concert of songs from the stage and screen. With every singer sponsored £20 to take part, the goal is to raise at least £10,000 in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust (TCT). TCT is the only charity specifically dedicated to building and equipping units for young people suffering from cancer, Hodgkin’s disease, leukaemia and related problems.
We are inviting music lovers from across Warwickshire and the Midlands to be part of the D Concert cast, and would very much like you to be there and take part in what is sure to be one of the most exciting Concert events on this calendar. Please circulate the attached flyer to as many people as you feel may be interested in being part of the D Concert cast.

All details are available on-line at including application forms and information about the venue and the concert itself.

Six teenagers are diagnosed with cancer each day, that’s over 2,000 every year. But these young patients don’t stop being teenagers just because they get cancer. Teenage Cancer Trust ensures that young cancer patients get the best possible care in hospital and the chance to do all the things that other teenagers do. TCT funds specialist teenage cancer units in NHS hospitals, with the aim being to give every young person with cancer access to a unit and improve survival rates – which means opening a further 14 units by 2012. TCT currently has 8 units around the country. It costs around £2million to open a new unit, all of which the charity has to raise.
We very much look forward to hearing from you.
