High street fashion retailer Bonmarché which caters for women aged 50 plus has been supporting Macmillan since 1999 and is on target to reach and smash £3 million.
Our amazing long term partnership with Bonmarché is now in its 15th year. Each of Bonmarche’s 265 stores and Head office really get behind the fundraising events.
One of the great ongoing activities held in stores throughout the year are fashion shows. Bonmarché invites their customers to an exclusive evening of fashion, with drinks and nibbles and a raffle for Macmillan. Some of these have raised more than £1,000 in a night and it is a wonderful event their customers love to support. They also annually hold their 'Go Mad Go Green' weekend and of course fully get behind our flagship event 'The Worlds Biggest Coffee Morning'.
As part of the partnership, we’re also delighted to have the support of the lovely David Emanuel – their celebrity designer and 'I’m a Celebrity Get Me out Of Here' contestant. David has been involved in a multiple sales promotions on scarves with a donation to Macmillan.
