We are delighted to announce that our partner Ellie’s Friends has merged with Maggie’s Centres to provide the best possible support to adults living with cancer in the UK.
Maggie’s Centres provide free practical and emotional support to people with cancer and their family and friends. Built on the grounds of NHS cancer hospitals, Maggie’s Centres are places with professional staff on hand to offer the support people need.
What this means for their users and supporters is that Ellie’s Friends website will continue to function as usual into 2018 until they can fully integrate their services with Maggie’s friends. They will continue to communicate any changes and they are delighted that they will be reaching more adults in need of support.
Founder Tom Thostrup says: “I’m delighted that Ellie’s Friends has merged with Maggie’s, as we will be able to reach and help even more people living with cancer around the UK. We’ve had close ties ever since Ellie and I used to visit Maggie’s West London branch after her appointments at Charing Cross Hospital so it feels like a very natural connection.”
‘We believe that together we can do more.’
We at Cancer Care Parcel wish them every success.
In terms of our own ongoing partnership with Ellie’s Friends, we are also pleased to announce that we will continue to donate an Adult Cancer Care Parcel to Ellie’s Friends every three months. AND Ellie’s Friends are also listed in the UK Cancer Directory which is hosted by Cancer Care Parcel.
