The activities – organised by Teenage Cancer Trust Youth Support Co-ordinator Steve Harcourt – have been praised by those attending, with Eugenie even quipping she would love to have a game of bingo.
Speaking with Beatrice and Eugenie, Caitlin Wilde, 18, who has finished treatment but has ongoing complications related to a previous stem cell transplant said: “Steve’s been putting on online bingo and all sorts and to begin with I thought, I don’t want to do it, I thought it would be a bit cringe! But taking part has been a lot of fun.”
Jack Fielding, 25, from Bolton, added: “You actively look forward to these events as well. For me they’ve really been a lifeline.”
Speaking about the call Princess Eugenie said: “To hear from these young people was an honour and a privilege, and to hear how Teenage Cancer Trust has been adapting to support them online during this crisis is truly inspiring.
