FRIEND - TICKETMASTER
Ticketmaster UK have raised over £600,000 since 2013 by giving customers the opportunity to donate to Cancer Research UK when they purchase tickets online for selected concerts and events.
During October and November, this activity is expanded in support of Stand Up To Cancer, during which Ticketmaster UK colleagues take part in bespoke fundraising activities. In 2018 they took the fight to cancer by becoming Stand Up To Cancer’s first Corporate Partner to host their own Ultra White Collar Boxing event; this raised nearly £50,000.

Tiffany said “When I got diagnosed, I realized my whole life was going to change. It felt like everything I planned and everything I wanted was never going to happen. I have a motto now though “We Got This” and I wear this on my t-shirts and hoodies every time I go to the hospital, and so does everyone who comes with me – we’ve all got them!"
“The last year has been such an emotional rollercoaster – one day I can be so positive and the next day I can be crying all day. I had amazing support from my family and friends though – it is such a team effort and if one of us is down, everyone rallies round and we pick each other up to keep going.”
Tiffany has been sharing her journey on YouTube and Instagram (@tiffanythinks). By supporting Stand Up To Cancer, she is keen to help raise awareness of cancer and the importance of research.
“I wanted to share my story to help SU2C. You know your body the best – if something is not right, get it checked out. If it is cancer, you would rather have it diagnosed earlier.”
