We raise money exclusively for local Macmillan projects based at St George’s, Epsom & St Helier, The Royal Marsden and Kingston Hospitals, directly for the benefit of our community.
Currently we are raising funds for a Junior Nurse Specialist at St George’s Hospital, who will work across a variety of cancers, with the possibility of looking at the impact of Covid-19 on cancer. The cost of this post is £118,651.
Our usual programme of fundraising events has been suspended due to Covid-19, but we are planning on holding a series of small coffee mornings ahead of a Virtual Early, Early Christmas Fair at the end of October. Look out for further details!
Macmillan nurses, doctors and other health professionals continue to support people living with cancer, whilst doing all they can to help alleviate the immense strain put on the NHS by coronavirus. In addition, comprehensive cancer information and support is available on www.macmillan.org.uk and the Macmillan Support Line on 0808 808 00 00, which is open 7 days a week.
These services are needed now more than ever, but they can’t continue without your help. Please consider donating today to help make sure Macmillan can keep delivering this critical support in the weeks and months to come.
