Helping those with Cancer: Stick It To Cancer #SITC
At Bell, we want to give our customers the opportunity to support organizations who are doing good in the community.  This year it's our pleasure to present, Stick it to Cancer.  100% of donations will go toward Maggie's West London who support over 1.8 million people with cancer and their family and friends.  You can learn more about Maggie's and their incredible mission below.

When you purchase a drumstick with ourselves you'll also be given the option to donate an extra pound towards Maggie's West London centre. You can do this both in our shop and online here by adding a £1 donation product to your shopping cart. Every pound that is donated through these stick purchases will also be matched by ourselves, meaning your £1 donation will become £2! 

"In the UK 1 in 3 people are expected to receive a cancer diagnosis in their lifetime. Maggie’s exists to support everyone with cancer and their family and friends, at any time and wherever they are. We provide emotional, practical and social support on NHS hospital grounds. At Maggie’s people can drop-in any time without an appointment, for as long as needed, and our service is free.

Each of our 21 Centres offers a wide range of courses as well as one-to-one psychological support, benefit advice and a daily drop-in service. Our visitors do not need to be referred in any way."

"Our West London Centre, based on the grounds of Charing Cross Hospital in Hammersmith, was opened in April 2008. Designed by Richard Rogers, the iconic building serves a population of over 1.8 million people where around 3,000 people are diagnosed with cancer every year.

Maggie’s does not receive any money from the NHS or Government and it costs £2,400 to run the centre for one day. Our West London Centre supports 80 - 100 Centre visitors per day, amounting to 23,000 per year"

We'll also be appointing sponsored tasks on members of staff, keep an eye on our social media to see what we get up to. You can sponsor us via our JustGiving page, and any donations are greatly appreciated!

A big thank you from the Bell Music Team and Maggie's!
