New Year, New Beginnings…. New Website!

New Year, New Beginnings…. New Website!

A very warm welcome to 2020 and also to our shiny new website! We hope that you enjoy browsing through our news and plans for the year ahead and find all the information you need. Any feedback or comments are welcome!

As a new year dawned at Macmillan Caring Locally, a wave of anticipation drifted through the charity office and Mac Unit. The prospect of significant developments with our new building has triggered a hive of activity within the fundraising team and staff and volunteers throughout the unit are full of enthusiasm for the new year and with it, new beginnings.

We have already received an incredible amount of support for our Brick By Brick appeal and we are very much looking forward to its long awaited official launch! With many opportunities for events and fundraising, we are hoping all of you lovely people will come together with your community and get involved. Our Chuck our Change boxes have been an absolute hit so if you haven’t got yours yet, give us a shout. Our fabulous book, Big Bob and Sunny’s Journey, has been very popular with children and is available to buy on the website. Plus, if you need some inspiration for fundraising, grab a copy of our F-Word – a little book full of ideas to help you do your own thing to raise some valuable pennies for our amazing new building.

All the details about our events are available on the website so if you fancy a challenge, a laugh or just the opportunity to do something different, get yourself signed up and Barry will be in touch. Details of formal launch events and opportunities will also be available soon but information about how to support us, whether you are a trust or foundation, corporate or individual, are listed on the website too.

So, if like many of us, your new year resolutions are starting to wane already….. fear not! We have loads of opportunities throughout the year for you to do something amazing. Any fundraising you can do will be hugely appreciated! You’ll then be able to pat yourself on the back, tell your friends how awesome you are and best of all, you’ll get us another step closer to completing our new, state-of-the-art specialist unit – a landmark for the future of palliative care! What’s stopping you?!

Keep in touch, let us know how your fundraising is going and if you managed to convince your friends to take on any of our challenges! We look forward to hearing from you and bringing you more great news throughout the year. Bring it on 2020!!
