Children In Need: David Tennant Hears Isla And Eleanor’s Story


As part of last night’s Children In Need David Tennant visited Maggie’s to talk to Isla and Eleanor who very sadly lost their mum, Helen, to cancer. He spoke to the girls and their Dad, Duncan, about how Maggie’s have helped support them for over 10 years.

Watch the video below:


Maggie’s provides free 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.
The 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.
The first Maggie’s Centre opened in Edinburgh in 1996 and since then Maggie’s has continued to grow, with 20 Centres at major NHS cancer hospitals in the UK and abroad. Maggie's also has an Online Centre.
