Macmillan’s business challenge

MACMILLAN Cancer Support is challenging businesses to discover who are the greatest fund-raisers in Whitby.

The charity is hosting a three-month challenge which runs until 30 September and all each business has to do is find a way to turn £20 into as much money as possible within the timescale.

Sally Millington, fund-raising manager for Macmillan, said: “We can give you some ideas and all we ask is that you at least double your money.

“The more you raise the more we can do to help people during what could be one of the toughest times of their lives.”

Sally added that the challenges do not have to be complicated, as often the simpler ones are better.

This can include cake baking, cycling, race nights, or dancing and Macmillan will be on hand to provide any support that is required.

“Friday 28 September is our World’s Biggest Coffee Morning. Each company participating will hold a coffee morning to signify the end of their fund-raising.

“Once totals are in, we will announce the winners. It’s amazing what you can achieve in just three months.”
