Freeze out fuel poverty
Thousands of people with cancer are struggling to keep warm and pay their heating bills. With your support, the government can't ignore them.

Infi-knit thanks to all our knitters
The Knit-Bot machine's woolly petition reached 125 metres.
Since last November our Knit-Bot machine has been knitting non-stop to help people with cancer struggling to pay their heating bills. At the end of March, it cast off its final stitch, bringing the Infi-knit campaign to a close.
Thanks to your support, our woolly petition reached a mighty 125 metres, with more than 5000 knitters taking part.
Find out what happened when two Macmillan campaigners presented our woolly scarf petition to Greg Barker MP, the Minister responsible for fuel poverty.
