We are pleased to announce that we have reached an amazing £80,000 in fundraising for local people affected by cancer since 2011.
The funds we have raised so far means Macmillan can continue to retain and develop local services to people who are affected by cancer. We currently have the invaluable Macmillan Cancer Support Centre in Sunderland Royal Hospital and having a drop in centre to support cancer patients and their family and friends is vital to the local community. Not only can they access emotional support but they can gain financial support from the Macmillan benefits advisors within the centre.
Liz Airey said ' I would like to say a huge thank you to Town Centre Automobiles for continuing to support Macmillan raising such an amazing amount to help the people who are affected by cancer. The money raised will fund a Macmillan nurse for 18 months which is amazing! The staff are all dedicated to helping support the charity and have all been involved with extra fundraising. It is wonderful to have such great people supporting us.
Every day 45 people will be told the devastating news they have cancer it is only with support like this that we can continue to fund services. The North East will see people living with cancer rise from 2.5 million to 4million by 2030.
Chris Sopp said ' Thank you to our staff, customers and friends for the support they have given us in raising such a fantastic amount, it really will make a difference. We are committed to supporting Macmillian and we are looking forward to our planned events this year. '
Macmillan needs to keep growing to make sure no one faces cancer alone. We have many opportunities to help from fundraising to volunteering if you would like more information please contact Liz Airey, Fundraising Manager on 07801 307012 or visit https://www.macmillan.org.uk/.
