Fundraising safely during the coronavirus lockdown

If you want to support Macmillan during this difficult time but aren't sure how you can raise money while isolating and social distancing, below are some ideas you can do at home.

With the cancellation of hundreds of traditional fundraising events due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, it's more important than ever to find safe ways to raise money and support Macmillan.

With your help, we can continue to provide emotional, practical and financial support to people living with cancer.

Help us fund new virtual services and recruit new workers while our nurses support the NHS frontline, so we can be there for people living with cancer.
