We've Done It!!! 53,000

We have just smashed our target to run a Macmillan Cancer Support Nurse for a YEAR!!! It's taken over 3 years but tonight I can confirm that we have raised over 53,000!!! During a year, our nurse will care for 137 Cancer Patients, provide support for their families and signpost them to the many other wonderful things that Macmillan do. I am lost for words, quite emotional and in awe of the awesome people that helped to achieve this wonderful gift. This has changed my life and I can't believe how many great people there are out there. You are heros! Well done you lot! Especially Biffer!

Money is still coming in so thank you

My hat off to you Alex, really well done. Your dad would be very proud of you. 55,000 is a huge amount of money.
Be proud of yourself and have a safe and wonderful trip round Scotland.
