Nottingham born actress Vicky McClure and acclaimed film director Shane Meadows had their hard hats at the ready as building work started on site at our new specialist unit at Queen's Medical Centre Nottingham.

This will be a huge milestone for us at Brads cancer Foundation as this is where Brad was treated during his illness and why he wanted to start fundraising and raising awareness for the needs of this unit and facilities to help other teenagers and young adults going through the same difficulties as he was.

Brad started this quest 11 years ago and it is amazing to see things finally taking shape but we still need to carry on fundraising to get this unit up and running.

We need to raise a final £200,000 to fund the £600,000 five-bed facility that will provide care and support for 13-18 year olds diagnosed with cancer in Nottingham, Derby, Lincoln and surrounding areas.

Vicky McClure said:

“I was very proud when Teenage Cancer Trust asked me to become involved in the East Midlands Appeal a few years ago so it’s great to be back and able to lend my name to this final project also. Being a teenager is hard enough without having to face cancer. I have seen first-hand what a difference the charity’s units make and I am honoured that I can now call myself an ambassador.”
Consisting of two single en-suite rooms and a three bed bay, the new unit will bring young people together to be treated by teenage cancer experts in an environment tailored to their needs.
