Macmillan Cancer Support Jersey has been chosen as the local charity partner of the Standard Chartered Jersey Marathon 2017. The event will benefit the charity, which provides free practical, emotional and social support to Islanders living with cancer and their families and friends.
Andy Smith, director of Macmillan Jersey, said: “We are delighted to have been chosen to be a beneficiary of this year’s Standard Chartered Jersey Marathon. Macmillan Jersey relies on the generosity and support of Islanders to enable us to help anyone affected by cancer on the Island. Being the Marathon’s chosen charity will allow us to build greater awareness of our services and provide practical and emotional support to anyone touched by cancer.”
At The Oasis, Macmillan Jersey provide cancer support every step of the way to anyone touched by cancer, whether they have been diagnosed themselves or are a relative, friend or colleague of someone who has cancer. Our Cancer Information and Support Centre on the second floor of the Lido Medical Centre is open 10am to 4pm, Monday to Friday and provides a warm welcoming environment, a host of information, expert help, emotional support and an opportunity to ask questions about cancer, its treatment and side effects and how it affects your life and the lives of your loved ones.

All funds raised by runners will be split equally between Macmillan Jersey and Standard Chartered’s own global initiative “Seeing is Believing” (SiB).
