Try for Maggie's

This September, teams from across our offices and sites will take on a new fundraising challenge, Try for Maggie’s.

Good luck to our Sir Robert McAlpine fundraising teams, who are taking on a new challenge, Try for Maggie’s between 8th September - 6th October. 

Aligning with the Rugby World Cup, Try for Maggie’s will challenge squads of up to 15 members, to log a total of 2163 miles during the four-week period (that works out at approximately 144 miles per team member). Each team’s aim is to virtually travel the distance from the Murrayfield Stadium in Edinburgh to Stade de Nice in France and back home to Twickenham Stadium in London, a total of approximately 2163 miles.

Sir Robert McAlpine has been in partnership with Maggie's since 2016, and in that time, we have raised over £1m!

All the funds raised from Try for Maggie’s will mean that people with cancer receive support by expert staff, whether it's help for a friend, family member or carer, benefits advice, psychological support, or just a quiet place with a garden to enjoy.

  • £22 could pay for one visit to a Maggie's centre, so someone with cancer can get expert psychological, practical, and financial support for free

  • £37 could pay for one session with a Benefits Advisor, so someone with cancer can get critical financial advice and support

  • £100 could pay for one support group led by a Cancer Support Specialist so that people with cancer can meet and talk to others who are in a similar situation

Please support our team members and donate today if you are able to do so. Thank you.
