We will do whatever it takes to help you live life as fully as you can


UPDATE: Granny Mave has absolutely smashed her target of £30K. We just can't believe it. The amount of support she has received has been incredible. From all four corners of the UK (and beyond!). We've decided to up the target to £55K. It would be just phenomenal if we could raise that much.

Mavis Paterson AKA 'Granny Mave' is once again taking on an incredible challenge to raise vital funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Click on the video below to see more about her story:

Mavis will embark on a 1000 mile cycle around Scotland starting on April 29th and lasting roughly 1 month. She would be very grateful for your support. Mave is doing this in memory of her 3 adult children who died 4 years apart; Sandy in 2012, Katie in 2013, and Bob in 2016. Mave wants to focus her energy into taking on this phenomenal challenge to raise money for people living with cancer.
