We've raised a whopping £2,632.22 for Macmillan Cancer Support throughout 2017.
Staff from across all departments have joined together to raise the cash through the York Dragon Boat Race, coffee drinking, cake baking, bag packing, football playing, survey taking, Christmas raffles, and even sock monkey making!
This sum is enough to provide 94 hours of vital support from Macmillan nurses and healthcare professionals. Macmillan understands that life with cancer is still life, from the moment you’re diagnosed, through your treatment and beyond, providing a constant source of support, practically, medically and financially to give you the energy and inspiration to take back control of your life.
Nicola Taylor, CSR & Engagement Coordinator has said:
“We are delighted to have raised so much money, my colleagues have given their all to help people affected by cancer. We know that the funds will be put to good use by Macmillan Cancer Support and as an organisation with healthcare at its heart, we couldn’t be happier to support such a wonderful charity.”
Sarah Child, Fundraising Manager for Macmillan in York said:
“We are truly grateful to each and every Benenden employee for their support this year, they have embraced fundraising and the funds will make a real difference here in York, where around 4,600 people are living with and beyond cancer.”
