Miles Briggs, MSP, said: “I know the support Maggie’s provides is essential in helping people to live well with cancer, so I am delighted to be working with Tom and Barry to host our very own Kitchen Table Day in a rather special location.”

GBBO contestant Tom Hetherington, who is also part of the architectural team working on a new extension to the original Maggie’s Centre in Edinburgh, said: “The kitchen table is at the heart of every Maggie’s Centre, where people talk, laugh, drink tea and find invaluable support. It is lovely to be able to help by working with Miles and Barry to host a Kitchen Table Day.”
