Apple is helping a UK cancer relief charity by donating £50 for every iMac ordered from the Apple Store.

The money goes to Macmillan Cancer Relief, a registered charity that provides care and support for cancer patients and their families throughout the UK.

The charity funds specialist Macmillan nurses and doctors, buildings for cancer treatment and care and grants for patients in financial difficulties.

The Apple/Macmillan charity scheme started on August 10 and runs until October 1 1999. The Apple Store iMac starts at £779.
