Trekstock Ambassador Ellen Bisci staged a 'Monday at The Musicals' event in support of Trekstock and Blood Cancer UK.

Stars of the West End, including Eve Polycarpou, Michael Dore and Laura Baldwin, performed a special concert in the heart of Covent Garden in June 2023, to raise awareness around the late effects of cancer, and to raise money for Trekstock and Blood Cancer UK.

We're delighted to say that the event raised an amazing £6,299.85 with going £2,518.56 to Trekstock! Thank you so much, Ellen - your hard work means we're able to continue providing physical and mental wellbeing support to young people living with and beyond cancer.

If you know Ellen, you'll know how much she loves musical theatre, and you'll also know just how much joy it's brought her over the years as she's navigated the after-effects of two cancer diagnoses.

Ellen was first diagnosed with Acute promyelocytic leukaemia (APL) at the age of 9, and then again at 12. Since then, Ellen has been living with the late effects of her diagnosis and treatment, including chronic fatigue, heart failure and intracranial hypertension

Ellen said: "I  think sometimes it's difficult for some people to understand that life is never the same after you have cancer. I just wanted to do this event to raise awareness and to bring my love and passion for musical theatre, and raise money for charity so it's honestly an absolute dream come true!"

We'd like to again thank Ellen, as well as all of the West End Stars involved in the production, the crew behind it and everyone who bought a ticket and made the night a brilliant success!
