I had a friend whose father died of cancer of the throat and I have not seen him since as he had to move away with his mum.. I always looked at charities and thought, "I can't donate enough money to make a difference", but due to my school I came into contact with Macmillan Caring Locally.. I wanted to donate but I didn’t believe I could make a difference and never could if I didn’t have any help.. I decided that as my hair was getting way out of control I should see how many people would sponsor me to shave my head bald.. A couple of weeks later I had £800 to give and one chilly head!".. Thanks Dan, you did make a difference, we have used your money to buy a Spirometer, a vital piece of equipment for the Macmillan Unit.. Caption:..

The Great Wall of China - added 25/10/12.. Angela and Alan Turner have just completed the Great Wall of China for Macmillan.. This is Angela's story: Approaching a milestone birthday two years ago and needing to get fitter I set myself a challenge of trekking the Great Wall of China, a trip which would take me completely out of my comfort zone and require a good amount of physical training.. And so the training began, taking in swimming, walking, hill climbing and generally a lot more exercise.. I also decided to try and raise some funds as people would sponsor me to take on such a challenge.. As my brother-in-law had spent his last few weeks at the Macmillan Unit receiving their wonderful care I decided I would like to raise funds for Macmillan Caring Locally.. At the last minute my husband decided he would like to join the challenge too so we shared the whole experience together.. The trip was organised by ‘Charity Challenge’ and took place at the beginning of October and lasted 8 days, with us trekking for 5 consecutive days.. Well we survived the challenge; as predicted our knees are suffering a little from the thousands of steps but overall the training paid off – hurrah!.. The trek was very varied; we passed through woodland and terraced farmland, following the contours of the hills and mountains in remote areas north of Beijing.. The scenery was fabulous and gave a fascinating insight into a rich culture and history.. We mainly followed old sections of the wall which were in a state of disrepair and quite difficult to walk on – in places only 2ft wide with sheer drops on both sides which required great concentration, no clumsy tripping, this meant we were the only people there all day giving a sense of solitude.. Other days were spent trekking more restored sections with smooth flagstones and hundreds of steps.. On these days we came across quite a few other people on day trips maybe just spending an hour or so there, some of whom were tottering along in their stiletto heels or flip flops – they weren’t hard core like us!.. The challenge was physically demanding as walking on this terrain day after day takes its toll on your feet, legs and back; overall lots of steep inclines to towers and literally thousands of steps, some of which were 2ft high so lots of hauling oneself up.. Overall we trekked approximately 50 miles over 5 days.. It was also challenging in many other ways – no toilets on most parts of the wall so drinking lots of water to stay hydrated presented a slight inconvenience to females after a while….. ‘au naturel’ was the norm – watching out for prickles! Apart from the end of the trek when we luxuriated at a ‘Holiday Inn Express’ in Beijing we stayed at a variety of lodges experiencing local hospitality.. These were in the middle of nowhere which had a range of sanitation and hygiene standards as well as limited facilities – the only guarantee given was hot water and clean sheets – we were happy with that us hard core trekkers! We were well fed – all meals were delicious.. On reflection we look back and feel pleased to have fulfilled all of the challenges that were presented to us, that we were sponsored to undergo, taking on one day at a time.. We remember that those who need the facilities of the Macmillan Unit have far more challenges than we have ever experienced and thank all of those who sponsored us helping to raise some funds towards this little sanctuary for those in need.. Having completed the challenge we are now in the process of collecting the sponsorship pledged beforehand and any donations folk are willing to give.. The joint sum for our fundraising activities now currently stands at just above £4000 which is fantastic.. We would like to thank Neal at Macmillan Caring Locally for his help and support of the venture.. Specsavers Poole - added 17/10/12.. Our grateful thanks to Louise Swash, her colleagues at Specsavers in the Dolphin Centre Poole, and their generous customers for holding a coffee morning and raising an amazing £280.. The 10th Sarah Green Golf Tournament - added 02/10/12.. A group of golfers have celebrated the 10th anniversary of the Sarah Green Golf Tournament by raising a massive £6000 for Macmillan Caring Locally.. Over the past 10 years, the event has raised a huge amount, in excess of £50,000 in honour of Sarah Green (nee Rogers) who sadly lost her battle with Cancer in 2003, aged just 31.. The much needed funds help support the Macmillan Unit at Christchurch Hospital, which is a Specialist