Sally Millington and Applegarth Court
Applegarth Court, a Housing21 development which promotes independent living and on site care and choice for retired people, have donated £100 to Macmillan Cancer Support.
Sally Millington, Fundraising Manager for Macmillan Cancer Support appreciates the donation, 'We are so grateful to everyone who has so generously helped to raise this money. With this donation, we will be able to reach more of the people who need us, and help them with the support that they need; whether it is medical, financial, emotional or practical support from our team of nurses, benefits advisors, and Macmillan professionals.'
The residents of Applegarth Court regularly hold fundraising events such as bingo and craft fairs and have donated £100 raised from their activities to Macmillan Cancer Support.
Steven Matson, and Sandra Brown from Applegarth Court, explained, 'The residents decide which charity to donate to, and this time it is Macmillan. We have raised the money through various entertainment, and different functions at the Court.'
