Take on the Longest Day Golf Challenge and you’ll be making a real difference to people living with cancer. Thanks to you – and other heroes like you - we’ll be able to give people practical, emotional and genuinely personal support through cancer, from help with money worries to being there when someone needs to talk.

Where your fundraising goes

Macmillan nurses

Macmillan nurses do so much for people with cancer, from helping to ease the symptoms to providing emotional and practical support for the family.

Cancer information and support

From our free support line to information booklets to the Online Community, we answer questions, provide information and listen when people need to talk.

Help with money worries

Cancer can be tough on your finances. We help with things like benefits, grants for hospital travel and managing bills, so people can concentrate on getting through treatment.
