Employees at global insurance firm, Howden, voted for Maggie鈥檚 to be their Groupwide UK charity partner for the next two years.


The partnership will aim to raise a staggering 拢500,000 to help Maggie鈥檚 support as many people living with cancer as possible.

Employees at Howden will raise funds for 澳门彩开奖 by taking part in activities including quizzes, static triathlons and their flagship Goodwood 24-hour cycle in July.

Unprecedented demand for cancer support


The support Maggie鈥檚 provides has never been more needed. People living with cancer have experienced an incredibly difficult few years, with the pandemic, cost-of-living crisis and pressure on the NHS making living with cancer harder than ever before.

The funding brought by the partnership will help to deliver vital cancer support across our 24 UK centres, including 6,500 financial support sessions and 4,000 psychological support sessions, to alleviate the extreme stress and anxiety that a cancer diagnosis can bring.

Maggie鈥檚 and Howden will also be working strategically to develop cancer friendly insurance and challenge the entire insurance industry to provide the best possible service to people living with cancer who are looking to secure insurance.


Challenging the insurance industry, together

Dame Laura Lee, Chief Executive at Maggie鈥檚, said: 鈥淲e鈥檙e absolutely delighted to have been chosen by Howden to be their new UK charity partner.

鈥淧eople with cancer have never faced tougher challenges 鈥 a record number of people are waiting longer than ever for cancer treatment, and for many, the cost-of-living crisis is even overshadowing the difficulties of living with cancer. This is why the demand for our support is growing every day.

鈥淥ur partnership with Howden will help Maggie鈥檚 offer practical and emotional support to thousands of people with cancer and their families across the UK. We鈥檙e also looking forward to working together to challenge the insurance industry to provide the best possible service to people living with cancer.鈥


Howden employees share cancer experiences

Dominic Collins, Executive Chairman at Howden, said: 鈥淚鈥檓 so pleased our colleagues have chosen Maggie鈥檚 as our UK charity partner.

"My wife Caroline died at 50 years old from cancer, having been diagnosed 10 years earlier when our children were aged 9, 7 and 4.

"We came to understand that the social and emotional support that Maggie鈥檚 offers to those with cancer and, as importantly, to their families, really does make a difference. I look forward to seeing what we are able to achieve together to help further Maggie鈥檚 incredibly important work.鈥

Rochelle De-Sa, Insurance Consultant at Howden, said: 鈥淚 nominated 澳门彩开奖 to be our UK charity partner because of my sister Josie's experience.

鈥淒iagnosed with a rare form of cancer at 30, she found an escape at Maggie鈥檚 during a time of great fear and uncertainty. Their support extended beyond Josie, offering comfort to our entire family during this difficult time.

鈥淛osie is now cancer free, and I'm forever grateful to Maggie鈥檚 and the amazing staff that helped her and our family.

鈥淐ancer knows no boundaries, affecting us all, and supporting Maggie鈥檚 means supporting those facing this challenge.鈥
