A CHEQUE for £185.50 was recently given to Macmillan Cancer Support after the Times & Speaker teamed up with bookmakers Coral.
We asked readers to pick who would win the Euros at the start of the competition, and Coral allowed us to place a £50 charity bet on eventual winners Spain.
Macmillan fundraising manager Angela McCormack has penned a letter (below) thanking readers, the Times & Speaker and Coral for the support.
THANK you so much for nominating Macmillan Cancer Support as the chosen charity to benefit from the Euro 2012 winning charity bet and for presenting me with a cheque for £187.50. The funds will be used by Macmillan to help local people affected by cancer.
One in three of us will get cancer and it’s the toughest thing most of us will ever face.
If you’ve been diagnosed with cancer, or a loved one has, you’ll want a team of people in your corner, supporting you every step of the way.
Macmillan Cancer Support provides emotional, practical, medical and financial suppor,t and pushes for better cancer care.
We are the nurses helping you through treatment. The volunteers giving you a hand with the everyday things. The fundraisers who make it all possible. The community supporting you online, any time.
Thank you again for thinking of Macmillan Cancer Support.
