2017 UK winner - Holmfirth Committee
The fantastic team of friends making a phenomenal contribution

Since its foundation in 1961, the Holmfirth Committee has gone onto raise almost £1.3 million for Macmillan and become one of our most successful fundraising committees. Throughout 2015, the committee was without a Chair, but this didn’t hamper its fundraising ability thanks to the group’s winning combination of dedication, teamwork, and friendship.

The committee always garners extraordinary support locally due to its deep roots within the community, and its flagship event – Holmfirth Artweek – celebrated it's 50th year in 2016. One of the largest open art exhibitions in the UK, the event raises up to £40,000 for Macmillan every year.

We’re delighted to celebrate the astounding contribution made by the members of the Holmfirth Committee – all of whom have proved themselves to be shining stars.
