I'm all for charity but how exactly does this qualify as a deal?

Dont be such a miserable ****

If it's a suggested donation I think I'll just give 50p, even more of a bargain! Thanks OP!

Having lost 2 close members of my family in the last few years to cancer, I can't praise enough the work that macmillan cancer support do. Hot from me, my little girl will like this.

99p to Poundland, 1p to Charity.

I'll be honest.. If you really cared about the cause you'd stick that shiny £1 coin into the nearest collection tub
At least that way you'll know that the majority of that is actually going towards your chosen cause

Although (And I'll probably be hated on for saying this) your generous donations would probably be better off going towards cancer research charities rather than "support"

And I'll go even further to say that a large portion of your tax's go towards NHS treatment, support and providing welfare benefits for those suffering from cancer. Although there are plenty of cases where people are not getting the care they should be from the NHS I'm having difficulty finding what this charity actually does..

The Macmillan wards are for terminal cancer patients, I used to do some Alarm work in a couple. Caring, wonderful people, in a persons last days. Don't be so bloody flippant, these people are angels to their patients, and the family that are shortly going to lose a loved one.

What a curious thing to say given that the OP has already said that ALL proceeds will go to charity.

I work for Macmillan Cancer Support - their wards are not just for 'terminally ill' patients! It's all about supporting those living with and THROUGH cancer and their families. Unfortunately until a cure/immunisation is found (which I'm pretty sure will not be in my life time) people will continue to need support while they travel through this very tough time in their lives. And Macmillan do not only fund nurses but benefits advisers too and dietitians etc.....

I just give them some money when I have it, they was great when I lost my Dad last year plus when my wife lost hers as well .

The ones I worked on were for terminal patients, so my apologies, but at least I knew what they were...
