The Christie

The Christie

The Christie charity provides enhanced services for The Christie NHS Foundation, a specialist cancer centre, over and above what the NHS funds. Gifts from the public make a huge difference to the care and treatment that The Christie is able to provide to our patients and their families.

Facts about our job

  • The Christie will be the first hospital in the UK to have a proton beam therapy centre, offering cutting edge radiotherapy treatment.
  • The Christie has the largest single-site early phase clinical trials unit in Europe, with over 400 trials taking place at any one time.
  • In 2015-16 almost half of our income came from Gifts in Wills.

Each and every pound you give makes a real difference to our patients, their families and friends.

The Christie charity raises money for a range of projects and initiatives focusing on 4 main areas, research, care and treatment, education and extra patient services. All of which are above and beyond what the NHS provide enabling us to give our patients the best care and treatment possible.

Your donations really do have an impact at The Christie. Without the support of our fantastic fundraisers we would not be able to give our patients and their families the level of care and support that we do.

From providing continuous funding for the Cancer Information Centre and Wig Service, helping patients and their families cope with the effects of treatment, to raising money for new developments such as the recently opened Teenage and Young Adult unit, your donations are having a positive impact every single day.