Palliative Care Unit for patients in South East Dorset and South West Hampshire.. The 10th Sarah Green Golf Tournament took place on Friday 31st August 2012 at Canford Magna Golf Course.. The event offered a great day of golf in beautiful surroundings along the River Stour, with the opportunity to win the coveted Sarah Green Trophy amongst other prizes, including a prize for the best dressed team.. Following the golf was a 4 course gala dinner and a programme of entertainment.. The winning team were local lads, "The Fore Callers", from Christchurch.. Trust Secretary for Macmillan Caring Locally, Neal Williams, said: “We are delighted that the Sarah Green Golf Tournament has reached the £50,000 total in its 10th year.. This achievement is down to the hard work and dedication of the Rogers family, the Organising Committee, the Volunteers; and the generosity of those taking part.. The money raised each year has enabled us to complete some very important projects in the Macmillan Unit at Christchurch Hospital.. These projects have improved the care we give to our Patients and the support we offer to their Families.. ” Event Organiser, Anthony Rogers, said: “The event has gone from strength to strength and this year we had an amazing entry of 25 teams.. Players of all standards got involved including Ashley Colleff, the current World Junior Golf Champion.. It's a great event to be involved in and I'm really proud of the amount we have raised in my sister's name for Macmillan Caring Locally.. I'm very grateful for the support offered by local golf clubs and business and all the organising committee are already looking forward to next year's event.. Christchurch Junior School - added 30/08/12.. Year 5 students at Christchurch Junior School undertook an apprentice-style project where they were each given £1.. 00 and asked to use it to generate funds which would be donated to a local Charity.. Lots of interesting and inspiring ideas were put into action and the final result was that a massive £779.. 00 was raised for the Macmillan Unit.. We wanted to do something tangible and creative with the money that was raised, so we decided to use it to purchase all the bedding plants and shrubs for the Macmillan Unit garden this season..

Sue, 58, when not sitting at her computer, is usually seen on the golf course or doing short bike-trips in and around Nassereith in the Tyrol, where she has been living since 1971, but on August 12th she will be donning her tricot and cycling 800 miles to raise money for Macmillan Caring Locally, based at the Macmillan Unit at Christchurch Hospital.. "Although I hated it as a child, I do quite a bit of sport in the meantime," says Sue, "but the last time I cycled a distance like that was 12 years ago! Now I'm doing a 60 mile ride every week in addition to my normal training.. And I'm also cutting back on the carbohydrates, to compensate for the extra weight I’ll be carrying!".. The hard work will all be worthwhile for Sue if she succeeds in raising £1,500 for Macmillan Caring Locally.. This amount will buy a portable hospital bed that Macmillan deliver into people’s homes when a patient would prefer to be cared for at home.. It will also fund an O2 saturation machine to be used in the Community by the Palliative Care Sisters.. Sue's father, Don Wright, was diagnosed with cancer five years ago and the charity has been a constant support ever since, enabling her 79 year old Mum, Barbara, to take care of him at home in Bournemouth until only 11 days before he died in January this year.. "When Dad’s illness got worse, it was a very difficult time for me," Sue explained.. "I live so far away in Austria and didn’t know how long Mum would cope, but she was put in touch with Macmillan Caring Locally who has been amazing.. In addition to monitoring Dad’s progress, the palliative nurses helped Mum with paperwork for applications, supplied or advised on equipment to make life easier and came whenever needed for advice or support.. During Dad’s last days, which he spent in the Macmillan Unit at Christchurch hospital, I was able spend a lot of time with him there and was really impressed by what they did for him and how kind they were to us.. "The Macmillan Charity did so much for us, now it's time I did something for them.. We asked for donations to the charity instead of flowers at the funeral, which I am sure was also in Dad's interest.. We collected much more that I had expected, which will go a long way to helping others, and this gave me the incentive to try and raise more.. Her family and her Mum’s neighbours have also been very generous and she hopes other people in the local community will support her in her transeuropean cycle challenge.. Sue is well known in her village for her work as chairwoman of the Active Club and leader of a self-support group as well as at her local Golf Club.. “Every penny that is raised will be going to the Charity as all of my travel expenses will be self financed.. I want to help Macmillan Caring Locally to continue their invaluable work supporting families like mine.. You can sponsor Sue by.. visiting her online fundraising page.. You can pay by credit or debit card, and the money will go directly to Macmillan Caring Locally..

