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.

Your fundraising can make a huge difference

Find out what we can do with the money that you raise:

£350 A Macmillan Grant is a one-off payment of £350 to help with the extra costs that living with cancer can bring. It can be used to help ease some of the additional financial pressures caused by a cancer diagnosis, such as increased energy and water bills, cost of travel to and from hospital and making home adaptations.

£4,000 could help run our Online Community forum for 1 week. In this time, 12,211 people affected by cancer in the UK can give emotional and practical support to each other on anything to do with cancer - from treatments, to coping with everyday life, to the death of a loved one.

£1,000 could pay for 2200 copies of The Cancer Guide. This Macmillan booklet can help someone recently diagnosed with cancer and their families, understand more about cancer, its treatment, and the help available.

£6,000 could support our Energy Advice Team to run the Energy Advice service of our phone service for 1 week. In this time, they could, on average, deal with 167 calls or web enquiries, providing advice on how people living with cancer can keep warm without the worry.

£2,000 could support our Cancer Information Nurse Specialists to run our Macmillan Support Line phone service for 2 hours. In this time, they could answer 32 calls and web enquiries from people and provide a wide range of specialist information such as how to manage side effects, treatment options, living with cancer, and coping with grief.

£16,000 could pay for a Macmillan Nurse for 3 months helping people living with cancer and their families receive essential medical, practical and emotional support.
