Team story

[p]Thanks for taking the time to visit our Virgin Money Giving page. [/p][p][br][/p][p][b]Macmillan 72 hole Golf Challenge[/b][/p][p][b]On Friday, 26th July 2019 Nine lady Golfers [/b][/p][p][b]from Langdon Hills Golf Club [/b][/p][p][b]will take on this Challenge – read their story.[/b][/p][p][b]Why are we doing it?[/b][/p][p]We are nine ladies who play golf. We’re no spring chickens, but we are determined; up for the challenge of 72 holes in one day and WE NEED YOU! We need your support and your help to raise as much as we can to support this amazing charity.[/p][p]We play golf at Langdon Hills Golf Club, which is based in Horndon on the Hill, Essex. We have a large contingent of lady golfers and we have, as a group, been affected by various forms of cancer. In recent years we have had ladies who have fought and won their battles; and it is for them that we are accepting Macmillan’s challenge. In fact, one member of our team of ladies is currently living with cancer; she is an inspiration to us all.[/p][p]72 holes in one day is tough – don’t get me wrong – its 24 miles of walking whilst being challenged by the course as well as the elements. We will have an amazing team of Superheroes who will be with us for the day with food, water and encouragement 100% of the way.[/p][p]But without YOUR help, this is all for nothing. [/p][p]We need to raise money to support MacMillan Cancer Care. [/p][p][b]Can 9 ladies raise £9,999.99? with YOUR help, YES, WE CAN![/b][/p][p][b]Macmillan Cancer Care – how the money is spent[/b][/p][p]£1,000 ? pays for a Macmillan nurse for almost a week[/p][p]£500? pays for a Macmillan professional to attend an advanced course to help people with pain and symptom management[/p][p]£410? pays for the running of a large Macmillan information and support centre for a day[/p][p]£200? pays for a Macmillan Grant that helps a person living with cancer heat their home when they really need to[/p][p]£96? pays for 200 copies of the Macmillan [i]End of Life[/i]booklet, produced in partnership with Marie Curie[/p][p]£51? pays for a financial advisor on the Macmillan Support Line to deal with a call or web enquiry[/p][p]£40? pays for cancer self-help and support group to hold their first meeting[/p][p]£30? pays for a Tom’s Gift to help a child with cancer going through treatment[/p][p]£15? pays for a Macmillan Support worker for an hour[/p][p]What more can we say? We need this for all the people who currently need help or will need it in the future. Please be as generous as you can but remember, every donation, no matter how small, is vital to continue this amazing work.
