Stand Up To Cancer UK returns this year once again and is set to air on Channel 4 on October 21st, 2016. Artists confirmed to be on the show include big names such as Britney Spears, Michael Buble, Boy George, Little Mix, Alesha Dixon, etc.
The success of the charity programme has brought in a great amount of help in the critical search to accelerate life-saving cancer research. As stated by Channel 4:
The money raised so far has been spent funding clinical trials, which aim to improve survival rates and bring breakthroughs in labs to the patients who need them. Over 9,000 people have, or are about to benefit from these cutting edge trials, and this is still only the beginning.
These big name celebrities have successfully used their high end platforms to help in cancer fundraising and since 2012, the collaboration between Channel 4 and Stand Up To Cancer, have helped reel in over £23.8 million!
The site specifically states that all 100% of donations goes to Cancer Research UK in support of the Stand Up To Cancer campaign – so it’s all or nothing. Any amount helps in the continuations of deep end cancer research.
