A Macmillan Cancer supporter event was held at Alnwick Garden this week. The team was on hand to show the health benefits of gardening as well as raise awareness about the importance of leaving gifts to charity in wills.
Cancer sufferer, Cuth Earl 69, a retired headteacher was also there to discuss his cancer journey and the important role that Macmillan played in ensuring that he and his family were able to cope with, what he describes as a ‘seemingly hopeless situation’.
Mr Earl and his wife are keen to share their positive experience of the help that
Macmillan can provide and have experience volunteering. Pictured are Macmillan fund-raising manager for Northumberland, Jane Curry, legacy relationship manager Victoria Sumner and Wilma Hunter, treasurer of the Morpeth and District Macmillan fund-raising committee.
