Macmillan Cancer Support

We support people affected by cancer to make sure no one faces cancer alone


Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

As many of you know I was in training to run a 10k for charity last year when I was diagnosed with breast cancer.  Following 3 operations, chemotherapy and radiotherapy I have now been pronounced clear, thankfully.  Many people, however, are not as fortunate as I have been with the support I have had from both work colleagues and friends.  Nor are they as well as I was, which is where the amazing work of MacMillan comes into its own.  They are there to support both you, your family and your employer with advice throughout.  They are there with financial help and advice for those who are in need of help due to the very real added expense which having cancer incurs.  And the nurses are there to help look after those who unfortunately need care in the latter stages of their life.  All this could not be done without your generosity as MacMillan relies totally on your donations.  Any money you choose to give will directly help to relieve the suffering of someone who is much less fortunate than me.  I am unable to run again, but have chosen to walk to raise money to support the work they do.

Many of you will know someone who has benefitted from the help given by MacMillan.  Please help to allow this work to continue.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please dig deep and donate now.
