The Macmillan Wisbech fundraising group has had an exceptional year having raised over £35,000 in 2016.
This money is helping people affected by cancer locally and helps ensure the Macmillan services available at King’s Lynn hospital continuse to be available to people diagnosed with cancer within the local area.
In addition some of this money helps fund grants for local people affected by cancer who are struggling financially to pay the various costs arising from their treatment.
Chloe Coombs, regional fundraising manager, said: “We are so proud of the Wisbech group, their hard work and dedication ensures that this money is raised, helping people in the local community. This year they have amazed us by raising so much money and this is testament to their commitment to Macmillan and the people of Wisbech.
“A big thank you to all of the general public who participated fundraising and also to the local shops, schools and businesses who also have supported the group and Macmillan.”
