Maggie's London birthday 29th April

For many of you Maggie’s Online Centre is your first contact with Maggie’s and you ask  the online team or other centre visitors what our centres are like and what happens when you visit...

Those of you who have visited will often tell us how difficult that first step through the door was – but that you are very glad you made it!

Of course our centres are open during the week  and you are very welcome just to drop in (as you are to Maggie’s Online centre too!) those of you near our london centre may be interested to know  for the centre's 5th birthday celebrations there is a day of celebration on Monday 29th April and you can drop in and experience some taster sessions (11.00 -4.30) of what Maggie’s has to offer.

 Health care professionals, friends and family  are welcome too – come and talk to the centre team and find out more about Maggie’s.  We are very proud of our centres  and what happens inside and love the opportunity to  talk about them and to show you Maggie’s at work.

 There is too much going on to list here – taster sessions with our experts.....  benefits advisors, relaxation sessions,  massages, some artwork, planting summer bulbs, tai chi, nutrition, makeovers, the centre choir will be  singing and did I mention the Maggie’s bake off? Janet Ellis will be popping in   and there will of course be the opportunity to talk to the cancer support specialists and, if the weather is kind, to enjoy the beautiful garden.

I will also be there for some of the afternoon so if any online centre members are there please come and introduce yourselves it would be lovely to meet you.

Best wishes

Robyn
