Helping battle curse of cancer

BUSINESSES around the city are being asked to make a big difference for people living with cancer.

This year is extra special for Macmillan Cancer Support as it is its centenary so the charity is asking 100 businesses to help raise £100,000 over the coming year.

Macmillan’s Fundraising Manager in Buckinghamshire, Caroline Knight, said: “There is a wealth of talent, and creativity in Buckinghamshire’s business community. Every week, 58 people in Buckinghamshire will be told they have cancer. Together, 100 companies could raise £100,000 which could fund a Macmillan nurse for two years.

“£1,000 is within the reach of even the smallest business – one person could decide to do a sponsored bike ride, or the whole company could take part in events during the year.”
