How to send Macmillan my fundraising

All donations for your team are recorded on the Team Captain's record, so please quote the team name and your team captains full name when paying in any donations.

Online donations

All the money raised on your online team page or via JustGiving goes to Macmillan automatically. Alternatively, you can use any of the methods below.

Offline donations

There are a number of different ways you can get the money to us. Over the telephone, by post or by paying directly into our bank account. Find out more below:

  • Sponsorship form
  • If you have collected cash donations with your sponsorship forms, we don't recommend sending cash in the post. To get the money to us you can either pay it directly into a bank using your paying in slip, post us a cheque (please include a cover letter which includes the event and the name of your team or your team captains name) or donate your sponsorship money over the phone. Then please write your full name, event name and team name on the sponsorship forms you send to us at:

    The Longest Day Golf Challenge
    Macmillan Cancer Support
    PO Box 791
    YO1 0NJ

    Some top tips to help your sponsors when completing the form:
    • Write your full name (full forename and surname) and only one person's name per donation
    • Use your home address - HMRC needs your UK taxpayer address
    • Tick the Gift Aid box. If you've read the declaration and are happy to include Gift Aid, make sure you tick that box!
  • Post a cheque
  • If you'd like to pay by cheque, please make the cheques payable to Macmillan Cancer Support. Remember to include your paying-in slip and write your event, team name and team captain's name on the back of the cheque. Then send it to the address above. Please don't send cash by post.

  • Donate into your bank
  • If you'd like to request a credit slip to deposit at a NatWest or Royal Bank of Scotland near you, email fundraising@macmillan.org.uk or call us on 0300 1000 200 (Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm).

    If you would prefer to make an electronic bank transfer, we can give you the account details to pay in your fundraising. We will also provide you with a unique BACS reference number that is linked to your team's fundraising. Please call our Supporter Care Team on 0300 1000 200 or email us at fundraising@macmillan.org.uk and ensure you quote your unique reference number when donating.

    Please do not pay money in at any other bank, as Macmillan may have to pay a charge and could even have difficulty tracing your payment

  • Donate by phone

    Our phone lines are open Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm.

  • Matched giving
  • If your employer has agreed to match all/part of your donation, please email the Macmillan Golf Team fundraising@macmillan.org.uk with the following information:

    Team reference number; team captain's name; the employer company name; the donation amount, the estimated date of payment and the name of the team member who the donation is being matched for.

    This will help us to track the donation so that we can attribute the funds to your team total as soon as possible.

    We do not automatically thank for donations raised on Facebook and we may not always be able to see who is fundraising for us on Facebook due to Facebook's privacy settings. If you are fundraising on Facebook, please get in contact us with us by phone: 0300 1000 200 or by email: fundraising@macmillan.org.uk to let us know so that we can include your Facebook donations in your team's total.

    Please note, any donations raised through Facebook will not show on your fundraising page but will be included in your event fundraising total (if you've contacted us).

However you pay the money in, please don't forget to send us your sponsorship form with everyone's Gift Aid details.
