The Fundraising Group/Committee Award

About this award

This volunteer award recognises a group of people that have made a special impact on their community and made their time matter by raising money and awareness of our cause.

2016 UK winner - Scunthorpe Fundraising Committee
The committee at the heart of their community

How many groups of friends can boast about raising more than £1 million for a single charity? Macmillan’s Scunthorpe Committee can, having raised an incredible amount of money since 1976. The group’s members are well known for their passion and drive, and they all dedicate huge amounts of time to help make sure no one faces cancer alone.
The committee hosts a calendar of events that brings the community together including gala balls, coffee mornings and fashion shows, as well as their unique annual Light up a Life service.

Scunthorpe is full of support for Macmillan and the committee plays a huge part in this. The committee members are wonderful ambassadors for Macmillan and regularly participate in local events and talks to raise awareness – the local community is a richer place for their efforts
