HUDDERSFIELD workers are giving their small change to help raise cash for Macmillan Cancer Relief.
Local people are taking part in the Huddersfield Macmillan branch's Bring A Pound To Work appeal on Friday, July 15.
They are being asked to bring £1 - or more - to work on that day.
The cash will be collected from workplaces on the day and be used for the Calderdale and Huddersfield Macmillan Appeal.
Honley woman Doreen Horsfall is supporting the appeal day.
Doreen, 61, is hoping all 40 employees at her workplace - Hinchliffe's Farm Shop at Netherton - will join the effort.
Doreen, who has worked in the farm shop tearoom since it opened three years ago, is supporting the Macmillan charity because three of her friends have been affected by cancer.
Her best friend was diagnosed with breast cancer two years ago - just two years after losing her husband to prostate cancer.
Doreen's workmate, Lynn Hirst, was then diagnosed with breast cancer.
Thankfully, after treatment, Doreen's best friend and Lynn have recovered.
Doreen said: "You never think it will happen to anyone you know. My friends are some of the lucky ones.
"The Macmillan nurses at Huddersfield do a good job," added Doreen.
She and her workmates took part in Bring A Pound To Work Day last year and raised more than £140.
She said: "Hopefully we will do well this year. It is down to the customers, because it was them who really boosted our total last time.
"They were very generous. After all, a pound is not a lot of money."
The appeal is collecting money to improve cancer services in the area by providing two new Macmillan nurses.
A specialist GP will be appointed to share knowledge about cancer with other health professionals.
An existing Macmillan Care Project, which supports patients and their families at home, will also be extended.
To help Bring A Pound To Work Day you need to register by calling the Macmillan Cancer Relief office on 01484 342134.
