Should you purchase any items from the Shop, you will be contracting with Macmillan Cancer Support Trading Limited ("we", "us", "our") on the terms outlined below. We are a company registered in England and Wales (no: 2779446), registered VAT 668265007, registered office: 89 Albert Embankment, London SE1 7UQ. We are a wholly owned subsidiary company of Macmillan Cancer Support, to which we give all of our profits.
If you place an online order to purchase any items from the Shop, this represents an offer from you to us to purchase an item, which is accepted by us when we send you an email confirmation of your order.
Items listed on the Shop are subject to availability and it is not always possible for us to inform you at the time you place your order whether the goods you want are still available for purchase.
If we are unable to fulfil your order or part of your order, we will inform you of this and will ask you how you would prefer to proceed, for example cancellation, a full or partial refund, or a substitute item.
We reserve the right to refuse to accept your order. We may not accept your order, for example, where:
- The products are out of stock
- The products are incorrectly priced
- The products do not satisfy our quality control standards
- Payment authorisation has been declined or otherwise payment for the product is not received
- We suspect any fraudulent activity
Every time you order a product from the Shop, the terms in force at the time of your order will apply to the contract between you and us. We may make changes to these terms from time to time in order to reflect changes in relevant law and regulatory requirements. We will make available a copy of the updated terms on our website at all times and where you have provided an email address, we will notify you of any material changes.Back to top
We are under a legal duty to supply products that are in conformity with this contract.
The images of the products on our website are for illustrative purposes only. Although we make every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that a device's display of the colours accurately reflects the colour of the products. Your product may vary slightly from those images.
Personalised items which have a preview function may not appear precisely as in the preview. The preview function is to give a rough estimation of its appearance. The message on the item will be as displayed, but due to the nature of the preview function, the item may not appear exactly as previewed.
Unless expressly indicated otherwise, Macmillan is not the manufacturer of the products sold on this website. While we work to ensure that the product information on our website is correct, actual product packaging and materials may contain more information to that displayed on our website. We recommend that you do not rely solely on the information presented on our website. Please always read labels, warnings and directions provided with the product before use.Back to top
The prices of the products will be quoted on our site at the time you submit your order and payment will be taken at this stage.
Prices for our products may change from time to time, but any change in price will not affect any order we have already accepted.
The price of a product does not include delivery charges. Our delivery charges are as advised to you during the check-out process, before you confirm your order. To check relevant delivery charges, please refer to the delivery and returns information on the individual product page and the main delivery & returns procedure below.
We take all reasonable care to ensure that the prices of products are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the system. If there has been a pricing error, we will inform you by email prior to fulfilling your order and will offer the option of a full refund, pay you the difference if you have paid too much, or the option to pay the difference and complete the order if you have paid too little.
Value Added Tax (VAT)
Where VAT is chargeable on a product, the price displayed will be inclusive of VAT.
If you believe you are eligible for VAT relief, please complete the customer declaration section of this form: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/vat-reliefs-for-disabled-people-eligibility-declaration-by-a-disabled-person and return it to email@example.com We reserve the right to refuse the request if we are advised, or have reason to believe, that VAT relief is not applicable.
The costs for delivery will be as displayed to you on the Shop site.
We aim to get your goods to you within 7 days of receiving your order, and in any event within 30 days after the day on which we accept your order. Personalised merchandise is shipped directly from the supplier (currently Personalised Merchandise Company) and may take up to 28 days to reach you.
If our supply of the products is delayed by an event outside our control then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if the goods have not been delivered within 30 days of the contract, you may contact us to set a new delivery time or to end the contract and receive a refund for any products you have paid for but not received.
The product will be your responsibility from the time we deliver the product to the address you have provided. You will own the products once we have received payment in full, including all applicable delivery charges and have sent an order confirmation email.
Right to cancel
If you are a consumer ("consumer" means you are acting for purposes which are wholly or mainly outside your trade, business, craft or profession), you have a legal right to cancel a contract during the period set out below. This means that during the relevant period if you change your mind or decide for any other reason that you do not want to receive or keep a product, you can return the product and receive a refund (excluding delivery fees).
This cancellation right does not apply in the case of:
- any products that are made to your specifications or that have been clearly personalised; or
- any products that have become unsealed following delivery or are unsuitable for return due to health or hygiene reasons.
Your right to cancel will expire 30 days after the day on which you (or the person you nominate) received the goods (or received the final item from an order for several items).
To exercise your right to cancel you must return the items according to the instructions on the return slip or as advised by us – see below. You may also inform us in a clear statement sent by post or email to the address below.
How to return your items
If a return slip is included with your package, you must follow the directions stated on the return slip. If there is no return slip, or if you have any questions about returns please contact us on the details below to arrange your return.
Tel: 0203 640 7550
You must send back the goods without undue delay. In any event the goods must be received by us no later than 30 days from the day on which you received (or were deemed to receive) the product. You are deemed to have received the product 5 working days (excluding weekends and bank holidays) after we post it to you if it is not received sooner. The deadline is met if we receive the goods before the period of 30 days has expired.
Refunds for returned items
If you cancel this contract, we will refund all payments received from you, except the cost of delivery which is non-refundable. Where possible, we may include a free returns label but we are not obliged to do so.
Where permitted to do so, we will reduce your refund to reflect any reduction for the loss in the value of the goods which has resulted from your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop, including situations where the handling has gone beyond what is necessary to establish the nature and identity of the product.
Where the items are part of a multi-item deal (for example 3 items for the price of 2), you must return all items to receive a full refund. If you return only some of the items, you will be charged in full for the item(s) you retain and you will be refunded the difference.
We will make refunds as soon as possible, and no later than 14 days from the day we have received the returned goods.
We will make the refund using the same means of payment that you used for the initial purchase unless you have expressly agreed otherwise. You will not incur any fees as a result of the refund.

If there is a fault in the product(s) you have ordered, you may be entitled to a refund or replacement. The expiry dates of these rights are set out below.
Within 30 days
If your item is faulty or does not meet the statutory rights, you have the right to a full refund, providing you let us know within 30 days from the delivery of your products.
Within six months
If your item is faulty or does not meet the statutory rights, you will have the right to a repair or replacement (unless fault is caused by your use of the products) if you let us know within six months of the delivery of your products.
