More about Maggie's

Maggie's Centres is a UK registered charity (Reg. No. SC024414) that 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 by leading architects in the grounds of NHS cancer hospitals, Maggie’s Centres are places with professional staff on hand to offer the support people need, from practical advice to emotional support and friendly encounters. 

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.

More about the Prize

The Modern House and Cubitts have worked to create a modern matt black frame with individually forged 9ct gold hinges and custom branded lettering. The design aims at a something that is at once classic and timeless in its form, but which feels contemporary in its detailing, and which reflects principles shared by both brands – namely, simplicity of design, the use of quality materials and a high degree of craftsmanship.

The prize includes the option to have frames with either optical or sun lenses, with or without a prescription. Also included is a The Modern House-designed cleaning cloth and leather case, available in several colour options, monogrammed with a name or initials in either gold, silver, or blind lettering. 

Like all of Cubitts' frames, The Modern House’s – which they’ve named ‘Halliford' in honour of the street name their old headquarters was on – was handmade in the traditional way at the Cubitts' King’s Cross workshop. There, they went through 50 stages of manufacturing including four stages of polishing and pin drilling, which, although complicated and time-expensive, produces a higher-quality frame.



The raffle closes for entry on Thursday 28th November 2019, with the draw taking place on Friday 29th November 2019. Good luck!
