Channel 4 has announced the production partner for its live television fundraiser, Stand Up To Cancer. Following a tender process, Fulwell 73 was awarded the production contract.

Stand Up To Cancer is a joint fundraiser between Channel 4 and Cancer Research UK and since its launch in 2012, has raised almost £40 million. Earlier this year, Stand Up To Cancer became the first live telethon to win an RTS award and to be nominated for a BAFTA.

Gabe Turner, Partner at Fulwell 73, said: "We are honoured and excited to have been given such a tremendous opportunity. Working with Cancer Research UK and Channel 4 on Stand Up To Cancer will be a truly humbling experience and one that we realize how privileged we are to have."

Ed Havard, Channel 4's Head of Entertainment and TV Events, added: "Stand Up To Cancer has grown rapidly to become one of the most successful and channel-defining events on 4. Fulwell produced a pitch for the 2018 show that was full of flair and ambition and we're thrilled to be joining forces with one of the most talented teams in TV, who are always a joy to work with. Suzi Aplin has for many years been at the heart of Stand Up To Cancer's success and she has produced award-winning shows that have raised millions of pounds, so it's especially exciting that she will be back in charge working with Gabe Turner and the rest of the Fulwell operation."

Fulwell 73 is an independent production company based in North London, and produces film, documentaries, commercials and television programmes across a range of genres. Recent releases include I Am Bolt, The Class of 92, and One Direction 3D: This is Us.

The Fulwell 73 team were recently joined by Suzi Aplin, who has been Executive Producer of Stand Up To Cancer for the last four years.
