The genius of Maggie’s Centres are that they offer support to anyone affected by cancer – whether you’re the one suffering or not – perhaps you’re supporting a loved one or friend. The 21 Centres across the UK welcome visitors in specially designed premises in hospital grounds staffed by Cancer Support Specialists, Benefits Advisors, Nutritionists, therapists and Psychologists. The spaces themselves are lovely – for example the Maggie’s Centre in the shadow of the monstrous Charing Cross (left) is a light and welcoming safe haven. Best of all the support is completely free.
Maggie’s Culture Crawl is a night time fundraising walk to raise money for Maggie’s Centres across the UK. There are currently 3 Maggie’s Centres in London; West London, Barts and Royal Free with Royal Marsden currently in the planning stages. The Culture Crawl is a 10 mile night time walk through London starting at 6:30pm at The Design Museum. Along the route walkers will have exclusive access to cultural venues including the Tate Britain and Tate Modern and finishing at Maggie’s Barts. Walkers will be able to experience a year’s worth of culture in one night, with exclusive access after-hours access to the museums exhibitions, and entertainment and food along the route.
Tickets to join the event cost £40. Get an exclusive discount using code: Littlebird5
