We are very proud to announce a major new partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support, with the aim of raising funds to help Macmillan continue their great work. With every new policy bought directly through our website, we will donate 50 pence plus VAT to Macmillan Cancer Support. So not only will you be receiving a comprehensive motor breakdown cover policy from one of the fastest growing motor assistance providers in the UK, you will also be helping to raise funds for people affected by cancer.
The excellent job that Macmillan undertakes is the fundamental reason we have decided to choose them as our charity partner. It is a poignant fact that in the next five years almost one in two people will get cancer at some point in their lives. It is the toughest fight most of us will ever face. That’s why Macmillan is here – to support individuals and families in need, with medical, practical and emotional support. From help with money worries and advice about how to explain a diagnosis to your children, to help understanding treatment, Macmillan is there. Supporting families affected by all aspects of cancer is at the heart of what Macmillan does. Below are just some amazing facts about Macmillan.
If we are to step back and think, not only about the devastating nature of the illness, but also the financial impact it can have, the choice to help Macmillan becomes even clearer. Just £203 could help fund a Macmillan nurse, physiotherapist, dietitian, pharmacist or occupational therapist for a working day.
There are now 2.5 million people living with or beyond cancer in the UK and the demand for Macmillan’s services has never been greater. In the next 15 years this figure is set to hit 4 million people living with or beyond cancer. Over 98% of Macmillan’s funding comes from the generosity of the general public so your support does make a real difference.
We hope that you will get behind the team at startrescue.co.uk in backing the efforts of Macmillan Cancer Support to reach and improve the lives of everyone affected by cancer. We would also like to thank our previous charitable allegiance, the World Land Trust. startrescue.co.uk worked with the WLT to offset unavoidable greenhouse gas emissions associated with our vehicle rescues in the UK and abroad. We wish WLT all the best for their future endeavours, however, we will remain in contact.
