The Christie

"We are the largest single site cancer centre in Europe, treating more than 44,000 patients a year. From its beginnings as a 30 bed hospital in the early 1890's to the present day, The Christie is renowned as a world pioneer in the care, treatment and research of cancer. Today we build on this legacy, translating innovation and research breakthroughs into very real patient benefits. Today's work at The Christie is tomorrow's treatments across the globe."

Kay Gaitskell challenged herself and jumped out of a plane at 15,000ft, in an adrenaline fuelled, tandem free-fall skydive in April and Michael Diggle from our supplier Wienerberger, completed the Manchester 100mile cycle ride in September, raising over £1,000 between them.
