Maggie’s runs a network of cancer caring centres throughout the UK which offer high quality, evidence-based psychological, emotional and information support to people diagnosed with cancer and their families.
Built in the grounds of specialist NHS cancer hospitals, Maggie’s Centres are warm and welcoming places, with qualified professionals on hand to offer a programme of support that has been shown to improve physical and emotional wellbeing.
The first Maggie’s Centre opened in Edinburgh in 1996 and there are now 20 Centres across the UK and abroad, with more planned for the future. Maggie’s works with great architects like the late Zaha Hadid, Richard Rogers and Norman Foster, whose expertise and experience deliver the calm, uplifting environments that are so important to the people who visit and work in the Centres.
Maggie’s relies on voluntary donations to support and grow its network of Centres and to develop its unique, high quality programme of support. The charity’s aim is to make the biggest difference possible to people living with cancer and their family and friends.
Brodies is proud to support Maggie’s and we would ask you to give anything you can to help Maggie’s continue the work it does for people diagnosed with cancer and their families.
Cancer Research UK is the world’s leading charity dedicated to beating cancer through research. They are fighting cancer on all fronts, finding new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat it to save more lives.
Their vision is to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured. In the 1970s, less than a quarter of people with cancer survived. But over the last 40 years, survival has doubled – today half will survive. Their ambition is to accelerate progress and see three-quarters of people surviving the disease within the next 20 years.
Cancer Research UK’s work is entirely funded by the public so their life-saving work is only possible due to donations. Every step they make towards beating cancer relies on every pound donated.
Gleneagles is proud to support Cancer Research UK’s life-saving work into preventing, diagnosing and treating cancer and we would ask you to dig deep to help it continue its good work.
