Maggie's Yorkshire

Built in the grounds of NHS cancer hospitals, Maggie’s Centres are places with professional staff on hand to provide free practical, emotional and social support to people with cancer and to their families and friends.  The first Maggie’s Centre opened in Edinburgh in 1996 and since then Maggie’s has continued to grow, with 20 Centres at major NHS cancer hospitals in the UK and abroad and further expansion underway. 

Based within the grounds of St James’s University Hospital, Leeds, the latest addition is under construction and due to open before the end of this year.  The site has been given to Maggie's by the hospital and the centre is being built thanks to donations and the proceeds of numerous fundraising activities. 

Maggie's is a charity entirely funded by the kindness of donations with the centres being built and run on the same basis so, at Multipanel UK, we were especially pleased to be able to offer our support towards such an amazing project.  In conjunction with Pyramid Display Materials and Simple Displays, our panels have been used for the site hoarding to provide an attractive backdrop to the site whilst communicating information about the project and the invaluable services the centre will provide.  Maggie’s were extremely pleased with the hoarding, describing the result as “…… fantastic! So colourful and vibrant and just beautiful!”
