Plumbs Dairy of Balsham is delighted to have raised over £115,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support. The company and its customers have been supporting Macmillan for the last 17 years.
Each spring milkmen and ladies deliver more than 9,000 collection envelopes to customers along with their milk, allowing customers to make a donation to Macmillan if they wish. Thanks to their generosity over £8,800 was raised this year, which is fantastic.
Money raised from the annual collections is used to improve cancer services. Every day in Cambridgeshire 11 people are diagnosed with cancer, and for many of them this is the toughest fight they will ever face. Macmillan want to be there to ensure no one faces that fight alone; funding nurses and doctors to help people through treatment and financial support to help with the extra costs a cancer diagnosis can bring. The leading cancer charity also provides emotional support and advice for people affected by cancer.
Justin Plumb said 'A massive thank you for the over whelming support from our customers yet again this year'
Macmillan’s local Fundraising Manager, Jessica Wilson, states: 'We heavily rely on the thoughts and efforts of people who give their time to raise funds for Macmillan and the ongoing support from Plumbs Dairy and their customers is really appreciated. Together the funds will help Macmillan ensure that no one faces cancer alone as they can invest in more services for people affected by cancer.'
