A big thank you from Macmillan
Thank you so much for holding your Golf event and raising an incredible £‎3,900.00 for Macmillan Cancer Support. We hope you enjoyed it, and that you’ll pass on our thanks to everyone who helped make it a success. Your enthusiasm and generosity will allow us to help everyone with cancer live life as fully as they can, providing physical, financial and emotional support.

£3,700 could fund the conversion of a small hospital office into a quiet room for cancer patients to have private and sensitive conversations with healthcare professionals.

Support every step of the way
At Macmillan, we understand that cancer can impact a person’s whole life – health, money, family, work; everything. We can help people with managing symptoms and offer advice and benefits for things like keeping the cost of heating down during treatment. We can also provide training for employers to support people back to work. With your support, people get the energy and inspiration to feel more like themselves.

 

Gift Aid raises more
Did you know that Macmillan Cancer Support can claim an extra 25p for every £1 donated from UK tax-payers at no extra cost? If you do hold an event for Macmillan in the future, would you be so kind to ask your supporters to Gift Aid their donations by filling in your sponsorship form, which can be downloaded at: be.macmillan.org.uk/sponsorship-form.

Thank you once again for being a part of Team Macmillan. We have attached a certificate for you to display. 

With best wishes,

ELLCGA have managed to raise the fantastic sum of £3,900 for  Macmillan Cancer Support, from hosting the Babe Zaharias Competition at Muirfield. Many thanks to all who took part and for the hard work and finger crossing that allowed the competition to take place. Thank you to Muirfield for hosting this event.

Unfortunately due to current restrictions we have been unable to make the donation in person.

Michelle Campbell  from Macmillan has contacted us saying:

“Absolutely amazing news about the event and the timing couldn’t have worked out better.  What a fantastic amount raised, we are even more grateful for such a large donation this year due to the circumstances.”
