Hennesea – Maggs Benefit Gig

11 Nov 2023

To Kidderminster for a benefit gig in aid of Maggs Day Centre, a Worcestershire based charity that supports the homeless and vulnerable.  Maggs Day Centre provides the basics, a lifeline to help people survive the worst of what life throws at them.

We operate through our two day centres in Worcester and Malvern, alongside our Clothing Project and Accommodation Project.

These are operated by our friendly and caring team, from our Support Workers to our Outreach team, we are committed to helping and mentoring all those who are ready to make changes, to start getting their lives back on track.

About Maggs

Maggs was founded in 1984 after a homeless man died after years of sleeping rough on the streets.

His death prompted a day centre to be created in the former St Albans church on 21st December 1985, dedicated to helping the homeless people of Worcestershire.

The Queen's Award for Voluntary Service

In 2016, Maggs Day Centre was recognised with The Queen’s Award For Voluntary Service. This prestigious award is described as the MBE for volunteer groups.
