In a press release, Roger Daltrey said:
So here we are, six months into one of the strangest times in living memory. Where everyone has had some sense of what isolation, even for short periods, can do to the state of our mental health. Without the environment and services that Teenage Cancer Trust provide within our NHS, specifically for this age group, isolation throughout their lengthy treatments becomes a strong possibility. Through Teenage Cancer Trust, the UK has led the world in recognising the specific issues that this age group with cancer suffer. Please donate generously to make sure this vital work continues through these difficult times.
I know things are really tight for everyone at the moment, our whole business is out of work. If you’re watching this on YouTube, understand this is there for a function—to raise money for a charity - the charity is desperately in need of the money to keep its services going. So, if you can donate even the price of a coffee, anything it will really help. I’m sure the audiences for these artists will be very high and if all of you just put $10 in, or £5, that would be a huge amount if money to get us through this year. Because we want to be there for you in case you ever need us, or your family ever needs us. Don’t let this virus destroy it.
