Every day in Cambridgeshire, 12 people hear the devastating news they have cancer, more money is needed to ensure that Macmillan is able to support people affected by cancer and help ensure no one faces cancer alone. For this reason, Macmillan is looking to local groups, clubs, organisations and associations to help.
Fundraising Manager Chloe Coombs is well aware of the importance of local generosity “We’ve seen some amazing events and fundraising ideas throughout the year so far, and we can’t thank everyone enough for their support. Yet there’s always an inherent challenge in keeping the wheels turning and ensuring we’ve got the right funds to allocate to the right places. Donations are literally what keep us going, and we want to continue giving our renowned support to cancer patients across the county. If you’re part of a rotary club, a library, a local parish or any other gathering of likeminded individuals, we’d be thrilled to hear from you.”
From parish councils to bowling clubs, schools and colleges to members of the armed forces, raising funds for Macmillan couldn’t be simpler. Summer sports days, barbecues, raffles or more are just three of the countless ways you can get involved. No matter what your group can give, it all contributes in a big way to the lives of cancer patients and their loved ones.
