A BIG THANK YOU
A BIG thank you to everyone for your donations and support in 2014, because of your generosity throughout the year we were able to raise nearly £4,000 for Maggies Centres (£3780.78 to be exact) and qualified in the top 1% of fundraisers through JustGiving.
This would not be possible without your continued support, so we just want to extend our thanks and have reassurance in knowing the value in every donation to help support people affected by cancer.
A FEW STATS FROM MAGGIES
Today there are two million people living with or after cancer in the UK and this figure is steadily rising with over 300,000 new diagnoses each year. These people can face tough questions, exhausting treatment and difficult emotions that can range from anxiety to loneliness and isolation. These challenges affect not only those with cancer, but their family and friends too. Maggies Centres provide practical, emotional and social support to compliment the excellent medical treatment that the NHS provides. They are a warm and welcoming refuge from the stress of the hospital; visitors can talk to the professional experts on hand about information and advice, or they can sit in conversation with other people who understand what they’re going through, or they can simple find a quiet space to reflect.
YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT
Fundraising for Maggies has become an annual (and multi-event) occurrence for Architainment and the team will of course be completing a number of challenges again this year to continue to raise money for this incredible cause, so continue to keep your eyes peeled as we announce what events we will be taking apart in during 2015.
