A landmark in rock music history, this new, very special recording of Mark Knopfler’s anthemic ‘Going Home (Theme From Local Hero)’ has been created to raise funds for Teenage Cancer Trust and Teen Cancer America.

Cancer is different when you are younger: it can be harder to get a diagnosis, cancer treatments may be less effective for young people, and accessing clinical trials can be challenging.

This project aims to raise funds for two charities dedicated to supporting this specific age group.

Teenage Cancer Trust funds specialist nurses and youth workers to be there for a young person when cancer has turned their world upside down, helping to ensure that cancer doesn’t rob young people of the best years of their life.

Teen Cancer America partners with hospitals throughout the United States to develop specialized facilities and services for teens and young adults with cancer.
