Make 2014 the year you do something for Macmillan

29th January 2014

Over the next two years Macmillan is spending £2 million in South Yorkshire to develop new services to support patients and the families affected by cancer.

We need your help now so that we can fund these new services. Lots of people start the New Year determined to make a few changes such as more exercise, a new challenge or helping others. Some see it through, others fall at the first hurdle! Macmillan is offering lots of great organised events both locally and nationally. These include the Yorkshire 3 Peaks endurance walk, runs including the Sheffield Half Marathon and Great North Run, swims, triathlons and cycling events. And there's plenty of time to train. There's also some exciting new challenges with a twist this year such as the Grim Night Terror series or Zip Wire Challenge from the Manchester Imperial War Museum. We need your help now, as by the year 2030 the number of people living in South Yorkshire with cancer will double to over 84,000 people. Macmillan currently reaches 3 out of 4 people, but we want to do more we want to reach 4 out of 4. Whatever challenge you are thinking of taking on, every £203 you raise could fund a whole day of a Macmillan professional. To do your bit for Macmillan email rturner@macmillan.org.uk for more information.
