Maggie's Oldham  Maggie's Oldham provides free practical, emotional and social support to people with cancer and their families and friends.

At the heart of every Maggie's Centre is our kitchen table.

Why not follow in Diane’s footsteps and host your own Kitchen Table Day event for Maggie’s on Friday 27th April?! "I attended a fantastic Kitchen Table Day event last year, which inspired me to challenge myself this year to host my own curry night as I'm absolutely rubbish at cooking!

My friends are holding their own Kitchen Table Day event during the day, they’ve promised me lots of delicious cake(!), and then we will meet at mine in the evening for some curry! It's a great way to meet friends and socialise.

Many of my friends have gone through cancer themselves and have found the support offered at Maggie's so valuable. The statistics are scary, so many people are affected. But Kitchen Table Day is an amazing way to give something back." Let's gather together and raise money for people with cancer. From dinner parties and games nights, to coffee mornings and bake sales, the choice is yours!

Our #FridayFundraiser shout out this week has to go to our truly incredible Volunteer Fundraising Group! Through sheer passion, enthusiasm, generosity of their time and the gift of the gab(!) they raised an epic £16,444 for Maggie's last year! WOW!
From us all at Maggie's, THANK YOU! Your support is so important and dear to us and we are very lucky to have you all as Maggie's ambassadors. Every penny raised will help to keep our doors open for all those who need our support.
Let's hear what Deb Howarth, the groups Chairperson, had to say: "I'm so proud to be part of the Maggie's Oldham Fundraising Group, we all are. We're so pleased with achieving such an amazing amount of money raised in our first year!
Huge thanks go to everyone who has supported us in any way- be it donating items, coming along to one of our events or buying a ticket for one of our raffles.
Every penny really does count for the families and patients attending Maggie's Oldham for support.
We've got lots planned for 2018... Watch this space!"

It might be cold outside but the log burner is roaring and it's lovely and cosy here at Maggie's. Fancy a warm? Just come in 🔥 #toasty #cosy #homely #warm #relaxing

***2-4-1 on all Culture Crawl entries if you sign up before 11.59pm on Monday 18th Sept*** - Please share! --- Sign up today and help us to support more families like Ste, Laura and Joseph. --- “3 months ago, my wife Laura and I received the most depressing of news just two days after returning from a wonderful holiday.
Laura's Breast Cancer diagnosis was not an easy thing to come to terms with, and indeed the next 4 weeks were spent trying to understand this news while being on a whirlwind of a "rollercoaster" ride attending a dozen or more hospital appointments for a multitude of scans - each one another stressful event, as simple looks of concern or worry were just more opportunities for us to fret or convince ourselves of even worse news to come.

At this time as we cried on each others shoulders, we had the support of our families, but we also managed to find support at Maggie's.
My own story follows wandering into Maggie's on the Royal Oldham site as I awaited Laura during yet another scan. Bernie (Maggie's Centre Head) didn't probe, didn't intrude, but on this day, I think she just saw I was lost (in more ways than one) and offered me a brew, sat me down and then listened as I opened up.
I've signed up for Culture Crawl as I’m hoping to raise much needed funds to help Maggie's continue this good work.” ---
