The fundraising event was broadcast live from Central Hall on 21st October. After a night of comedy, music and more, Davina McCall, Alan Carr and Adam Hills finished the seven-hour telethon by announcing that a staggering £15,700,222 million had been raised. This is the second time that Channel 4 has selected Central Hall for this prestigious event.
Stand Up To Cancer is a joint national fundraising campaign from Cancer Research UK and Channel 4 which raises funds for translational research, accelerating new cancer treatments and tests to UK patients to save more lives, more quickly.
Paul Southern, Managing Director of Central Hall Westminster, commented: “I am very proud of all the hard work the team have put in to make this a truly memorable event. It’s an honour to have been selected to host the Stand Up To Cancer event for the second time in a row.”
