Dean's raises record breaking £29,903.70 for charity


Family run Dean’s Garden Centre, based in York and Scarborough, has raised the life-changing amount of £29,903.70 for Macmillan Cancer Support.


Dean’s Garden Centre chose Macmillan Cancer Support as their 2018 Charity of the Year and throughout the year held numerous fundraising activities, competitions, merchandise, cash collections and donations from the Partners themselves.


Sarah Child, local Fundraising Manager for Macmillan Cancer Support said “We are truly amazed at this wonderful donation, which is enough to fund  a Macmillan nurse for more than six months, helping cancer patients right here in York and Scarborough, live life as fully as they can. A huge thank you to everyone at Dean’s Garden Centre for their dedication to raising funds throughout the year and to their customers for their generosity.”


Laura Dean, Charity Co-ordinator at Dean’s Garden Centre  said “Macmillan has a special place in our employee’s and customers hearts, which is clear from the amount raised – this is the most we have ever raised for a charity partner and we are delighted that it will make such a difference locally.”


Dean’s is a family run garden centre that has been serving gardeners in North Yorkshire and the surrounding areas for over 50 years.


Macmillan is the UK’s leading cancer supporter charity giving personal, one to one care and support to thousands of people every day. Macmillan is here to help everyone with cancer live life as fully as they can, providing physical, financial and emotional support.


Every two minutes someone is the UK is diagnosed with cancer. We know we are not reaching 48% of people with cancer which is why local support, like Dean’s Garden Centre is vital. If you would like to find out more please contact Sarah Child on 0300 1000 200 or email


In North & East Yorkshire there are around 9,600 new cancer diagnoses every year and whilst cancer isn’t always life threatening, it is always life changing. Regardless of the diagnosis life will never be the same again. Whatever cancer throws your way, Macmillan is right there with you.
