Our partnership with Boots

We're working with Boots to help everyone living with cancer find the information and support they need to feel more like themselves again.

How our partnership helps

Being told ‘you have cancer’ can affect so much more than just your health – it can affect the way you think and feel about yourself.

Our experience in supporting people living with cancer, combined with Boots UK’s expertise of delivering healthcare and beauty information and advice, means we are able to help thousands of people in their local communities.

By providing bespoke training to Boots UK pharmacists and No7 Beauty Advisors, we can offer expert health and beauty advice to help people living with cancer feel more like themselves again.

Since the partnership began in 2009, Boots UK colleagues and customers have raised over £16.6 million for Macmillan Cancer Support, and continue to raise significant funds to improve the lives of people living with cancer.

We are here for you

You will find Boots Macmillan Beauty Advisors in many Boots stores. They are No7 beauty advisors who have been specially trained by us to give free, face-to-face advice to help you cope with visible side effects of cancer.

From defining sparse brows and lashes to caring for nails that are suddenly more brittle, they offer lots of tips to help people look and feel more like themselves again.

You can also find Boots Macmillan Information Pharmacists in selected stores, who have been specially trained to understand the different types of cancer, treatment and to answer questions about medication. They can also guide you to other sources of information and support.

We aim to give everyone living with cancer the information and support they need in a place that’s everyday, familiar and trusted – to help you live life as fully as you can.

Fundraising that makes a difference

Since 2009, Boots UK has raised vital funds in stores through a variety of colleague and customer fundraisers, raffles, fancy dress and beauty makeover events.

Boots UK staff regularly take part in challenge events in aid of Macmillan, including the London Marathon and Miles for Macmillan, to hiking Machu Picchu and Mount Kilimanjaro.

The valuable support of Boots colleagues in stores, and through office fundraising, means that over £16.6 million has been raised since our partnership began, with many more colleagues and customers getting involved in fundraising every month.
