“This is a fantastic achievement,”
“Macmillan is a very worthwhile charity, helping so many people and families who are affected by cancer. Every penny raised makes a difference to people’s lives.”
Tanya Taylor, Regional Fundraising Manager for Macmillan says: “We are delighted that Belvoir Lettings has achieved its target of raising £25,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support and we are also thrilled that the network has agreed to continue supporting us throughout 2013.
