Gloucestershire Echo - - BUSINESS -

» COUNTY law firm DF Le­gal LLP have an­nounced they will be sup­port­ing Mag­gie’s Cen­tre in Chel­tenham as their char­ity of the year for the next 12 months.

Mar­ket­ing co-or­di­na­tor Kate Allen said: “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 12 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 pro­vide di­rect sup­port in the work­place for busi­nesses whose em­ploy­ees are deal­ing with can­cer.

Mag­gie’s Cen­tre fundrais­ing man­ager Anna Ma­son said: “Mag­gie’s re­lies on fundrais­ing, do­na­tions and gifts in wills to sup­port peo­ple liv­ing with can­cer and their fam­ily and friends.

“Qual­i­fied pro­fes­sion­als are on hand to of­fer an ev­i­dence-based core pro­gramme of sup­port that has been shown to im­prove well­be­ing.

“We are re­ally look­ing for­ward to work­ing to­gether on some ex­cit­ing fundrais­ing ideas through­out the year.”
