A spokesperson for Maggie's said, "Thank you so much for choosing to support Maggie's as part of your Awards evening. The incredible amount raised will make a huge difference to people here at Maggie's.
"As you know without your support and commitment we wouldn't be able to deliver life-changing services to people effected by cancer. Thank you for making a difference."
All Maggie’s Centres are based in the grounds of NHS cancer hospitals, providing free practical, emotional and social support to people with cancer and their family and friends. This support is delivered by professional teams, in homely, calming environments, following the original suggestions of the charity’s founder, Maggie Keswick Jencks.
The first Maggie’s Centre opened in Edinburgh in 1996 and since then Maggie’s has continued to grow, with 20 Centres at major NHS cancer hospitals in the UK and others abroad. Maggie's also has an Online Centre which supports people regardless of their location. Many more Centres are in the planning with the aim being to have 30 Centres in the near future.
Maggie’s receives no government funding, and therefore relies on voluntary income to continue being there for people affected by cancer.
