Donate to Mackenzie's Appeal

The Furniss family

Jason Furniss – who is one of our Grangemouth depot colleagues – and his wife Kimberley have launched an urgent fundraising appeal for their daughter Mackenzie and you could help!

Nine year old Mackenzie, who has already beaten the extremely aggressive childhood cancer neuroblastoma once before, found out that the cancer had come back in November 2012. There’s no relapse treatment protocol for Neuroblastoma available in the UK so her best chance of beating the cancer lies in Germany. They need to raise £350,000 to cover the cost of the clinical treatment she needs to give her a chance of life.

Her mum Kimberly said: “Mackenzie is a very special nine year old who has overcome so very much in the past three and a half years. She has never complained, she just does what she knows she has to do. When Mackenzie grows up she really wants to be a nurse. Her daddy and I will do all that we can to make this happen.”

There are many ways you can help:

  • Visit Mackenzie’s fundraising page on JustGiving to donate
  • Hold a fundraising event to benefit Mackenzie’s Appeal – contact the Fundraising Team on 020 7284 0800 to find out more!
  • Donate by text message by texting MACK83 and your amount: £1, £2, £3, £4, £5 or £10, to 70070
  • You can also send a cheque made payable to the ‘NCCA UK – Mackenzie Furniss Appeal’ to: NCCA UK, 5 Harmood Grove, London, NW1 8DH

Thank you!
