The big countdown is on for our Maggie’s Centre’s landmark 10th birthday next week.

The cancer caring centre, which opened its doors on November 3 2006, will celebrate with a Hollywood themed birthday bash.

The big birthday party will be held from 2-5pm on November 3 at Maggie’s in the grounds of the Victoria Hospital, Kirkcaldy.

Dressing up on a Hollywood glamour theme is encouraged among visitors to the centre, and there will be a prize for the best dressed.

The party is a chance to bring together the charity’s many supporters and visitors who have been part of Maggie’s story over the last decade.

There is an open invitation for people to join the staff and volunteer helpers for an afternoon of tea, cake, raffle, tombola, the Made for Maggie’s stall, a wheel of fortune game and lots of fun and laughter.

There will also be a chance to meet a special guest who will be visiting on the day... ‘Oor Rabbie!

The sculture, based on Oor Wullie, will be at the centre for the birthday bash as part of its Bucket Trail of Fife.

‘Oor Rabbie’ the Bard and the Bucket’ was designed by Susan McGill Designs of Kirkcaldy.

It was bought at a major funsdraising auction by Briggs Marine in Burntisland.

Rabbie/Wullie will help Maggie’s Fife to celebrate its birthday on November 3, and he will be stopping by for a week.

Anyone who would like to bake or donate any prizes for the special birthday raffle is invited to get in touch with Louise Duncan on (01592) 643355 ext 28868.

The tenth anniversary celebrations continue with a major fundraising dinner and dance later this month.

A team or organisers has been busy putting toghether the five-star night at Rothes Halls on Friday, November 18.

The glittering event, sponsored by Smith Anderson will feature entertainment by ‘That Swing Sensation’ – and promises to be a night to celebrate all that Maggie’s Fife has achieved.

Tickets are now on sale, priced £70 each, with tables of 10 available.
