Boots - Cancer Information and Merchandise
We’re working with Boots UK to provide access to the best cancer information and support in your local community.
Cancer Information and Support
Customers can pick up information leaflets including 'Questions about cancer? Get clear answers', available free in all Boots UK stores.
The leaflet tells customers all about the partnership and Macmillan's national support services and how they can access practical, medical, financial and emotional support.
If you’re living with or after a cancer diagnosis, then physical activity can have a positive impact on your life.
For this reason Macmillan has developed a DVD called 'Get Active, Feel Good’ and a support pack. This is available from the pharmacy team in Boots UK stores and is free of charge.
The DVD offers a low level exercise to music programme designed specifically for people living with or after cancer, and stories from people describing how becoming active has helped them.
You can also order the DVD from Be.macmillan.
We have also developed the ‘Feel More Like You’ leaflet which gives you step-by-step take home advice for your skin hair and nails during cancer treatment.
You can order the leaflet from Be.macmillan or ask at your nearest Boots stores. If they do not have it in stock they will be more than happy to order it for you.
Customers can support Macmillan by popping into local Boots stores across the country and buying items on the countertop, such as pin badges and key rings. For a small suggested donation you'll be helping to support people affected by cancer.
These gorgeous friendship bracelets are our latest fundraising merchandise items and are available in all UK Boots stores now until 15 October. For a suggested donation of £2 you and your friends can feel good knowing that by wearing these summery bracelets you’re helping to ensure no one faces cancer alone.
Supporting Macmillan by purchasing merchandise helps us to fund a range of vital services to people living with cancer, for instance:
£50 could pay for 106 copies of The Cancer Guide. This Macmillan booklet can help someone recently diagnosed with cancer, and their families, understand more about cancer, its treatment and the help available.
£62 could pay for our phone service’s cancer support specialists to help one person claim the benefits they are entitled to.
