£1400 raised for Macmillan Cancer SupportPosted on Jan 15, 2019
Following the generosity of all those who attended the UKGSA’s Annual Golf Day & Fundraising Dinner in September, we raised £1,400.00 for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Michelle Jeffcott Fundraising Manager for Macmillan Cancer Support said: “We are delighted to be UKGSA’s charity partner and much appreciate the donation of £1,400 which was raised at the dinner in September. Macmillan Cancer Support rely 98% on donations to fund our work and at a time when we are supporting more people than ever living with cancer, donations like these will help us to continue to provide vital services, helping people to find their best way through and live life as fully as they can. The £1,400 raised could pay for up to 50 hours of nursing.”
Macmillan help people manage symptoms and offer advice & benefits as well as training for employers to support people back to work. For more information about Macmillan Cancer Support visit their website at: https://www.macmillan.org.uk
A fundraising raffle, with a range of fabulous prizes kindly donated by UKGSA members, was held during the Dinner after our Golf Day which contributed to the total amount raised.
