I believe that while cancer research is vitally important It is
also the care for those going through the trauma of cancer that needs
I plan to run several small competitions throughout the year on our
Golf days with prizes, so whilst we are donating to the charity we can
also win! There will be the usual; blackout cards, captains’ charity
hole and collecting tins on the tables at dinner for your loose change
(paper or coins all gratefully received!).
I will also do a Majors competition for each of the four events.
At each golf day I will plan a small competition where a £1.00 entry
fee will go straight to the charity, and I will fund a prize.
Macmillan Cancer Support Values
Together, we do whatever it takes for people living with cancer. Our
Macmillan values help us to do just that. They are how we make sure
every action, every decision, every piece of marketing or word we say
helps us to do whatever it takes to help people with cancer live as
fully as they can.
We are courageous. We are determined. We give it all we've got.
We put the needs of people living with cancer first, which takes real
strength. We’re not expecting any one person to be unbreakable - we all
have a part to play and together we are stronger.
It’s about being accountable for our actions and using our courage
and determination to achieve the best possible result. This calls for
everyone to speak up and sometimes make difficult decisions. We don’t do
what’s easy. We do what will make the biggest difference.
We are genuine. We are compassionate. We see the whole you.
We have big hearts at Macmillan, but this doesn’t make us soft. We
want Macmillan to be a place where everyone can be their true self and
feel that their voice is valued; never ignored or undermined.
We take the time to really listen and commit to an open and honest
response, even when the answer isn’t what the other person wants to
hear. We’ll always speak the truth, not with arrogance or cruelty, but
with compassion and mutual respect.
We are experts. We are innovators. We strive to be better.
We still share Douglas Macmillan’s ambition to ‘stand for
We develop our knowledge and skills, learning from the diverse
perspectives, ideas and experience of others. Progress relies on change,
and we’re bold enough to try new approaches, because calculated risks
can lead to great things.
Success is celebrated and if we fail, we learn from it and try again.
We take pride in what we do and are committed to doing it as best we
