700 volunteers in one weekend

That’s what it took to raise an incredible £85,000 at Argos stores up and down the country – eight stores raised over £500 each.

'Amazing to see bank notes going in the bucket! Very generous folks' exclaimed one volunteer.

The next big collection is in January when we're hoping to raise even more money. Perhaps we'll see you there?

How we develop and improve our services

Here at Macmillan our Evidence team work at gaining a better understanding of the number, needs and experiences of people affected by cancer. We then use this knowledge to improve, and influence the development of, cancer services. Thanks to our supporters we are able to fund our evidence research and projects.
