Event description
Opening it's doors this autumn, Maggie's Yorkshire is a state of the art cancer support centre.

About this Event

All Maggies Centres are built around the understanding of how environment can affect our wellbeing. The buildings, interiors and gardens are carefully designed to help people with cancer feel relaxed, welcomed and more in control.

The Centres are names after Maggie Keswick Jencks (wife of Charles Jenks). Each Centre is unique and designed by leading architectural practices.

There are 50 NHS Cancer Centres in the UK and Maggies intend to be in 50% of them by 2021.

The Maggie’s Yorkshire Centre at St James’ Hospital in Leeds will be no. 25. A Country Life article claimed ‘Maggies Leeds will be the most important public landscape to be created in decades’. The landscape designer is Marie-Louise Agius of Balston Agius.

The building designed by Heatherwick Studios appears to grow from the earth and is supported by timber rib vaulted sides and ceilings with lime mortar infills. Flat roofs continue the landscaping with trees atop, forming a garden of healing using native plants in a ground breaking manner.

Join us on Wednesday 4 December at 1700 hrs for a visit to the new Maggie’s Yorkshire Centre at St James’ Hospital in Leeds. See the ground-breaking building as well as landscaping whilst learning about the ethos of the Centre and support offered to anyone affected by cancer.

There will be an opportunity to make voluntary contributions to the centre on our visit, and a Trust donation will be presented to the Centre.

Meet at 1700 hrs by Reception in Foyer of the Bexley Wing,

St James’s Hospital, Beckett Street, LS9 7TF

Getting there: Bus Nos. 16, 16A, 49, 50, 50A or Park in Hospital Multi storey car park next to the Centre.
