We are very excited to announce that our new charity for 2019/2020 will be Maggie’s Centre Oldham! Maggie’s Oldham opened in June 2017, thanks to the donation of Sir Norman Stoller and the Stoller Charitable Trust, and now helps to provide practical and emotional support to people with cancer and their family and friends.
Following the ideas about cancer care laid out by their founder Maggie Keswick Jenck, Maggie’s acts as a warm, welcoming and open space which offers information, stress-reducing strategies and the opportunity to meet other people in similar circumstances. We chose Maggie’s as our charity of the year as it has always been extremely important to us to be involved in our local community, and many employees at UP have been personally touched by the effects of cancer. We feel that collaborating with Maggie’s will be a very meaningful partnership for us and a wonderful cause to support in the coming year.
