Maggie’s, the charity which provides support for people living with cancer, is hosting its annual fundraising lunch to raise funds for their local cancer caring centre.

The annual Love Maggie’s Love Lunch will take place on Sunday, June 11 from noon until 5pm at Bothwell Bridge Hotel.

This year will see the return of the hilarious Scottish Comedian and radio presenter, Des Clarke and we will enjoy entertainment from The Fundamentals.

Speaking about last year’s event Des Clarke said: “It was a great day out raising money for a brilliant cause, so I’m delighted to be part of it again this year.”

Tickets cost £40 per person or £400 for a table of 10 and include a glass of bubbly on arrival with a chance to buy some items from our stall holders, 3-course lunch and a chance to have a boogie. There’ll also be a raffle and auction at the lunch to raise vital funds for Maggie’s Lanarkshire.

Lorrie Forsyth, centre head at Maggie’s Lanarkshire said: “Our lunch is always a popular event and a fantastic way to raise the funds we need to continue to support people in finding their way through cancer.”
