We want everyone who gives their time to Macmillan to feel appreciated for everything they do, both big and small. That’s why we’re introducing a new recognition scheme, Macmillan Moments. The initiative is designed to celebrate the everyday, meaningful, and impactful things people giving their time do to support Macmillan and people affected by cancer.
Anyone who gives their time to Macmillan can be recognised for a Macmillan Moment, at any time of year. Whether they’ve helped someone living with cancer to feel less alone, hosted a coffee morning, volunteered with one of our corporate partners, or given their time in some other way.
Everyone who is put forward for a Macmillan Moment will receive recognition and will be given their 'moment' where we celebrate them. They will be sent a personalised thank you in the post, as well as being celebrated across our online channels.
You can put a person or group forward for a Macmillan Moment by making a submission on our entry platform, AwardForce. Everyone who is put forward for a Macmillan Moment will be recognised, showing them that we see and appreciate what they have done, and giving them their ‘moment’ where we celebrate them.
The celebrations will take place every 3 months, so it works on a rolling basis. You can make a submission at any time of the year, but there are cut-off points for submissions to be part of the celebrations every 3 months. The dates for these will be detailed on the submission platform, AwardForce.
After the submission cut-off for that cycle, everyone who has been put forward will be informed via email that they have received a Macmillan Moment, as well as being sent a Macmillan Moments branded pin-badge and a personalised thank you in the post. Their story will also be shared on our online channels, if the recipient is happy for us to do so. You can find more guidance on submitting someone for a Macmillan Moment in our handy guide [PDF].
