FILM-MAKING gifted teenage cancer patients will have their film projects celebrated at an awards ceremony in Little Abington tomorrow evening (Friday April 4).

The Oscars may have been and gone, but the Teenage Cancer Trust (TCT) event should highlight just as much skill and dedication, if not with quite the same level of celebrity attendance, as its stateside cousin.

Tickets for the glamorous black-tie evening, including dinner, wine with the meal, entertainment and a disco, are £35, and all profits will go to the TCT unit at Addenbrooke's Hospital.

Comedy actor Christopher Biggins will be on hand as compère for the event, which will showcase films made by seven teenage cancer patients documenting their experience and road to recovery.

Chief executive of the TCT, Simon Davies, said: "I am delighted to be involved with the oscars and am really looking forward to seeing the talent on display. The Addenbrooke's unit will provide vital services for teenagers from across the region, and so I'd love to see as many people as possible coming along to enjoy the evening whilst at the same time raising funds for Teenage Cancer Trust."

To find out more or to book a ticket, call 01799 668132.
