Leading decorating and DIY specialists Leyland SDM have made a huge donation of more than £100,000 to Macmillan Cancer Support, handing over a bumper cheque for £111,683 after fundraising events across its 32 London stores. A significant proportion of that amount - £50,000 – was raised through the business’ Do it For London campaign, which encouraged customers to donate at least £1 when buying products from October onwards. Macmillan said the donation would help them to continue to support cancer care professionals and the thousands of Londoners with cancer who may have faced disruption to their treatment or appointments due to the pandemic. Jonathan Jennings, CEO at Leyland SDM, said: “We are delighted to be able to make this huge donation to Macmillan, which is the result of three campaigns run across our stores. The generosity of our customers has been astounding and we are extremely grateful to them for getting involved so wholeheartedly. It’s a cause that is clearly very close to people’s hearts."
