Pass it on

I got a nice mail from the people at Macmillan today thanking me for my marathon efforts so I have posted it below so that all my sponsors can see what a contribution their money makes and how much it is appreciated. Thanks again.

Dear Mr Connor

May we begin by congratulating you for completing the Abingdon Marathon. Your fantastic achievement has also raised £402.13 (including Gift Aid) for Macmillan Cancer Support through the Just Giving Website. It is with the support of people like you that we can improve the lives of more and more people affected by cancer.

Macmillan provides practical, medical, emotional and financial support and we push for better cancer care. It’s not only patients who live with cancer, we also help carers, families and communities; providing practical support, such as precious time off for a carer, or a simple lift to a hospital. We guide people through the system, fund nurses and other specialist health care professionals and build cancer care centres.

We share information and give emotional support, though our CancerLine, website, support groups and trained professionals. Our Macmillan Grant and benefits advice help people cope with the financial impact cancer can have. We are also a force for change, listening to people affected by cancer and working together to fight inequality and improve cancer care. We believe everyone with cancer should receive the same level of care regardless of whom they are and where they live.

We can’t do any of this without your support. You have helped change lives.

Once again, please accept our warmest thanks for your valuable support.

Yours sincerely

Victoria Morgan

Supporter Services Assistant (Monday - Wednesday)
