Welcome to our website!
We are Macmillan Cancer Support (Merton), known for short as Macmillan Merton. With your help, we raise money for Macmillan Nurses and Specialists based at our local hospitals: St. George's, St. Helier, Epsom and the Royal Marsden, Sutton, all of which serve the needs of our local community. Currently, all money raised is going for a new Macmillan Support Worker at St. George's Hospital, Tooting, who will assist the Breast Care Clinical Nurse, relieving her of her non-medical duties, allowing the Nurse to spend maximum time caring for her patients. The role has proved to be very successful and extremely important to the cancer care team.
Over the past few years you have helped provide several posts at the Marsden, the Oncology Day Unit at St. George's, 6 Support Workers, support for Jigsaw4U and now a Breast Cancer Support Worker.
If you are looking for cancer support services please contact the main Macmillan website, otherwise have a browse here to see how we raise funds in Merton. If you are interested in getting involved in fund-raising for Macmillan please contact us for further information. We would be delighted to hear from you!
In this time of Covid 19 we have been unable to run our usual fundraising events but the need for cancer services is greater than ever. We are delighted to announce that we are planning to hold several socially distanced coffee mornings in September/October - details will be announced shortly. We will also be holding a "Virtual" Early Early Christmas Fair as sadly, we cannot hold an 'actual' one this year. Again, details are being worked out at the moment and will be published as soon as everything is in place. If you want to know more please contact us through this site.
We will also be making and selling our own, locally inspired, Christmas cards that will be uploaded to the site as soon as we have all the images. If you wish to 'sponsor' a card - ie pay for the printing costs of 1000 cards (£150) - please contact Liza through this site. Your name and/or logo would appear on the reverse of each card. We also print cards with your personal greetings.
