Dorset Echo: Eyes down and ears open for trust fundraiser Eyes down and ears open for trust fundraiser

BINGO or a musical extravaganza – it’s your choice, but don’t miss out on a charity event supporting the Teenage Cancer Trust.

Talented students from Weymouth College will be hosting the Talent 4 Teenage Cancer event at Weymouth Pavilion this Friday. The fundraising day starts at 3pm at Weymouth Pavilion when it will be eyes down for bingo until 5pm.

At 7pm the music starts with Talent 4 Teenage Cancer, featuring among others Beckii Power, Ed Hintze, Patchwork Native and Francis Anyanjo. Alongside the music there will be a bar and raffle with lots of prizes. Tickets are £2 each and can be purchased from the Pavilion.

All the money raised will go towards the Teenage Cancer Trust which helps teenagers and young adults with cancer. A spokesman for the charity said: “We don’t believe that teenagers should have to stop being teenagers just because they have cancer. So we bring young people together so they can be treated together, by teenage cancer experts, in an environment suited to their needs.”

So far the charity has funded, built and maintains 27 units for the treatment of young people and has plans to create seven more.
