Bastows have a fine tradition of supporting various charities through others doing great things- and so now we have decided to get active and be the fundraisers! We have chosen Maggie's Centres as our charity and are looking forward to completing their legendary London Night Hike on Friday 21st September.
Eleven of us are hiking: CEO Frank, Site Managers Elvis and Almir and their wives Mihaela and Sandra, Sales Director Dave, Cultural Director Niki and her partner Steve, Financial Controller Andy and his wife Ieva, Contracts Director Nimesh. We are aiming to raise £3135.00 for Maggie's and are at an amazing 73% of our total, with three weeks to go.
Maggie’s Centres are for anyone affected by cancer.
They are places where people are welcome at any stage in their journey –
from just being diagnosed, or undergoing treatment, to post-treatment,
recurrence, end of life or in bereavement.
Maggie's is about empowering people to live with, through and beyond
cancer by bringing together professional help, communities of support
and building design to create exceptional centres for cancer care.
They welcome family and friends, too, knowing that those who love and
look after someone with cancer can feel just as frightened, vulnerable
and uncertain- and all their support is free of charge.
