This is your chance to nominate someone who’s made a real difference for a Macmillan Volunteer Award.
Do you know a Macmillan volunteer who goes above and beyond? Now’s your time to make them known. They could be someone who just goes that extra mile for people. Or maybe they’ve been volunteering a long time and deserve extra recognition?
Well we want to know about them... and reward them.
Nominations for the annual Macmillan Volunteers Awards opened on 1 September and we want you to let us know about the volunteers who are making a real difference and deserve an extra big thank you.
One very special person who was recently recognised with a Lifetime Achievement Volunteer Award is Sue. As a volunteer at the Pilgrim Hospital Macmillan centre, she sees first-hand the difference volunteers make to the lives of people affected by cancer.
‘So many of our visitors enter very downhearted’ she says, but then adds that they, ‘leave with much greater understanding... in much better spirits’.
‘Volunteering for Macmillan is the best decision I ever made. Not being a doctor or a nurse, I wanted to do my bit to help cancer patients and carers'.
‘But as well as helping support people affected by cancer I would never have met such great people without volunteering for Macmillan’.
