Maggs Day Centre charity are currently in negotiation with Worcester City Council to hold MAGGStock 2024 in Cripplegate Park & should have some official news in the next few weeks. In the meantime fundraising events all across the County are planned this for year help fund the charity festival in aid in June next year.
It all starts at the Sociable Beer Company in Worcester on Saturday 18th March with Teresa Myatt, Kaitlyn Elverson, Clare Portman, Los Neibourinos & Funky Junky Monkeys. Followed by a more laid-back Sunday afternoon affair on 9th April at the Morgan in Malvern, with Cory’s Angels, Zoe Devenish, Jay Clark, Krescendo & the Hill’s Angels.
Then there’s an all-dayer at the Bear & Wolf in Kidderminster on Saturday 29th April with Chewie, Chloe Mogg, The Ruben Seabright Trio, Ramani & Alice, Emma Howett, Drifta, Paul Beadle, Half A Clown & the legendary David Onions. Saturday 1st July sees a Maggs takeover at the Marrs Bar Worcester with Joseph Morris, The Flames, Hipflask Virgins & Jiksaw.
Then back to Kidderminster on Friday 21st July for an evening of awesomeness at 45 Live with Chewie, Wood Burnt Red, Hipflask Virgins & the incomparable Chevy Chase Stole My Wife.
Chewie, a representative from Maggs told us from venues to churches, bandstands & parks, there are lots of plans in the pipeline to make every event an awesome experience, to raise funds & awareness for the what Maggs represents and supports; the homeless & vulnerable Worcestershire.
Along with a small army of brilliant, dedicated, irreplaceable volunteers, the team specialise in providing a myriad of services to those we support. Maggs has two day centres, one on Deansway in Worcester (open Mon-Fri) & the other on Newtown Road in Malvern (open Tues & Fri).
Providing free breakfasts for rough sleepers, showers, laundry facilities, 1:1 support & safe social gathering spaces for all comers. Other services such as drop-in surgeries for GP’s, podiatrists, dentists & more along with social coffee mornings & animal therapy sessions (Jeff the Dog is a legend).
Theree’s an outreach team who operate county wide, engaging with the unengaged, the vulnerable & the isolated. There’s also a Harm Reduction Team (HRT) & an Intervention & Transition Team (ITT) who work closely to help rehabilitate those with criminal, alcohol & substance misuse problems.
Maggs also has Clothing Project (MCP) & Maggs Accommodation Project (MAP) helping to transition individuals from life on the streets to independent living & beyond.
