Macmillan Cancer Support’s income rose by £34m last year, an increase of 22 per cent, its annual accounts show.

The cancer charity’s annual review, which covers 2013, shows that its overall income was up from £155.7m in 2012 to £189.7m last year.

Macmillan said that legacy income, its largest source of funds, grew by 16 per cent to £59.2m.

Direct marketing income was up almost 20 per cent to £38.5m, and income from its World’s Biggest Coffee Morning fundraising event rose by 34 per cent to £20.3m. Macmillan said it recruited 405,000 new supporters during the course of the year.

The charity's overall voluntary income grew from £100.8m in 2012 to £126.5m last year. Total fundraising costs were up by £7.8m to £58.1m.

The charity’s overall spending was up from £163.3m last year to £181.1m in 2013, meaning it made a surplus of £8.6m last year, compared with a loss of £7.6m in the previous year.

Staff costs grew from £44.8m in 2012 to £50.5m last year. The charity’s workforce grew from 1,171 to 1,305 over the same period, the accounts show. 

One unnamed staff member received the charity’s highest pay package of between £170,000 and £180,000, the same as in last year’s accounts.
