All aboard the Culture Crawl for Maggie's

Participants will raise money for Maggie's Centre Glasgow

A night walk will take people on an after-hours tour of Glasgow landmarks.

The Culture Crawl is being organised by Maggie’s Centre Glasgow, which is based in the West End.

The 10km sponsored walk takes in the city’s iconic and cultural highlights and is on September 16.

Previous ‘Culture Crawlers’ have enjoyed a route stopping by at locations such as Kelvingrove Museum, Kibble Palace and Tennent’s Brewery.

The Science Centre, The Hunterian, and Scotland Street School Museum have also been stop-offs.

Charm

Not only do participants raise money for charity, but they enjoy the added charm of experiencing the venues at night time, when the doors are usually closed.

Those taking part will enjoy live entertainment, food, and a taster of the life-changing support at Maggie's.

Maggie’s Glasgow Centre head Kerry Craig said: “We are delighted to once more be welcoming people to take part in our Culture Crawl event.

“It has always been a highlight of the year with a fantastic warm, friendly and fun atmosphere, but more importantly, as we rely almost entirely on voluntary donations, the funds raised will hugely help us to support people living with cancer.

“Cancer is possibly the most difficult experience of a person’s life and for many people the pandemic has made living with cancer even harder, meaning our professional support is needed now more than ever before.

“I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who takes part.”

Everyone who raises money will be making sure that people with cancer, as well as their family and friends, get the support they need.

There are several night walk events taking part across the UK in 2022.
