Nurse Team Happy With Buckfast
The Lanarkshire Macmillan Community Nurse Team and area fundraising manager Angela McCormack were delighted to receive a cheque for £20,000 from Stewart Wilson, Sales Manager of J Chandler and Co (Buckfast) Ltd.
The Lanarkshire Macmillan Community Nurse Team are toasting a bumper £20,000 donation from Buckfast.
They were delighted to accept the donation from the firm’s sales manager Stewart Wilson.
It now means that J Chandler & Co (Buckfast) Ltd have handed £95,000 to Macmillan’s Lanarkshire branch over the last four years, to help people affected by cancer.
Angela McCormack, area fundraising manager for Macmillan, said: “On behalf of Macmillan Cancer Support, I would like to sincerely thank J Chandler & Co (Buckfast) Ltd for making the very generous donation of £20,000 to the charity.
“The money will be used to provide much-needed financial support for Lanarkshire cancer patients. It will help to pay for travel to and from hospital for treatment, heating bills, clothing, washing machines and other household items.”
In 2015, Macmillan paid out over £300,000 in grants to people affected by cancer in Lanarkshire, who struggled financially because of the illness.
Mr Wilson visited Hamilton’s Udston Hospital to hand over the bumper cheque.
He said: “We at J Chandler & Co (Buckfast) Ltd are delighted to be able to make a donation to Macmillan Cancer Support for the fourth consecutive year.
“The whole team at Macmillan Cancer Support do an excellent job within communities right across the UK. We would like to applaud the hard work carried out by everyone at Macmillan.
“We understand our donation of £20,000 will be put towards grants for people who require it most within Lanarkshire.”
