How your fundraising helps

At Macmillan, we give people with cancer everything we’ve got. If you’re diagnosed, your worries are our worries. We will move mountains to help you live life as fully as you can. And we don’t stop there. We’re going all out to find ever better ways to help people with cancer, helping to bring forward the day when everyone gets life-transforming support from day one. We’re doing whatever it takes, but we couldn’t do what we do without you, thank you so much for your support.

How your fundraising helps

£33 could pay for a Macmillan nurse for one hour. Helping people living with cancer and their families receive essential medical, practical and emotional support.

£86 could pay for 100 copies of our most popular booklet, Help with the Cost of Cancer, potentially helping a person affected by cancer understand the benefits and financial help they could access.

£181 could provide emotional support to one person living with cancer for around eight weeks, through ongoing and regular telephone sessions with one of our Macmillan Telephone Buddies.

£247 could pay for a Macmillan Information and Support Manager for 1 day to staff a Macmillan Information Centre.

A £350 Macmillan Grant could help with the extra costs that living with cancer can bring, such as the travel costs of getting to and from appointments, higher energy bills as a result of needing to keep warm during treatment, or the purchase of appliances to make the preparation of food easier.

£830 could support our Cancer Information Nurse Specialists to run our Macmillan Support Line phone service for 1 hour. In this time, they could deal with 17 calls and web enquiries from people and provide a wide range of specialist information such as how to manage side effects, treatment options, living with cancer, and coping with grief.

If you still need us, we’re right there with you too. For more information on how to access our support services visit the link below.
