Celebrating 50 Years of Coexistence supporting Maggie’s

On 5th June 2024, Coexistence hosted a special evening at the Maggie’s Barts Centre to celebrate our 50th Anniversary and to launch a new fundraising campaign to raise £50,000 in its 50th Year for Maggie’s.  Thank you to all who came and made it such a special evening, and for all the good wishes and gifts we have received since. We certainly hope that everyone who attended enjoyed it as much as we did.

Thank you to everyone who has generously donated so far. Your support means a lot to us and will make a significant difference.

Can you help us reach our target? If so, please visit our JustGiving page here.

Every donation, no matter the size, brings us one step closer to our goal and helps Maggie’s to continue their important work.


Ten years ago, Coexistence raised funds to help introduce a second Maggie’s Centre to London, Maggie’s Barts. Since then, two new centres have been built across the city, and we are proud to have been part of ensuring that anyone in London who needs it has access to a Maggie’s Centre.

Maggie’s in London (Barts, Royal Free, Royal Marsden and West London) will facilitate over 70,000 visits from people with cancer in 2024.

Maggie’s conducted a survey that found one in two people with cancer consider stopping treatment early because of money worries. Their Benefit advisors offer individual advice and support on the benefits that apply to people with cancer, and their families and friends. In 2023, Maggie’s helped visitors to London centres claim £8.4million, and this is expected to increase to £9million in 2024.

£20 could help pay for a session with a Benefits Advisor for help and advice on money worries and the extra support that may be available. This means Maggie’s visitors can stop worrying about finances and focus on treatment.

£35 could help pay for a session of support with a Clinical Psychologist to manage stress and anxiety, and if feeling scared, worried, or if things are becoming overwhelming.

£250 could help pay for a six-week bereavement course, led by our psychologists to support our centre visitors in dealing with loss, helping to find a way to start moving forward.

Thank you.
