Celebrating the final £500k fundraising push
The new Sussex Macmillan Cancer Support Centre has come even closer to completion by reaching a major fundraising milestone - just £500,000 away from the target of £5.96 million.
As the fundraising drive approaches its target, the innovative information and support centre will soon be benefitting thousands of people living with cancer across Sussex.
Since June 2010, the centre appeal has raised over £3 million thanks to the many fundraising events that have taken place across the region. From coffee mornings to sponsored salsa classes and much more besides, the county has been busy showing its support and generosity.
Macmillan's fundraisers are delighted at the landmark: Sarah Coxhill, fundraising manager for Sussex, said:
'The support of Sussex residents has been vital to this project: we've almost reached our goal, so the region should be really proud of the fantastic sum that has been raised so far.
'We're now very close to the fundraising finish line, which is really exciting, but we need one last push to get there. Macmillan wants to make sure no one has to face cancer alone, however we can't reach that final target without the amazing people who fundraise for us.'
Work to build the £5.96 million Sussex Macmillan Cancer Support Centre is well underway with the demolition of Rosaz House now complete. The centre is on schedule to open in the autumn of 2015 and will provide all-round support for people affected by cancer. It will also offer a base for outreach and information and support services across the county.
