Future Inn Cardiff is proud to help raise awareness for Maggie's and support their fundraising efforts
Maggie’s provides free practical, emotional and social support to people with cancer and their family and friends, following the ideas about cancer care originally laid out by Maggie Keswick Jencks.
Built in the grounds of NHS cancer hospitals, Maggie’s Centres are places with professional staff on hand to offer the support people need. The centres are places to find practical advice about benefits and eating well; places where qualified experts provide emotional support; places to meet other people; places where you can simply sit quietly with a cup of tea. They also provide practical support for family and friends.
The Maggie's Centre in Cardiff is based Velindre Cancer Centre in Whitchurch and is open Monday to Friday between 9am-5pm. You do not need to make an appointment as it is a drop in service. All the support is free. The centre opened in May 2019 and is expected to receive 20,000 visitors a year.
Throughout the year we hold fundraisers with donations being given directly to the Maggie's. These include our annual staff bake sale at Halloween where you can try some truly scary delights, the annual Elf Day at Christmas where staff will dress as Santa's helpers for the day and other events such as World Cancer Day.
