Having to deal with the physical effects of cancer is hard enough, but often there’s a financial burden too.
This was the situation faced by Philomena, a grandmother of six. After being diagnosed with breast cancer she had to give up work and go on statutory sick pay, which led to a significant fall in income. With Christmas coming and heating bills, Macmillan gave her a grant of £350 to fill her tank with oil.
Teaming up with Travis Perkins will bring many benefits for Macmillan: the main one being a very welcome £3 million over the next three years. Another bonus is that Macmillan’s logo will adorn the many Travis Perkins vans driving around, along with the words ‘building better cancer support’. And with partnerships like this, that’s exactly what we’re doing.
Meet Ivan, our latest lucky raffle winner. He backs Macmillan because, in his words, ‘we hear such good reports about what the nurses do’.
He may have won £8,000 in Macmillan’s November 2014 Prize Draw, but he’s taking it all in his stride: ‘I’m a bit of a laid back sort of chap,’ explained Ivan. And that’s before the relaxing family cruise he’s planning.
