    Default N'Ukes support Macmillan Cancer Support

    Couldnt resist sharing this.

    N'Ukes played our gig for the great cause that is Macmillan Cancer Support. This is a charity that hits home with me, I lost my Uncle to Cancer a couple of years ago and he spoke SO highly of Macmillan.

    They tried to force a fee on us (bless them) but of course we donated it to the fundraising.

    Shame the video wasn't the best audio wise but feedback was great. And remember this, many in N'Ukes have been playing only a couple of months! If you want to support Macmillan in your own way there is a link on the post. They really do amazing work.

    Well done guys, bloody brilliant story.
    I have lost several people to cancer and can honestly say that the support and care that Macmillan provide is nothing short of phenomenal. They truly are angels incarnate.
    I'm off to make another donation.

    MacMillan have as great a reach in the UK as Komen has this side of the Atlantic, they are also super nice, did a collection in the London Underground about 15 years ago.

    Hi Dave,
    very sorry to hear about this cruel strike of destiny in such short succession, it was really a one-day affair through Uni, stood outside Hendon Central around Christmas time.
