Across the UK and abroad, the 22 Maggie’s Centres provide free practical, emotional, and social support to those affected by cancer, complementing services the NHS provides.
In honour of Maggie’s, on Friday 29th March JPES opened our doors for a bake sale, open to everyone to attend. We’re very pleased to say that we raised £266.27 with a variety of cakes, including a classic Victoria sponge cake, our very own bunny-shaped Pavlova, and a vegan pear cake. The money will go towards a variety of support services including workshops on nutrition and how to manage stress, providing bereavement support, benefits advisors, and exercise classes.
We’re so proud to be supporting such a wonderful charity, and we had some really moving conversations with people who have used Maggie’s for support in the past. We’re really looking forward to running our next event, and thank you to everyone who stopped by this one!
