Sarah Millican Charity Contributions
Hugely successful geordie comedian Sarah Millican has been raising yet more money for cancer charity Macmillan Cancer Support. Fans that attended her recent gigs have been incredibly generous and contributed to the huge total of £41,634.91 over the course of the first leg of the tour from September to December 2013; volunteers collected any and all contributions in buckets at the end of the show. Fingers crossed the amount will continue to rise as the second part of the tour gets underway. Macmillan Cancer Support is a charity that offers help, support, and guidance to cancer sufferers and their families.
It’s not the first time that Sarah Millican charity work has helped out Macmillan Cancer Support, in April 2012 she won £20,000 on the popular TV show Deal or No Deal. She came close to winning £100,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support but came away with a lesser amount after accepting the deal from the Banker. This makes a total of over £60,000 raised and won by Sarah Millican charity and donated to Macmillan Cancer Support so far, as the second leg of her tour gets underway we can only hope that her fans will continue to act as generously as they have so far to add to the total.
Millican split from her partner unexpectedly in 2004 and first took an interest in comedy and theatre around that time, by 2008 she was an award winner and her success only grew from then. Her third show was shown in 2010 and marked the beginning of her mainstream popularity and success. She was invited onto various panel shows such as 8 out of 10 Cats, Mock the Week, and QI. A major indicator of her success is the beginning and renewal of The Sarah Millican Television Programme which began airing in early 2012 and was continued in early 2013. Millican recently married long-time partner and fellow comedian Gary Delaney, after being together for 7 years but living apart they’re now living together in their Manchester home.
