Voluntary Sector: Macmillan plugs green wristband

Macmillan Cancer Relief is hoping to generate money and consumer awareness with a wristband.

The green-coloured accessory is being sold and promoted in-store by building society Nationwide, which previously sold Macmillan badges in its branches.

Macmillan press officer Sunita Sharma said the charity was keen to cash in on the wristband trend. The band will be promoted by actress Samantha Bond and radio DJ Doctor Fox.

The bands, available for a suggested donation of £1, are engraved with the charity's tagline 'For people living with cancer', as well as the URL for its website, www.macmillan.org.uk.
