I look at the Macmillan pages on JustGiving and this week we have someone who has recovered from a brain tumor and so, unable to climb now, is cycling for us. Someone who is doing her third hike in memory of her sister, she enjoys the company of the people this allows her to meet. A charity football match for rival West End productions, and in memory of a wig lady. One lady posts a picture of her bandaged foot, but she is signed up and expects to be off for 2017. How proud am I to work with such inspiring people!


They run ‘cause they loved you,

They walk ‘cause they care,

They’re having a football match

(Wish you were there).


They’re broken and bandaged,

It won’t hold them back,

I wish I had half of their

Courage to pack…


They’re all our supporters,

They’re people like you,

Who’re just blooming grateful

For all they can do.


But actually also

They’re people like me,

Who know that Macmillan

Helps those who’re at sea…


So whatever your fancy, go for it! More than one in three of us will get cancer. For most of us it will be the toughest fight we ever face. Now, more than ever, we need people like you to join our team and help us make sure no one faces cancer alone.

Don’t forget, if you just want to make a donation you can do so at
