Join us at the Macmillan Ball

We raised enough money to fund 6 nurses for over a year last year

Silent Auction and sponsorship


  • Where is the money being spent?


    Our priority is to spend as much of the money raised at The Macmillan Ball on services for people living with cancer. On the evening, we will hold a ‘Nurses Pledge’ from which all of the money raised will go towards funding a Macmillan Nurse.
