GLASGOW ’84 COMMITTEE
2012 ART SHOW
In 2011 the Glasgow`84 Committee donated £167,089 to Macmillan
Cancer Support. This was the largest amount raised by any one group in
Scotland. The total passed to the charity since 1984 is now £2,521,160.
The annual Art Show/Sale is the biggest of our yearly fundraising events.
This year it returns to the splendid galleries at M&Co, Caledonia House,
Inchinnan, Renfrewshire thanks to the generosity of Iain McGeoch,
M&Co Chairman and his Staff. The gallery is spacious, comfortable, and
well lit so browsing can be as leisurely as the public desire. There is extensive parking and good road
directions courtesy of the A.A.
Several new artists are joining us this year plus some graduates from the Glasgow School of Art. Most of
our loyal favourites are returning. Over 600 pieces of art will be displayed with prices ranging from a few
pounds to several thousand pounds.

Macmillan requires 97% funding from voluntary donations and is tackling the problem head on with
locally-focussed, innovative services to meet the needs of cancer patients and their families in Glasgow
and the surrounding area. The charity provides a range of medical, financial and emotional support to
help people living with cancer FROM THE MOMENT THEY ARE DIAGNOSED.
There are now 106 Macmillan Nurses in the west of Scotland. It costs £50,000 to fund ONE Macmillan
nurse for ONE year. The Nurse Information Helpline, based in Glasgow, is taking thousands of calls every
month from patients, families and carers.
ONE IN THREE OF US WILL GET CANCER.
Macmillan is investing in vital, ground-breaking and life-changing
services in Glasgow and the west of Scotland to ensure everyone
affected by cancer has a team of people in their corner supporting them
every step of the way.
Glasgow has the highest cancer incidence in Europe so we need your help to enable Macmillan to support
cancer patients and their families.
