Daltrey, patron of the Teenage Cancer Trust, says it has seen a “brutal drop” in income of £6million.

It means vital services may have to be cut.

The charity has 28 hospital units and employs 100 nurses and support staff for teenage cancer sufferers.

Daltrey wrote in The ­Spectator: “I recently called Michael Gove to let him know how dire our situation had become and to ask for government support.

“We need some dosh, I told him.
