Maggie’s Cancer Care
What does your business do?
My business is Maggie’s Cancer Care, it provides emotional and practical support to anyone affected by a cancer diagnosis. Set in the grounds of major hospitals we receive over 18,000 visits annually to our Edinburgh centre. Maggie’s is for anyone at any point during their cancer diagnosis, it’s uplifting and invaluable to the community it serves.
What is a typical working day for you/what does it look like?
As a proud Centre Fundraiser for Maggie’s Edinburgh, my main role is to support our lovely volunteers and fundraisers to maximise their fundraising potential and help them to get the best out of their events. Every day is different, which is one of the most satisfying elements of my role. The most rewarding part for me is seeing people get such satisfaction from helping others. It really is wonderful to be a part of.
What do you use Len Lothian for?
Maggie’s centres are beautiful buildings that are designed to be uplifting and calming, this means that there is no place for clutter, we use Len Lothian to store items of furniture and event prizes for upcoming events. It’s a fantastic service that we receive and we are very grateful for Len Lothian’s support.
What’s your top tip in Business?
My top tip in business would be passion and having a belief in what you are doing day to day. Working with such a brilliant organisation like Maggie’s means it’s not difficult to keep these two things at the forefront of your mind.
