Miles for Maggie's challenge raises £9k

Congratulations to our colleagues across the UK for completing the virtual fundraising challenge, Miles for Maggie’s.

During 29th March – 29th April, our colleagues across the UK have been working in teams to log virtual miles whilst fundraising for Maggie’s, a charity that supports those and their families affected by cancer.

Last month, we challenged our people with a mission: to team up with colleagues and walk, run and/or cycle the equivalent of the 437 miles between Maggie's Edinburgh and Maggie's at the Royal Marsden in London.

Fast forward 30 something days, many miles and only a few blister patches later… they’ve gone and smashed it!  Congratulations to all those involved in logging miles and, of course, to everyone who has donated to help support the work of Maggie’s.

Collectively, we managed to rack up an incredible 11,750 miles. That’s the equivalent of travelling from London to Auckland, New Zealand!

But, most importantly, you have raised more than £9,400, money which will make a huge difference to the lives of people with cancer and their families – by enabling Maggie’s to offer vital practical and emotional support at a time when it has never been more needed.

About Maggie’s

Maggie’s help people take back control when cancer turns life upside down, with professional support for anything from treatment side effects to money worries.

All their support is free and you don't need an appointment or referral – just visit one of their centres.

The money raised is used to make the biggest possible difference to the people living with cancer, who need support now more than ever. Maggie’s teams of specialists support people by phone, video call and online. Find out more about Maggie’s via their website >>
