Joining Forces T.P Properties, The Bee And Macmillan

Local radio stations 107fm The Bee, 99.8fm 2BR and leading cancer charity Macmillan Cancer Support joined forces for 'Bring A Pound to Work Day' asking the people of East Lancashire to raise money for people living with and affected by cancer.  T.P Properties' staff were featured on this important day by appearing on The Bee.

The event raised over £10,000 in 2009, and money raised by '£2W' will go directly towards funding Macmillan's range of services offering medical, emotional, practical and financial support. In East Lancashire people living with cancer already benefit from a wide range of Macmillan services ranging from teams of Macmillan Nurses, lung cancer specialists, to a Mobile Cancer Information Service, even to financial assistance.

For many people diagnosed with cancer dealing with the financial problems it brings can be almost as difficult as coping with the illness itself.  All the money given as grants comes from money raised for Macmillan from events such as '£2W', and it is only with the support of events such as this that Macmillan can continue to broaden its range of services.

Getting into the spirit of it, staff dressed down and donned the business with bunting and balloons. Alex Chadwick, the key organiser said, 'It's been a brilliant day.  Each and every staff member has played their part.  Thank you to The Bee for recognising our efforts.  We wish them and Macmillan all the very best with their fundraising efforts for this most worthy of causes.'

Well done everyone!
