Maggie’s, the charity which provides free practical, emotional and social support for people with cancer and their family and friends, is delighted to invite you to cover one of their biggest fundraising events of the year in the Maggie’s Newcastle Culture Crawl.
Part night-walk, part cultural adventure Maggie’s Culture Crawl Newcastle is inspired by the architectural design and programme of support so integral to Maggie’s, as walkers get the chance to explore Newcastle discovering cultural, architectural and artistic delights along the way.
The event will take in eight miles of the city including the Victoria Tunnel, Newcastle Quayside, and the beautiful parks through Jesmond Dene, all whilst raising as much money as possible for Maggie’s Newcastle to continue to support people with cancer and their family and friends.
Kelly Knighting-Wykes, Centre Fundraising Manager at Maggie’s Newcastle said: “After 10 years of spectacular events in London it’s wonderful to have a Maggie’s Culture Crawl taking place right here, taking in the sights and cultural gems of Newcastle. As a charity Maggie’s Newcastle relies on donations to continue to develop our unique, high quality programme of support. I really hope the local community gets behind the event to help us support as many people affected by cancer, as well as their family and friends, across the region.”
Built in the grounds of the Freeman Hospital Maggie’s Newcastle is a warm and welcoming place, with qualified professionals on hand to offer an evidence-based core programme of support that has been shown to improve physical and emotional wellbeing.
Maggie’s Newcastle has been providing support for people with cancer and their family and friends, across the North East and Cumbria for two years. The Centre, designed by Ted Cullinan was opened in May 2013 by Patron Sarah Brown.
