Charities

Why not support one of our charities?

What better source of inspiration is there during challenging training sessions and throughout your race?

Thank you to everyone who has signed up to run for one of our amazing charity partners and good luck for race day!

Join Team Macmillan at the Plymouth Half Marathon with free entry! Cancer is the toughest fight most of us will ever face. And as treatments improve, more and more people are living with cancer in their daily lives. Today around 2 million people in the UK are living with cancer, in 2030 this number will have doubled to 4 million – as will have Macmillan’s workload.

Donations make up 98% of our income, so we simply couldn’t do what we do without you. The money you raise by running for Team Macmillan will help make sure no one has to face cancer alone, from the moment they’re diagnosed, through treatment and beyond.

Team Macmillan will offer you exactly the support you need to have the best Half Marathon experience. “You feel like a rockstar when you run for them. The support was unbelievable… it was the greatest day of my life.” 2013 Team Macmillan Runner.

Together we’ll help ensure no-one faces cancer alone.

We provide the only hospice care in the South West for children with life-limiting conditions, as well as support for the whole family.

The care we offer is wide ranging; respite and short breaks, emergency care, palliative care and end of life care. We operate three hospices; Little Bridge House in North Devon, Charlton Farm in North Somerset and Little Harbour in mid Cornwall.

We currently support over 400 families as well as ongoing support for a growing number of bereaved families.

Our hospices are loving and caring places for every member of the family; a sanctuary for mums and dads, brothers and sisters. There is no mistaking the serious work we do, but our hospices are home-from-home and filled with joy and laughter as we help families to create special memories to last a life time.

Join us in 2016 as we celebrate our 25th Anniversary! Silver up your running gear and raise as much sponsorship as you can, to help us to continue our support for families now, for the next 25 years and beyond.
