Worker Bee is so proud to be supporting the Maggie’s Cancer Care centre in Manchester. As a charity, Maggie’s helps people going through treatment to find a bit of peace and quiet in such an emotionally difficult time. Their tranquil (and very impressive) architecture with plenty of greenery and soft furnishings means that you can feel right at home, and of course, make yourself a Worker Bee tea or coffee in their self-serve kitchen.
We spoke to Robin Muir, the centre head of Maggie’s Manchester to find out how important our collaboration with local charities is for the surrounding community.
What does working for Maggie’s mean to you?
‘Working for Maggie's means that I'm able to fulfil my own values about helping others. Maggie's is an organisation and environment that allows me to connect with people when they need my support and that of our wonderful team in a way that is in line with how I would want to be treated, with kindness and compassion.’
How is the connection to Worker Bee beneficial to Maggie’s?
‘Having the support of local businesses like Worker Bee is crucial to ensuring that Maggie's is here for people affected by cancer. They also help spread the message to make sure that as many people know about Maggie's as possible. Whilst some people need us now, most people will need the support of Maggie's at some point in their life, so raising awareness now helps people know to come to us when they need us. It's also greatly motivating to know we're supported by the team at Worker Bee.’
We wholeheartedly agree that Maggie’s is a brilliant local business to fund and support. But don’t just take our word for it, visit their beautiful gardens on one of their open days at the Manchester centre.
