Fundraising: Fantastic effort for Macmillan

A total of almost £20,963 was raised last year through donations and fundraising events in Scarborough and district to help the work of the Macmillan Cancer Support charity.

This is a fantastic result, and I would like to say a very big thank you to the people of the Scarborough area for all their donations, and to all those who helped with events and collections.

All the money raised will go towards helping people affected by cancer.

We will be continuing their fundraising this year with stalls at Filey Town Festival and Scarborough Fair, and collections at local supermarkets.

One of the group’s main fundraising events is the annual coffee morning to be held at the Grand Hotel on Thursday September 25 as part of Macmillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.
