Tuesday 29 November is #givingtuesday, the day to support your favourite charity.
Launched in the UK in 2014, the day has gone on to become one of Britain’s biggest days for charities, raising millions of pounds for good causes.
This #givingtuesday we are asking you to support our Charity of Choice, Macmillan Cancer Support.
Cancer affects one in 91 people in our operating area. Our hope is that by working with Macmillan Cancer Support, we can raise vital funds to help local people get the support they need through difficult times.
Laura Foreman, Macmillan Cancer Support Fundraising Manager – Edinburgh said:
Giving Tuesday is a day to celebrate and encourage charitable giving and we are delighted to have the support of East Coast Buses on this important day. Anything you can donate will help us to support people living with and affected by cancer in your local area.
If you would like to help Macmillan help local people, you can donate on our Just Giving Page or by texting Lothian to 70550.
If you would like help with practical issues, have questions about treatment, or just want someone to listen, you can call Macmillan Cancer Support on 0808 808 0000, Monday to Friday, 9am – 8pm.
