MACMILLAN Cancer Support is inviting Knutsfordians, keen to find out more about leaving a gift to the charity in their will, to an exclusive supporter event in Tatton Park.

The event will run between 11.30am-1.30pm on Thursday July 3, and guests will have a chance to enjoy a light lunch and explore the grounds.

As well as members of the Macmillan team, former head gardener at Tatton, Sam Youd, will be on hand to talk to guests about the health benefits of gardening, his time at Tatton Park and some of the sights on offer to visitors in Tatton’s gardens. 

Julia Periac, legacy relationship manager at Macmillan Cancer Support, said: “Every year we try to organise a few special events for some of our supporters, so many of whom have been personally affected by cancer.

“The events provide an excellent opportunity for us to meet face-to-face, enabling them to share their experiences and ask any questions they may have about the charity’s work.”

The event also provides an opportunity for people who are keen on the idea of leaving a gift in their will to find out more.

“This year we are encouraging people to think about their legacy and the notion of legacy in general,” added Julia.

“Gifts in wills make up a third of Macmillan’s entire income and we couldn’t do what we do without them.”

Places are limited.  Anyone interested in attending should contact Julia on 07540671511 or email by June 30.
