Homebase becomes only partner to support Macmillan Cancer Support home-related grants

Home and garden retailer Homebase has extended its partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support for a further three years but with a new aim of working to provide home-related grants for people affected by cancer.

The grants will also help their families with the extra costs that living with cancer can bring.

People living with cancer can use a Macmillan grant, which is a one-off payment of £350, for everything from essential home upgrades and energy bills to items such as duvets, microwaves, clothing and washing machines and even for a break away from cancer treatments.

To raise money for the charity, Homebase will continue its in-store fundraising and will make it easier for customers to donate through QR codes and till points. Special product promotions will also be rolled out and Homebase teams will take part in themed Macmillan activities and challenges.

Claire Abercrombie, Homebase director of customer and communications, said: “Our team voted to work with Macmillan and have done an excellent job over the last two years raising money to help support its services in communities across the UK. By making a longer-term commitment to our partnership we can focus our support on home-related grants and help those living with cancer feel safe and comfortable in their homes.”
