Art For Macmillan Cancer Support holds exhibitions and events to help raise funds for provision of care for cancer sufferers and their families and is very reliant on donations of exhibition areas by commercial property owners and management for it’s success. We would therefore like to thank members of the local business community who have offered us their support and we urge people to visit our exhibitions held in various cafes and retail outlets around Southport.
