Stockport based Assured Events have once again provided the Christmas Tree for Maggie’s, the award winning cancer support centre, set in the grounds of the Christie Hospital.
The centre opened last year and offers practical, emotional and social support for anyone touched by cancer whether a patent or their friends and family and regardless of whether they are local or visiting the area. It’s a drop-in centre as opposed to a clinical centre, but that doesn’t go near doing it any justice!
“We provided the tree last year and wanted to do the same this year”, says Karl Perry, MD of Assured Events.
“It’s such an inspirational place: the building, the people and the warmth of the atmosphere make for a very human experience. You walk in and immediately feel that it is a very special place. As a charity, funds are always limited and there’s always competition for what they should be spent on. It would be easy to justify not having a tree at Christmas but we feel that the people that visit and volunteer here deserve it – you should never underestimate the pleasure that people can get from a well-dressed Christmas tree!”
Assured Events will be working with Maggie’s in the New Year to further support this amazing place and set of people.
