Participants will receive a free fundraising pack, which includes invitations and donation envelopes, a donation box, paper tea light holders and a guide with ideas.Hannah Redmond, head of national events marketing at Macmillan Cancer Support said:“Our supporters have told us that they love the opportunity to get together with friends and family in the name of a good cause and that’s what Macmillan’s new Summer Lights fundraiser is all about. It’s a celebration of the summer and of the people that light up your life, as well as an opportunity to stand together for people affected by cancer.” 201 total views, 1 views today Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis24 202 total views, 2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis24 About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.
