Hughes Paddison adopt Maggie's Cancer Centre
Cheltenham based Solicitors Hughes Paddison have adopted the Cheltenham Centre of the cancer charity Maggie’s as their Charity of the Year for 2016-17. Hughes Paddison have also set themselves a target of raising £2,500 for the charity through a range of fund raising activities.
Maggie’s provides free practical, emotional and social support to people with cancer and their family and friends. Maggie’s Centres are places with professional staff on hand to offer the support people need: practical advice about benefits and eating well; places where qualified experts provide emotional support; places to meet other people; places where you can simply sit quietly with a cup of tea. The Cheltenham Centre in College Baths Road is one of 17 in the UK.
Jane Fide, Maggie’s Cheltenham Centre Head: “We are delighted that Hughes Paddison have chosen Maggie’s Cheltenham as their charity partner. We are looking forward to supporting and cheering them on through their amazing challenges, including the Cheltenham Half Marathon and a Coast to Coast cycle ride. This will raise such important funds and awareness to support many people affected by cancer in our local community. A huge thank you to all at Hughes Paddison”.
Andrew Turner, a Director with Hughes Paddison added: “Whilst we work for clients from all over the country, Cheltenham and Gloucestershire are both our base and our heartland. It seemed only logical to adopt a local cause and we were massively impressed by the work that the Maggies Centre does. We have supported a wide range of local causes in a variety of ways over the years, but we felt the time was right to focus our efforts on one cause. We are looking forward to working with Maggies and raising as much money for them as we can”.
