In 1911, a young man named Douglas Macmillan watched his father die of cancer. His father's pain and suffering moved Douglas so much, he founded the 'Society for the Prevention and Relief of Cancer'. 
Douglas wanted advice and information to be provided to all people with cancer, homes for patients at low or no cost, and voluntary nurses to attend to patients in their own homes.

Today much of Douglas' legacy lives on. Macmillan are still a source of support for people living with cancer today and  are a force for improving cancer care. Watch this video for the charities timeline.

The gallery is open Tuesday and Thursday-Saturday 10-5

thank you for your continued support
