Our partnership with Skiddle

Skiddle and Macmillan – just the ticket for people living with cancer.

Skiddle and Macmillan have worked together since 2016, with the initial ambition of raising £53,000 in the first two years. Since then, the award winning online ticket outlet and events guide has raised over £250,000 to support people living with cancer in the UK. 

Skiddle achieves this through various events, staff fundraising, and asking customers to consider a donation to Macmillan when they purchase event tickets. As well as these Skiddle Co-founder and Director, Rich, organises Lancaster-based Highest Point Festival, and invites Macmillan to fundraise at the event each year.

Our partnership with Skiddle began when Chris Glaba, an employee and close friend of Co-founder and Director Rich Dyer, was diagnosed with cancer. Chris sadly died in December 2016. 

Speaking about the partnership, Richard Dyer, Co-Founder and Director of Skiddle, commented: 

‘If you had told me, in 2016, that we would be standing here today, having raised over £250,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support, I wouldn’t have believed you. Supporting this cause is overwhelmingly important to us and there is no better feeling than exceeding a fundraising target, especially when it’s for something that means so much to me and the team at Skiddle.’
