Fundraising: Fantastic support

A total of almost £23,571 was raised last year through donations and fundraising events in the Scarborough and district area 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 money raised will go towards helping people affected by cancer.

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

One of our main fundraising events is the annual coffee morning to be held at the Grand Hotel as part of Macmillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning. This year the coffee morning will be held on Wednesday September 23.
