In November 2017, Just Energy participated in the #GivingTuesday global movement as a way to pay it forward as we celebrated our 20th anniversary while affirming our culture of community care. With the help of our UK staff, our employees chose Macmillan Cancer Support as their charity of choice to donate £10,000, and in January 2018 the promise was fulfilled as we presented the charity with the donation.
Macmillan Cancer Support funds the design, construction and furnishing of hospital and community-based cancer information and support centres in the UK.
A visit to their cancer information and support centre provides people affected by cancer with the chance to ask questions and talk through their concerns with specialist staff and trained volunteers. The centres offer resources such as booklets and leaflets about cancer, and information on financial support. Many centres have benefits advisers available to help and some offer complementary therapies too.
Our donation of £10,000 could help run a small Macmillan information and support centre for over a month. It will help…
“We are grateful for the generous support of Just Energy and look forward to working with them to further support people living with cancer.” - Paresh Nar - Fundraising Manager, Buckinghamshire.
Through the foundation, we're grateful to help play a part in allowing Macmillan to be there for patients, families and communities every step of the way, coping with a disease that affects so many.
