Many celebrities support us in a variety of ways; from being the face of the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning to helping us celebrate our centenary year, attending events or just providing a quote of support and a photo for us to use.
Our celebrity ambassadors go that extra mile to promote Macmillan wherever they can. Here are just a few of them...
