I AM writing to ask your readers to consider doing something brilliant in 2021 and raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support in the North West.

2020 was a difficult year for us all.

At Macmillan, demand for our services increased as people with cancer faced extra challenges and uncertainty while our income fell as so many of the wonderful events people usually do to support us were cancelled.

So, this new year, I am asking your readers for their support to help Macmillan be there for people with cancer across the North West.

Whether it’s a challenge linked to a New Year’s resolution or hosting a virtual event, there are plenty of things people can do to help us support people with cancer at a time when they need us most.

Get involved today by calling us on 0300 1000 200 or visit macmillan.org.uk.

And if you’re affected by cancer and would like support, information or just a chat, call us free on 0808 808 0000.

Aggie Sheppard,

Head of relationship fundraising North West, Macmillan Cancer Support
