The Trust takes its inspiration (and its name) from Stephen Sutton, who grew up in Burntwood and attended Chase Terrace Technology College, a partner school. Stephen was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 15. By the time he died, in 2014 at the age of 19, he had raised over £3 million for the Teenage Cancer Trust through his fundraising activities. Stephen inspired people all over the world through his words and actions. Through his incredible positivity, creativity, courage and ambition, Stephen’s memory provides us all with the best possible role model.
