As if the smooth sound of Idris Elba voicing the adverts weren’t enough of a reason to watch it, Channel 4’s Stand Up To Cancer, which aired last Friday, was presented by Davina McCall, Alan Carr, and Dr Christian Jessen, and was the televised fund raising show of the year.

With the event being opened by Gwyneth Paltrow earlier last week in London, the star studded hordes are behind not just the one off live programme itself, but behind the whole UK movement of SU2C, which was brought over here from the USA by C4 and Cancer Research UK.

Not just raising money, but raising awareness, the live show was an attempt to not only let the viewers in on the statistics and facts of cancers, and show what can be done with more research and our help, but it was also to provide an excellent night of entertainment as well.

A host of celebrities and SU2C merchandise have backed this charity event for weeks, and as it’s all going towards a great cause.

You can donate any time too (and get the shirts!) as Cancer Research UK is always happy to accept donations, as well as Stand Up accepting too, so if you missed it, you can still donate whilst watching.

A good laugh, for a good cause – so make sure you get donating!
