A charity that provides free practical, emotional and social support for people in the region with cancer, and their family and friends, is encouraging people to show their love for the cause.
Maggie’s Newcastle is asking the public to take part in their social media campaign to raise money for the centre, and awareness of the support they provide for people affected by cancer.
The charity is asking the local community to ‘Show Some Love’ by sending a picture via social media and using the hashtag #showsomelove.
Supporters can text MAGG78 to 70070 to donate £1 and then nominate two further people to do the same, aiming to spread the campaign as far as possible.
Supporters can #showsomelove for Maggie’s and donate money by taking a selfie, a picture with a loved one, a friend, colleague or pet (the more inventive, the better) and share it on social media using the hashtag #showsomelove and tagging @maggiesne
Kelly Knighting-Wykes, centre fundraising manager at Maggie’s Newcastle, said: “The #showsomelove campaign is really easy to get involved in and we hope we can encourage as many people as possible to join in and have fun with it
“By taking part supporters are helping us to raise vital funds for the Centre as well as raising awareness of the support we offer to people affected by cancer.”
