Wednesday, October 31, 2018 - 11:45

Iconic London venue, Central Hall Westminster played host to Channel 4’s live Stand Up to Cancer extravaganza, for the third time in a row on Friday 26th October.

The live fundraising event was broadcast live from the 2,000 capacity Great Hall to a packed crowd and was live on Channel 4. Hosted by Alan Carr, Maya Jama and Adam Hills, the spectacular seven-hour television fundraiser included comedy sketches, moving moments, music, celebrity appearances and more. The event was concluded with an announcement that £24.6m, the largest amount yet, had been raised.

Channel 4’s Head of Entertainment, Ed Havard, comments: “This has been the most successful Stand Up To Cancer campaign to date and we continue to be blown away by the public’s generosity. We’re incredibly grateful to every single person who donated and to the huge array of famous faces who gave up their time to be a part of the campaign. From all of us at 4, a massive thank you.”

 Paul Southern, Managing Director of Central Hall Westminster, added: “Stand Up to Cancer is a momentous event and we are incredibly proud to have hosted it for the third time. I am also very proud of all our staff here at Central Hall Westminster who have worked so hard to make this event the success it is.”

Stand Up To Cancer is a joint national fundraising campaign run by Cancer Research UK and Channel 4, committed to raising funds for translational research, accelerating new cancer treatments and tests to UK patients to save lives, more quickly.”
