Coomers Timber & Building Supplies were delighted to present The Haslemere and District Committee of Macmillan Cancer Support with a cheque for £3,551.64 on 16 March. The local builders’ merchant adopted Macmillan as its charity of the year in 2016 and raised the money at corporate events including a charity Golf Day, via in-store collections, and participation in the Macmillan World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.
Macmillan Cancer Support provides specialist care, information and financial support to people affected by cancer. As well as helping with the medical needs of those affected by cancer, Macmillan also looks at the social, emotional and practical impact cancer can have, and campaigns for better cancer care. The Haslemere & District Committee was formed over 30 years ago and works tirelessly to raise funds locally.
Thanks to the continued support of customers and staff, over £21,000 has been raised for Coomers’ annual nominated charities since 2010. This year the award-winning family business – with branches at Haslemere, Bordon & Oakhanger – is supporting Broadlands Group Riding for the Disabled, based in Medstead.
