Thank you from Macmillan

I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to the people of Whitby and surrounding areas.

I am the fundraising manager for the Yorkshire coast for Macmillan Cancer support, and this year we held our first Miles for Macmillan 13 mile Whitby Walk .

The people of Whitby have been so supportive and the event was a real success.

Thank you to all of the shops, and businesses who have helped us to promote the event with posters and flyers. Thank you to the Rotary Whitby Endeavour who have offered so much help and support in organising the event and on the day. Thank you to the locals who helped to lead the walkers on the route. Thank you to everyone at the leisure centre who have helped with many logistics too. Thank you to the Whitby Gazette who have helped us to promote the event. Everyone who took part, or sponsored a walker – thank you to you too. It wouldn’t have been such a success without you all.

Everyone knows somebody who has been affected by cancer. It’s the toughest fight most of us will ever face. We really do appreciate all the help and support from the people of Whitby. It really will make a big difference to people who are going through cancer, and their families.
