How You’re Helping
Whether you’re braving the shave or donating to someone taking part, you’re ensuring that Macmillan can be there for people with cancer and their families.
We know cancer doesn’t just affect your body; it affects your whole life and the lives of people around you. The money you raise will mean we can be there for even more people now and in the future.
With your support, we can provide nurses, support centres, advice lines and more. We’re here to help people living with cancer take back control so they can start to feel like themselves again.

"MY MACMILLAN GRANT WAS A GODSEND"
After talking to one of our Macmillan Support Line advisers about her unmanageable oil bill, Philomena received a £350 grant from Macmillan which meant she could heat her home though winter.
"THE CENTRE WAS UNBELIEVABLE AND FULL OF LOVELY PEOPLE"
Thom found his Macmillan information and support centre at Derriford Hospital to be a haven in between his chemotherapy sessions.
"GILL’S GIVEN ME STRENGTH AND COURAGE"
When Dave was told he had prostate cancer, his Macmillan nurse, Gill, was there to support him – right from the moment he was diagnosed, for as long as he needed her.
£10 spent on the Macmillan Support Line could lead to us helping someone claim £409 in benefits.
£185 could pay for a Macmillan Grant that helps a person living with cancer heat their home.
£360 could help run a large Macmillan information and support centre for a day.
£1,020 could fund a Macmillan nurse for a week, helping people living with cancer and their families.
