Maggie’s, the charity which provides free practical, emotional and social support for people with cancer and their family and friends, have announced that following 10 successful years in London, their big fundraising event, Maggie’s Culture Crawl, is coming to Nottingham – and West Bridgford will be involved.
Part night-walk, part cultural adventure, Maggie’s Culture Crawl Nottingham is inspired by the architectural design and programme of support so integral to Maggie’s, as walkers get the chance to explore Nottingham discovering cultural, architectural and artistic delights along the way.
The event is taking place at 6pm Friday 4th September from Maggie’s Centre, City Hospital and will take in nine miles of the city, including the New Art Exchange, Nottingham Castle, Trent Bridge Cricket Ground and the Council House.
As this is all happening they will be raising as much money as possible for Maggie’s Nottingham to continue to support people with cancer and their family and friends.
Kate Martin, centre head of Maggie’s Nottingham, said: “After 10 years of spectacular events in London, it’s wonderful to have a Maggie’s Culture Crawl taking place right here, taking in the sights and cultural gems of Nottingham.
“As a charity, Maggie’s Nottingham relies on donations to continue to develop our unique, high-quality programme of support.
“I really hope the local community gets behind the event to help us support as many people affected by cancer, as well as their family and friends, across the East Midlands.”
Registration for the event is £25 and participants are asked to raise a minimum of £100. A fundraising pack full of ideas to make sure each walker reaches their target will be available from the Maggie’s Centre or online.
Built in the grounds of the City Hospital, Maggie’s Nottingham is a warm and welcoming place, with qualified professionals on hand to offer an evidence-based core programme of support that has been shown to improve physical and emotional wellbeing.
Maggie’s Nottingham has been providing support for people with cancer and their family and friends, across the East Midlands for three years. The centre, which was designed by Piers Gough, was opened in 2011 by Sir Paul Smith.
