Short freezing cold days. Long, dark, lonely nights. For the millions of people living with cancer in the UK, winter can be the toughest time of all.
But for three chilly nights along London’s Southbank – a beacon of hope shone through.
A UK-first hologram of support lights up London
Since 2004, we’ve been standing side by side with Macmillan Cancer Support to help over 3,000 people living with cancer to stay warm without the worry.
From 29th November to 1st December, we joined forces once more to spread Christmas spirit to those that need it most. Bringing together innovative hologram technology and the magic of community spirit – we helped people to project their own personal messages of hope into London’s night sky.
The best news? This breathtaking lightshow didn’t just bring people together. It also helped us to take our total raised for Macmillan in 2017 to more than £100,000.
