"We are so grateful for the hard work of the Billingshurst committee."

Pam Goldsmith (pictured above second from left) has helped raise £1.5 million for Macmillan as the longest serving member of a fundraising committee based in Billingshurst, West Sussex.

We are so pleased to share that she was awarded with a British Empire Medal in the New Year Honours List 2023.

Pam started volunteering after her husband died from cancer in 1996, and her homemade cakes which she sells at local community events are now legendary, bringing customers from far and wide.