    Descriptive info: MACMILLAN UNIT.. THE MACMILLAN UNIT.. (Please note that the telephone number to use to enquire about a patient on the ward is 01202 705291).. The Macmillan Unit is situated at Christchurch Hospital, and is part of the specialist palliative care service at The Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.. The service offers specialist palliative care to patients with any advanced, progressive, incurable illness with difficult symptoms or problems.. The Macmillan Unit is an NHS Unit; the NHS funds core services but a significant proportion of the funding comes from Macmillan Caring Locally, thanks to the generosity of the local community.. In 2013/14 Macmillan Caring Locally will provide more than £1 million to support the provision of the service.. The specialist palliative care service is made up of an inpatient unit (a ward at the Macmillan Unit) with 16 beds and a dedicated team of inpatient nurses, a team of specialist palliative care community nurses who visit patients at home and in nursing or residential care, a team of doctors, a day centre at the Macmillan Unit which offers some complementary therapies, a team of physiotherapists and occupational therapists, a family support team, and a hospital palliative care team which sees patients in the Royal Bournemouth Hospital.. The specialist palliative care team works closely with the Royal Bournemouth Hospital and Poole General Hospital, with GP services, and with community based generalist palliative care teams in some areas.. Patients are admitted to the Macmillan Unit for treatment of complex or difficult to manage symptoms, or to receive care when they are approaching the end of their life.. It is not a long stay unit.. Many patients are discharged from the Macmillan Unit ward with ongoing support from the specialist palliative care service, either to their own home, or to nursing or residential care, once their symptoms have been controlled.. Patients can be referred by their GP, or hospital consultant.. Referrals are taken from doctors, nurses or other health and social care professionals; self-referrals from patients are also accepted.. Patients will be offered an initial assessment, which is carried out either by a specialist palliative care community nurse, or by a doctor, or jointly – by a senior nurse and doctor together, usually at an outpatient appointment or on a domiciliary visit at home.. Follow up is usually by a specialist palliative care community nurse who liaises with the rest of the specialist palliative care team.. Patients who no longer need the support of the specialist palliative care service are discharged to their primary care team or their hospital  ...   the Patient's life by offering much needed mutual support and understanding from the staff who acknowledge the importance of helping Patients to cope with their illness and the effects of treatment.. The nurses also endeavour to help them deal with any concerns they may have about the future and assist them to live as normal a life as possible, maintaining their independence.. The Day Centre Support Group provides a wide variety of diversional therapy activities.. Many talents are revealed and developed giving a real sense of achievement and fulfillment.. The group functions for the Patients' well being and to enable them to participate in activities and benefit from therapies such as Relaxation, Aromatherapy, Physiotherapy and Self Expression.. FAMILY SUPPORT.. Suffering from cancer is a stressful and difficult journey.. Watching a loved one going through it is emotionally and mentally challenging, which can often be overlooked.. The Macmillan Family Support Team (based at the Macmillan Unit) offer comfort and support to the Families of our Patients.. At a very difficult time, it can be hard to focus on leading a normal life, when all around seems to be falling apart.. The Family Support Team provide valuable advice and will talk through any problems or issues whenever needed.. The care is available from the time that a Patient is referred to the Macmillan Unit, through to bereavement and at any time in the future that there is a need.. The Team provides emotional and mental support, and offers advice on any financial support that may be available.. This care is offered to all members of the Family including children.. FAITH.. ‘Macmillan Caring Locally' built the Chapel at Christchurch Hospital in partnership with Christchurch Hospital League of Friends and the Bournemouth Free Church Council.. Adjacent to the Macmillan Unit, the Chapel provides a haven of peace within the Hospital for all denominations, races and creeds.. THE GARDEN.. The Macmillan Unit has a beautiful landscaped garden, which is the envy of all the wards at Christchurch Hospital.. It is funded by Macmillan and includes an aviary and a well stocked fish pond with waterfall.. The gentle lapping of the water tumbling over the waterfall, added to chirping sound of tropical birds, helps to make this stunning garden a refuge of tranquility for our Patients and Visitors.. THE FUTURE.. The pioneering Macmillan Unit was built in 1974.. Macmillan Caring Locally have set aside funds to rebuild the Macmillan Unit in 2013/2014.. The vision for the new Macmillan Unit is for it to be the benchmark by which future palliative care wards will be based..
