Macmillian would like to say a very big thank you to Dave Allen,
who raised just over a £1000 with the help of friends and work
colleagues. Dave who is a Health Improvement Specialist

form of child cancer at the age of 26 and subsequently left a young
Dave said he has always liked golf but has never been very
good at it and always wanted to participate in an event and this
sad story spurred him on to organise a small golfing event.
The golfing event took place on 7th October 2011 at Crook Golf
Club and 50 people attended and was a great success.
Also there have been party games with staff and raffles at various
locations held to help boost the charity fund. Dave
would like to carry on fundraising to support this charity so would
appreciate any donations or raffle prizes.
A cheque for £1024 was handed to Michelle Muir, Macmillan
Fundraising Manager on 15th Feb 2012 at Dr Piper House,
'Every aspect of my emergency care was dealt with quickly,
efficiently and professionally with full explanations and
compassion from all staff involved'.
