This is a chance to celebrate special people that go above and beyond to fundraise for Macmillan. It's a way to thank them for all they have achieved in fundraising for people living with cancer.
Past Macmillan winners include marathon runner Gary Mckee and super cyclist Mavis Paterson, who both won the Endurance Fundraiser award in 2017 and 2019 respectively.
We are privileged to have so many remarkable fundraisers who raise money for us in the most original ways. Many beat odds stacked unkindly against them and show an outstanding commitment to their challenges.
Their hard work inspires us at Macmillan and those around them.
Cliff has been nominated in the 2022 JustGiving Awards after raising over £30,000 for Macmillan.
In 2018 Cliff lost his youngest son, Connor to a rare type of soft tissue sarcoma. In his memory, Cliff took on an impressive 980 mile challenge cycling the length of Britain.
Cliff says, "It was so important to remember and honour Connor during the cycle ride. He loved adventure and travelling to new places - being on holiday somewhere new was his happy place, and he had lots of plans to travel around the world. He also loved animals; visiting zoos and safari parks were a favourite activity.
Throughout this time our Macmillan nurse was with us every single step. Those days when we held out hope, as well as the days when our world fell apart.
She provided not just clinical support, but also emotional support for us and Connor. She helped us navigate so many tough times. Truly it felt like an angel had been sent to us."
