Supporting Macmillan

I’m lucky enough to be able to say I haven’t had any experience in dealing with Cancer nor has my family. That’s a blessing in itself.

I do however have close friend’s who have had to deal with this. Thankfully, they have come out on the other side and are still alive and doing well today. Some aren’t so lucky.

Macmillan Cancer Support was founded by Douglas Macmillan back in 1911, he watched his father die of Cancer. Having seen his father’s pain and suffering, he set up ‘Society for the Prevention & Relief of Cancer‘.

The charity are a source of support for patients dealing with Cancer, but they’re also so much more! You can find out more by visiting their website here.

On Friday, the local Gap Outlet Store here in Manchester at the Lowry held a fundraiser. I was asked to go by to take some photos in the morning. Course I said yes. The great thing about this fundraiser is that for however much the guys raise instore, Gap HQ will match it!

The guys did a tremendous job. They did a great job of gathering together great prizes for a raffle & were selling yummy looking cakes, sweets & lemonade!

I believe they are still raising money over the weekend. Last I heard they were doing pretty damn well! Will edit the post & update once I get a figure during the week 🙂

Here are some photos
