Story

<p>Patient referrals to our service have tripled in the last ten years.The existing Macmillan Unit was built in 1974 and is now far too small for the number of people under our care. We have been setting aside funds to build a new Unit for many years. We have managed to raise £5.5m so far, but a new Unit is estimated at £10m.</p><p>Our patients receive the best possible care from our dedicated team of professionals and volunteers. Help us to provide them with the best possible facilities too.</p><p>Please help us in any way you can to reach this goal, so that we can start the build.</p><p>Thank you.</p>
