Can you please help NALC with your donation?

NALC is at a critical stage of our development. 

For over 30 years NALC was supported by Macmillan Cancer Support. However, Macmillan has had to reduce this support over the past few years, and NALC must now work hard to become entirely financially self-sufficient. 

We now receive only minimal funding from Macmillan.

A dedicated NALC sub-committee has produced an agreed action plan which includes ways of reducing our expenses with a variety of different fundraising initiatives.

Please make a donation now.


Please help us by donating to NALC. All contributions gratefully accepted
