Argos stores in Scotland raise over £20,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support

Sixty-eight Argos stores in Scotland that took part in a Macmillan Cancer Support fundraising drive last month have raised £20,727 for the charity.

The sum is enough to fund 740 hours of Macmillan nursing care for people living with cancer.

Each store organised its own individual activities and encouraged customers to get involved. These ranged from charity raffles and sponsored silences to bake sales,

Christmas jumper days and even sponsored leg waxes.

Catriona Munn, senior partnership manager at Macmillan Cancer Support said: “We’re so grateful for all the support we’ve received from Argos colleagues and their customers since partnering with them in 2015.

“We want to say a huge thank you to everyone in the Scottish Argos stores for their enthusiasm and for raising this fantastic amount.”

Since voting to support Macmillan as their UK charity partner in 2015, Argos colleagues and customers across the UK have raised £1.5 million, funding over 53,000 hours of Macmillan nursing care.
