Pop in ... the kettle’s on!

A warm welcome from Maggie's
A warm welcome from Maggie's

our Maggie’s Centre is looking forward to welcoming lots more people through its doors.

From next week the centre is starting up new open sessions, called Maggie’s Welcome Experiences, and they are available to everyone.

They will run from 4.00 p.m. to 5.00 p.m. every Thursday, and no appointment is necessary.

Anyone interested in Maggie’s, whether they or a loved one have cancer, or who is interested in supporting Maggie’s in any way, can simply drop-in to witness a typical Maggie’s welcome, have a look around the unique building and speak to the friendly fundraising and support team.

Excited

It is also an opportunity to hear first hand, from inspirational centre users, how Maggie’s has helped give them the clarity they need to begin to make a diagnosis of cancer more manageable, within a community of people who have been through, or are going though the same thing.

Tu Edwards, Maggie’s Fife Community Fundraiser, said: “Everyone at Maggie’s is incredibly excited about our new Maggie’s Welcome Experience.

“We are aware that it can sometimes be difficult for people to fully appreciate what a Maggie’s Centre is like until it has been experienced first hand.

“Now anyone can simply pop in during our welcome events to get a sense of Maggie’s special atmosphere and to gain an understanding of what a Maggie’s welcome is all about.”

Anyone interested in coming along to visit our fantastic Centre at Victoria Hospital can just pop in at on the allocated time and we will have the kettle on ready to welcome you.

As always in Maggie’s teas, coffees and refreshments will be available.
