We are grateful for such generosity

August 31 2019

I WOULD like to express my sincere thanks to all your readers, their family and friends who have donated to Macmillan Cancer Support in Somerset this past year.

Through their generosity, our Macmillan Wells committee has now raised over £500,000. This has allowed the charity to invest in Macmillan nurses and other professionals who help people with cancer live their lives as fully as they can, no matter what it throws their way. In Somerset, we had ten professionals in funding at the start of the year, supporting people’s needs, and in 2018 £116,700 in grants was given to local people in urgent need of financial support because of cancer.

None of this would have been possible without those who have donated, so I believe it is only right that I acknowledge the impact they have had in our area. On behalf of everyone who’s experienced support from Macmillan, we are very grateful.

Chairman, Wells & District Macmillan Cancer Support
