Ministry of Sound has announced that Teenage Cancer Trust is its first official charity partner. The club launched the new partnership in October with the first of many fundraising club nights, which hope to raise £50,000 over 12 months. The Our House Is Your House club nights will showcase some of the world’s best-known dance music artists and the first event kicked off with Defected In The House in November raising almost £3,500. DJ and producer Nicky Romero will be headlining the second event on Saturday 21 December and further club night dates in 2014 will be released in the following months.
Ministry of Sound will raise money for Teenage Cancer Trust through text donations, VIP club experience auctions, meet and greet competitions with superstar DJs and cloakroom and guest list donations.
Jane Ashton, Music Events Manager for Teenage Cancer Trust said: “This is Teenage Cancer Trust’s first ever dance music partnership and it’s a great fit. Not only is music a massive part of teenagers’ lives, but it’s at the heart of our work too. Teenage Cancer Trust brings young people with cancer together so they can support each other and our specialist units can become a home from home for these vulnerable young cancer patients. Our House Is Your House is a lovely interpretation of the work we do. Ministry of Sound’s support will help us continue our vital work making sure young cancer patients are treated as young people first, cancer patients second.”
