"We are thrilled to be supporting Maggie's in Cheltenham as our charity of the year for 2019. Maggie's has supported friends and family members of our team so this will be a fantastic way for us to give something back and help fundraise for the centre."
The legal firm kicked off the new partnership by showing their support on World Cancer Day at an event held at Maggie’s centre in Cheltenham, where you can meet the team, find out more about what they do and take part in relaxation classes across the day.
Kate Allen, Marketing Co-ordinator at DF Legal, says: “We are thrilled to be supporting Maggie’s in Cheltenham as our charity of the year for 2019. Maggie’s has supported friends and family members of our team so this will be a fantastic way for us to give something back and help fundraise for the centre. We will be working closely with them for the next twelve months and hopefully raise as much money and awareness as possible.”
Maggie’s offers free practical, emotional and social support to people with cancer and their friends and family throughout the region and surrounding areas. The centre can also provide direct support in the workplace for businesses whose employees are dealing with cancer.
Anna Mason, Fundraising Manager from Maggie’s Centre in Cheltenham, said: “We are delighted to be supported by DF Legal as their charity this year. Maggie’s relies on fundraising, donations and gifts in wills to support people living with cancer and their family and friends, with qualified professionals on hand to offer an evidence-based core programme of support that has been shown to improve physical and emotional wellbeing. We are really looking forward to working together on some exciting fundraising ideas throughout the year.”
For the past twelve months DF Legal has supported St Michael’s Hospice in Hereford with numerous fundraising events and activities, including a Paint Run, 10k Midnight Walk and a Reverse Advent Calendar.
