Just the ticket for people with cancer

Together we are powering nursing hours

There are 2.5 million people living with cancer in the UK. One in two people are likely to get cancer in their lifetimes. Cancer can affect everything, including a person's body, relationships and finances.

Macmillan Cancer Support provides practical, emotional and personal support to people affected by cancer every year.

The charity is there to support people during treatment, help with work and money worries, and listen when people need to talk about their feelings.

In 2015 we lost a much-loved member of our team, Chris Glaba and since then have gone on to raise in excess of £402,000 in his memory.

In January 2020, Skiddle committed to raising a further £250,000 by the end of 2023. We’re right on course, but we can only hit this target with your help!

Life with cancer is still your life and Macmillan is there to help you live it.

thank you



meet Jack and Duncan



Jack and Duncan will be running the London Marathon in October in aid of Macmillan.

Jack, one of our Business Development Managers based in London.

“A glass knee’d, beer-drinking 26-year old who had never run more than 10k in his life. After going to watch the 2021 marathon (very hungover) I decided it was my time to give this a whirl. However, I think I would have probably backed out if Duncan wasn't so up for it, so thanks for that Duncan…

My thoughts were “If I can’t do it at 26 then I’ll never do it.” It was the perfect combination for a lifestyle change and to raise some great money for charity at the same time - contributing to Skiddle's mammoth support of Macmillian. So many of us are affected by cancer, so chuck in what you can afford and get down to London on October 2nd to see me in a world of pain.”

Duncan, Head of New Business based in London.

“I have pretty much been allergic to exercise most of my adult life. That all changed in January 2021, when, looking down the barrel (and over my huge beer belly) at my fast approaching 40th birthday (and with some not so subtle ‘encouragement’ from my daughter, Freya), I decided that enough was enough and it was time to take action.

Getting fit and healthy was hard, giving up beer (I still have an occasional one!) was even harder! But here we are, 14 months later and I’m in the shape of my life. I’m so excited to run the marathon, and we hope to raise an incredible amount of money for Macmillian. So please - friends, family and guest list blaggers, dig deep and donate for such a great cause!”

What we've been doing

Microrave

A brand new dance music experience landed at Highest Point in 2022. Created to assist in raising vital funds for Macmillan Cancer Support, in partnership with Skiddle, the tent saw some of the biggest DJs and live acts performing over the course of the festival appearing before a very intimate and limited audience, on a series of mini shows.

The Mircorave hosted a run of special auctions to raise money for the charity, selling off a range of prizes, from wigs and microwavable meals - hence the name - to tickets to next year’s festival.

Annual Skiddle BBQ in honour of Chris

Chris was the life and soul of the party, and a great friend and colleague to many people of Skiddle, he would never have passed up an opportunity of free food and drink, especially if it was all being paid for by Rich so in his honour and for his birthday, each year we host the annual Skiddle BBQ at our HQ.

Festival Challenge

10 music festivals, 48 hours, 1,000 miles travelled, Over 20 hours travelling, 4 million people reached UK-wide

In 2017, over the August Bank Holiday weekend we decided to undertake a challenge no one in the UK has ever attempted before.

We visited 10 music festivals in under 48 hours to help raise funds for Macmillan. Our friend Chris, was a big music lover and keen festival goer, so we decided this challenge was a great way to honour him, raise some money for Macmillan, and celebrate our love of British Music Festivals and the unique atmosphere so many people enjoy.

Our challenge began in the North West - at Creamfields Festival in Warrington. From there we travelled to Solfest in Cumbria, Lost Village in Lincolnshire, Moovin Festival in Stockport, Camper Calling in Warwickshire, Beermageddon in Worcestershire, Music On The Green and A New Day in Kent, South West Four in London and Victorious Festival in Portsmouth.

At each festival, we also decided to take part in a stunt or challenge to help champion our cause: main stage appearances, selfies with headliners, shout-outs from DJs, backstage meet and greets... you name it, we did it.

Time was tight and reaching each festival on time, avoiding traffic and gate closures without delay was a huge race against the clock. Eventually we arrived at Victorious Festival in Portsmouth with 15 minutes to spare!

The day was a huge success, everyone enjoyed their breakfast and total of £240 was raised which was split between Macmillan and Alder Hey

Now we're looking forward to doing loads more fundraising events!
