These were the words of our CEO, Lynda Thomas, and they’re certainly backed up by the facts. 2015 marks 30 years of support from the National Gardens Scheme and an incredible £15.2 million raised by them for Macmillan. Blooming marvellous.
Four out of every five people affected by cancer struggle with the financial burden it brings. Our network of cancer care specialists are here to provide support on any money worries those affected by cancer may have.
That’s what it took to raise an incredible £85,000 at Argos stores up and down the country – eight stores raised over £500 each.
'Amazing to see bank notes going in the bucket! Very generous folks' exclaimed one volunteer.
The next big collection is in January when we're hoping to raise even more money. Perhaps we'll see you there?
Here at Macmillan our Evidence team work at gaining a better understanding of the number, needs and experiences of people affected by cancer. We then use this knowledge to improve, and influence the development of, cancer services. Thanks to our supporters we are able to fund our evidence research and projects.
