Groundbreaking! MoonWalkers help build another Maggie’s Centre!

How exciting to see the groundbreaking for the new Maggie’s Centre in Forth Valley today, and this is all down to our wonderful MoonWalkers and supporters who took part in The MoonWalk Scotland, enabling Walk the Walk to principally fund this amazing project! It will bring additional support to people with cancer across the Forth Valley area, and is due to open next year… we can’t wait to see this Centre become a reality!
