Some of Scotland’s top contemporary artists will be taking part in Maggie's Art Extravaganza timed online auction this August which will be hosted by Lyon and Turnbull to raise funds for Edinburgh cancer care centre, Maggie’s. The auction will open for bidding online on the 12th August and will run for one week closing at 20:30 on the 19th August.
Art and design are a key feature of every Maggie’s. The centres are unique places, a home from home that are designed to feel nothing like a hospital.
Maggie’s Edinburgh Centre Head Andy Anderson said, “We feel so privileged to have some of the country’s best artists all getting involved so that we can be there for people with cancer. The population we support have been hit hard by the pandemic so the funds raised will enable us to continue our vital support to anyone who needs us.”
"The team at Lyon & Turnbull are delighted to be able to continue to support the important work and care provided by Maggie's, a charity close to many of our hearts. The Maggie's Art Extravaganza 2021 provides a unique opportunity to support this important charity and acquire a work by one of Scotland's best loved Contemporary artists." - Alex Dove, Director
Since Maggie’s opened their first centre in 1996, the charity has developed a programme of support that is proven to help people with cancer and their loved ones take back control. Maggie’s Edinburgh relies almost entirely on voluntary donations to be able to offer this high quality, professional support. Since the start of the pandemic Maggie’s has been supporting people with cancer by phone, email and digitally. In 2020 Maggie’s supported people 239,000 times.
