FUNDRAISING NEWS: CancerBACUP sets £1 million target to support helpline

A £1 million appeal has kicked off to recruit specialist cancer nurses for a new contact centre in Scotland. CancerBACUP, the charity that helps people live with cancer, has teamed up with Scottish newspaper, the Sunday Mail, to launch the Angel Appeal.

It aims to raise funds to recruit specialist nurses, who provide support, information and advice to people with cancer and their families through the freephone helpline.

The Sunday Mail is focusing on the work of the nurses in a series of features, which the paper hopes will urge individuals and businesses to make a donation or organise fundraising activities.

A dedicated phone line has been set up to handle donations.

The £1 million, which the newspaper aims to raise by 2003, will fund five nurses who will enable CancerBACUP to take more than 18,000 additional calls per year.
