There was plenty of cake to go around when a cancer charity put on a birthday bash to remember.
Maggie’s Oxford was opened in 2014 and since then more than 42,000 people with cancer and their families and friends have used their services.
The charity, which provides free practical and emotional support for people living with cancer, welcomed friends and supporters of Maggie’s for a third birthday party at its Churchill Hospital base.
Supporters were able to enjoy an evening of celebration while recognising all of those who have helped the charity so far.
The centre’s head, Claire Marriott, said: “The local community around us have truly made the centre their own and I am delighted we have been here to offer a warm Maggie’s welcome to men and women of all ages living with cancer.
“Every year our Maggie’s community develops and grows, but as always the kitchen table and our evidence based programme of support is at the heart of all that happens here.”
Maggie’s offers a range of support, including one-to-one or group sessions with a clinical psychologist, stress reduction, relaxation workshops, art therapy and creative writing courses.
More practical support includes advice about benefits and healthy eating.
Maggie’s relies on voluntary donations to support and grow its network of centres and to provide support.
