Macmillan volunteers across the country are playing a crucial role in representing the needs of people with cancer in hard-to-reach and underrepresented communities. With cancer services being adapted and created as a result of their efforts, it’s a real victory for people power.
The most exciting event of the spring is almost upon us: the Macmillan Volunteer Conference and Awards in Blackpool. The inspiring event, which takes place from 17 to 18 May, is set to be a fabulous celebration of you and your remarkable efforts.
It’s always awesome to spend time with your family, friends and local community – and you can make it even more rewarding if you organise a fundraising event for Macmillan together. You’ll be amazed at what can be achieved when everyone gets stuck in and shares their skills.
If you’ve been supported by Macmillan in the past, you might be keen to give something back through volunteering. With a variety of opportunities on offer, it's easy to give your time in a way that suits you.
There are lots of different ways to deliver emotional support to people living with cancer. This new volunteer-led service gives people the chance to learn about local and family history, alongside receiving the help they need.
