Our 25-year partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support
Nationwide’s been working with Macmillan since 1993. During that time we’ve raised over £7.7 million to help improve the lives of people affected by cancer in the UK.
All those coffee mornings, all that time and energy spent fundraising year after year has made such a big difference. We’ve helped fund two Cancer Information Centres, Welfare Benefits Advisers in five regions of the UK and more recently, provided funding for the Macmillan Support Line, as well as grants to help people living with cancer with their mortgage and rental payments. These all help Macmillan ensure no one faces cancer alone.
In April 2015, we also began working together to pilot a Specialist Support Service for Nationwide members affected by cancer, a first for the financial services sector designed to provide free tailored and confidential support. Each member of the team has received training from Macmillan and is able to talk in detail about Nationwide’s products and services. The service is now officially launched.
More than one in three of us will get some form of cancer and two million people live with the condition. You may be close to someone who’s been affected by cancer.
