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

  • 81p in every pound raised goes directly to benefit patients and their families.
  • Treating more than 44,000 patients each year, we were the first UK centre to be officially accredited as a comprehensive cancer centre and, as a national specialist, 26% of our patients are referred here from hospitals across the UK.
  • The Christie is the first hospital in the UK to have a Proton Beam Therapy Treatment Centre, offering cutting edge radiotherapy treatment.

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 UK’s first recently opened Proton Beam Therapy Unit, your donations are having a positive impact every single day.
