More about Macmillan in Shropshire
In 2013 Macmillan raised just over £460,000, so a big thank you to all those who supported us throughout the year to raise such a huge amount.
We have helped 218 families with grants, assisting them with fuel bills, clothing, transport and alike
We have two Macmillan funded GP’s who help other GP’s support people affected by cancer
Cancer Specialist Nurses working from all three hospitals, RSH, PRH and Gobowern
Seven therapists within the county are funded by Macmillan and a support Manager who covers both RSH & PRH seeing patients who need additional support. This post alone has seen 768 people from January to November 2013. We offer books, literature, and offer advice on finances to elevate people’s worries and concerns.
Two million people in the UK are currently living with cancer, and that is set to rise to 4 million by 2030. Through our services we have reached 1.9 million people, and it is our aim that no one will face cancer alone.
With more fundraising within the county we can spend more money on local services.

Campaigns - there's strength in numbers
Macmillan is campaigning for a better deal for people in Shropshire affected by cancer, now and in the future. We want everyone with cancer to receive the same level of care regardless of who they are and where they live.

‘It was such a struggle paying for prescriptions that I’d stay awake at night crying. The success of Macmillan’s campaign will help thousands like me. I’m thankful I was able to play a part in making change happen.’
