Why your fundraising matters

When cancer turns life upside down, Maggie’s is here. All our expert support is free to anyone with cancer and their family and friends.

By joining us on the London Night Hike, you are helping us to ensure people with cancer get the support they need.

£150 can pay for one of our Getting Started sessions for up to 10 centre visitors, helping to support with thoughts, emotions and worries before, during and after any cancer treatment.

£250 could help pay for a six-week bereavement course, led by our psychologists to support our centre visitors to dealing with loss; helping to find a way to start moving forward.
