Take a look at what we’ve been up to.
We are delighted that Nationwide Building Society has become the official community partner of World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.
This year, with the help of Nationwide, we want to get even more local communities, up and down the country, hosting their own Coffee Morning. Whether you decide to host one at a local scout group, nursery, village hall or fire station, we’d love to have you on board.
So host your own community Coffee Morning this September and help us raise even more money for people affected by cancer.
Tom’s Gift brings a moment of joy to children, aged 0-16, who need treatment for cancer. Previously available to children with a malignant brain tumour, it’s now available to children no matter what type of cancer they have and is a fantastic way to celebrate their courage.
It works by sending a special package in the post to the child, which includes a mystery gift and a £30 Debenhams gift voucher. This can then be spent in-store or online on anything that will make them smile.
To apply simply download this application form, which will need to be completed by the parent/guardian of the child and the child’s supporting health or social care professional.
The new NGS Macmillan Unit at the Chesterfield Royal Hospital is a state-of-the-art centre due to open in early 2017. We’ve got lots to do to make sure this happens on schedule, including having to raise more funds.
The unit’s main role will be to provide all cancer services and treatment in one place, delivered by a team of specialists.
A garden will provide a calm and holistic space where patients and carers can spend time and reflect during cancer treatment and after care.
Our Corporate Partner the National Gardens Scheme (NGS) has donated an amazing £1.5million towards its build. Local supporters have also contributed a fantastic £350,000, but we still need your help to hit our target of £2.5 million.
So please help us raise the £650,000 still needed by texting Centre to 70550 to donate £5.
