Fundraising for Maggie’s Cancer Charity with City A.M

City A. M’s Money Maker Award Helps Create Awareness About Important Cause

We are honoured to have been nominated for City A.M’s Maggie’s Money Maker Award for our fundraising for Maggie’s Charity this year. This nomination helps create awareness about this important cause, and thereby increases the potential of helping even more people affected by cancer.

Charity of the Year is Maggie’s Barts Maggie’s Bart’s is Regeneris’ charity of the year. Maggie’s Centres provide free practical, emotional and social support to people with cancer and their family and friends. Their centres across The UK provide practical advice, emotional support and places to relax and meet other people in similar circumstances. The money raised by the Regeneris team this year will go towards supporting the opening of two new Maggie’s Centres (at the Christie Hospital in Manchester and St. Bart’s Hospital in London)

 

Running, Cycling, Raffling and Baking for Maggie’s

Throughout 2016 we have planned and held some great events to raise money, including a raffle, a bake sale, running and bike races. We are looking forward to continuing our fundraising efforts at our 10-year anniversary in November.

Our next fund raising event is this weekend, when a team of 11 walkers from Regeneris will be attempting the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge. This is a 24-mile hike and includes over 1,500 metres of accent! The team will be trying to complete the walk in under 12 hours.

The Team Effort Has Secured more than £2,185 So Far
