Ninewells Cancer Campaign has operated with a series of Special Appeals (raising £17million in total); in between these Appeals money has continued to be generously donated by groups and organisations, wills and legacies, funeral donations and donations from Charitable Trusts, companies and individuals. All decisions on projects to be funded have always been made in discussion with the the scientists and clinicians at the University of Dundee and Ninewells Hospital.
Over the years NCC has built up an enviable reputation and has received substantial unsolicited funding. Much of this was undoubtedly due to the time and effort put in by Jacqui, attending and speaking to groups and having photos with cheque presentations in the press. DC Thomson has been very supportive over these years in the amount of coverage that has been allocated to Jacqui and Dennis!
