Safehouse announces sponsorship of a Maggie’s Penguin in partnership with Dundee & Angus Chamber of Commerce.
On behalf of The Starn Group; Safehouse, along with the Dundee & Angus Chamber of Commerce, are proud to announce our co-sponsorship of a penguin in this year’s Maggie’s Penguin Parade. There will be a trail going live on 29th June which will continue all summer culminating in a grand farewell event in Slessor Gardens on 22nd and 23rd September before a spectacular auction on 24 September 2018.
The sculpture will be located outside the Dundee and Angus Chamber of Commerce office at City Quay for the duration of the event, before being taken to auction to help raise funds for Maggie’s Centre Dundee.
Maggie’s Centres provide free practical, social and emotional support for people with cancer and their families and friends offering a programme of support that has been shown to strengthen physical and emotional wellbeing. Built in the grounds of Ninewells Hospital Maggie’s centre, designed by Frank Gehry, is warm, welcoming, and full of light and open space. It’s a place to find practical advice about benefits and eating well; a place where qualified experts provide emotional support; a place to meet other people or simply sit with a cup of tea.
The Maggie’s Centre costs £540,000 per year to run and the aim for the parade is to raise enough money to open the Maggie’s centre doors for a year.
