Nottingham Forest to host cancer awareness event at brand new museum

Nottingham Forest have announced that they will partner with Maggie’s Nottingham to provide a cancer awareness and support event on Wednesday, April 17, from 6 to 8pm.

This  event will take place in the brand new museum located at the City Ground, which opened on Saturday, March 3.

Nottingham Forest support Maggie’s Nottingham

Maggie’s Nottingham is a centre based at the City Hospital in Nottingham. They provide support not only for people diagnosed with cancer, but also for the families of those affected. On the club website, Forest said: “3 in 5 people find the mental health challenge of cancer harder to deal with than the physical challenge.”

At a time when over 50% of the population are diagnosed with cancer at some point in their lives, Forest emphasised the importance of committing to regular support and working alongside important community services like Maggie’s.

Forest Chairman, Tom Cartledge said “This is a cause very close to my family for many years, our family had supported the Nottingham branch of the Maggie’s charity. The thought that our fan base can access their expertise, care and compassion is fantastic.”

“So many of our community will be affected by the impact of cancer and I know our club can help those suffering here at The City Ground, which for many is a safe space.”

Full details for museum event

The event will take place at the new museum at the City Ground and the attendance is limited to 50, so fans have been urged to register if they are attending.

On the club website, Forest said: “If you are living with cancer, or somebody close to you is, please come along to meet Maggie’s team of experts, find out more about the support they offer at the City Hospital and meet other people in a similar situation.”
