Christmas and New Year break

Hello everyone,

With Christmas almost here, the Maggie's Online centre team are about to pack up the laptops till the New Year.

The seasonal break can feel a 'limbo' land, in a way, as many hospitals and doctor's services run a reduced service. Robyn's 'Christmas - be prepared' blog, is a handy read, with useful tips about managing during the holiday period. 'Coping with special occasions' by Cancer Research UK, is also helpful.

We finish online at 5pm this evening (24th Dec) and we're back on Thursday, 3rd January, 2019.

May we wish you a restful Christmas and New Year, and see you online in 2019.

Warm wishes


(If you're struggling emotionally during the festive season, it may feel that there is no-one to talk to. The Samaritans offer a 24/7 telephone support service, a 'listening ear' if things are feeling too much at any time)
