OUR CHARITY PARTNERS
Seats in our cinema will be free, but we'll be asking you to consider donating towards our chosen charity - this quarter’s partners are “Maggie’s” - a cancer care centre in the grounds of the Freeman Hospital that offer emotional, social and practical support for everyone affected by cancer.
Maggie’s provides free practical, emotional and social support to people with cancer and their family and friends, following the ideas about cancer care originally laid out by Maggie Keswick Jencks.
Built in the grounds of NHS cancer hospitals, Maggie’s Centres are places with professional staff on hand to offer the support people need.
Our Centres are places to find practical advice about benefits and eating well; places where qualified experts provide emotional support; places to meet other people; places where you can simply sit quietly with a cup of tea.
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 abroad. Maggie's also has an Online Centre.
