Hendra Holiday Park, in Newquay Cornwall, handed over £13,398 to Macmillan Cancer Support last week, the proceeds from fundraising at the Park throughout the year.
Janine Hyatt, Director, said: “We chose MacMillan as we want to help them continue their very important work of supporting people through cancer. This is the largest amount we have raised and is certainly the result of the hard work of Hendra team members. Our guests opted into making a donation with their accommodation booking, took part in fundraising activities and dropped cash into charity tins on the park, and we are grateful for their support.”
Emma Wright, Senior Fundraising Manager: “We would like to say a huge thank you to Hendra Holiday Park and all of their guests for raising such an amazing amount of money for Macmillan Cancer Support. The number of people with cancer continues to rise, and increasingly, people are living much longer with and after cancer. While cancer is not always life ending, it is nearly always life changing. The support available is not always good enough: if we are struggling to meet demand now, how will we cope with increased demand in the future? Being told ‘you have cancer’ can affect so much more than your health – it can affect your family, your job, even your ability to pay the bills. But life with cancer is still life."
“We want to help everyone with cancer find their best way through, from the moment of diagnosis, so they’re able to live life as fully as they can. That’s why this money is so vital to us and will make a real difference to those trying to find their best way through cancer with Macmillan’s support.”
