Surface Design Show is delighted to support Maggie’s Centres. Maggie's Centres offer vital practical, emotional and social support to people with cancer and their family and friends, following the ideas about cancer care originally laid out by Maggie Keswick Jencks.

Built in the grounds of NHS cancer hospitals, Maggie’s Centres are places with professional staff on hand to offer the support people need.

Their Centres are places to find practical advice about benefits and eating well; places where qualified experts provide emotional support; places to meet other people; places where you can simply sit quietly with a cup of tea.


On Friday 29 September Surface Design Show walked the annual Maggie’s Culture Crawl in London. With a team of over 20 people from organisations such as; NLA, Materials Council, Afroditi Krassa Studio and Studio Jenny Jones, the team successfully completed the 10 mile walk around the capital..

Starting off at The Design Museum, other stops included The Museum of London, The Royal Academy of Arts, Foster + Partners Studio and Maggie's new St Bart's Centre.

Maggie’s is very proud to be official Charity Partner for SDS17. All funds generously raised will go to support people with cancer across London. Design is key to our centres and it’s such a natural partnership and delighted to be working together
