Over £17,000 raised for Macmillan
We have raised a grand total of £17,243 for Macmillan Cancer Support over three years – trebling our original £5,000 fundraising target.
The money raised by us will go to help people in Mansfield, Ashfield and Chesterfield by providing financial, practical and emotional support to individuals and families affected by cancer.
A staggering 1 in 2 people will be diagnosed with cancer during their lifetime and each year there are around 1,200 cases of cancer in Mansfield and Ashfield, this shows how important Macmillan’s support is to our local area.
Gev Lynott, Chief Executive of Mansfield Building Society, said “We’re extremely proud to have supported Macmillan over the past 3 years. The tremendous fundraising effort of our staff and members highlights just how much this charity means to people.
We’ve climbed mountains, run marathons, cycled and baked our way through some amazing fundraising events. We hope the contribution we’ve made has made a real difference to those in need.”
Katherine Booth, Fundraising Manager at Macmillan, thanked the Society for all our fundraising efforts,
“This is such an amazing achievement by Mansfield Building Society. Everyone has been so enthusiastic about raising money, which is reflected in the incredible amount raised.
The majority of our income is generated from fundraising and without the commitment of organisations like Mansfield Building Society we’d struggle to support as many people as we do. The donations will help relieve the stress that cancer causes and have a huge impact on the day-to-day lives of so many people as they go through their treatment.
We’d like to thank Mansfield Building Society for choosing Macmillan 3 years ago, and for your commitment and hard work with fundraising.”
We will be announcing our new Charity Partner in due course.
