A week of going green in March raised £9,400 for two centres run by Macmillan cancer charity.

Money raised will be divided between the Robert Horrell Day Care Centre at Peterborough Hospital and the new Macmillan Woodlands Centre Appeal at Hinchingbrooke Hospital.

Jessica Levin, regional fund raising manager, said: “We cannot thank the March and Chatteris group enough for their hard work and dedication to fund raising for Macmillan Cancer Support.

“Their support allows us to be there for people affected by cancer in the local community.”

Local volunteers sent a massive thank you to all the people, shops, schools and businesses who supported the Macmillan ‘Go Green’ week in May.

Some of this money will help fund grants for local people affected by cancer who are struggling financially to pay the various costs arising from their treatment.
