Maggie’s is a growing network of cancer caring centres around the UK that provide emotional and psychological support, benefits advice and a range of workshops such as tai chi, meditation and expressive writing to anyone affected by cancer. You can see a video here showing Angus speaking about his experience of Maggie’s.
All our services are free and our centres are run almost entirely on donations. Some funds are raised through events like our night hike.
