Macmillan Charity Race Day at York Racecourse - Saturday, 13 June

Volunteers at last year's Macmillan Race Day

This Saturday, (13 June) a team of volunteers from Rollits will give up their time to help with fundraising at the Macmillan Race Day at York Racecourse.

The team will be at the racecourse all day to help Macmillan's "Volunteer Army" raise hundreds of thousands of pounds for the charity.

The Macmillan Race Day at York Racecourse is the charity's single biggest fundraising event in this region, and has now raised almost £6 million to ensure that no one should have to face cancer alone.

Last year the sum raised in one day exceeded £340,000.

Macmillan Cancer Support was founded in 1911 by Douglas Macmillan and is a registered charity.  They provide practical, medical and financial support and push for better cancer care for all those diagnosed with the disease.

This year there's a new way to get involved. Macmillan supporters both at the races and at home will have the chance to bid on-line for some amazing auction lots up to and including Raceday. Prizes include a golf break to Marbella, diamond jewellery, sports memorabilia and custom guitars with more VIP experiences and prizes to be added closer to Raceday. To see the full list of auction lots and place a bid visit www.macmillanyorkraceday

Partner John Lane said "We were delighted to be given the opportunity to help Macmillan with their fundraising activities at the Macmillan Race Day in York again this year."

"I am personally very grateful to my colleagues for giving up their time on Saturday to help raise funds for this magnificent charity."
