Fundraising Groups

The Christie charity is generously supported by a number of incredible fundraising groups who go above and beyond in their activities to raise awareness and funds for the charity.

Fundraising groups can be a collection of friends, family or a community, all coming together to fundraise for a common cause, having plenty of fun along the way.

Our Community Team are here to help fundraising groups with their events from providing useful hints and tips to loaning materials such as collection buckets and presentation cheques.

If you are interested in joining one of our existing groups or would be interested in registering as a new group, please get in touch.

                   The Christie Appeals Macclesfield Group 

The Christie Appeals Macclesfield Group are one of our longest serving groups. They have been fundraising for The Christie since 1996 when they decided to support our Centenary Appeal.

From this moment, they have been one of our most successful and hardworking groups and although their numbers have dwindled over the years, their magnificent donations have continued to fund a variety of key projects at The Christie Teenage and Young Adult Unit, the new Chemotherapy Unit and countless pieces of equipment such as the Gamma Camera Scanner.

Whether it’s their multitude of collection boxes, fashion shows in conjunction with King’s School, street collections or selling Christmas cards, their dedication to The Christie cause is unceasing.

Over the last few years, they have been supporting our latest key charity project, The Proton Beam Research Room. This month they proudly presented The Christie with a cheque for £12,000. They have now donated a total of £62,000 to this fund.

Amazingly, this donation has now taken the group well over the magic £500,000 mark, yet this modest group of individuals show no signs of making a fuss, they are simply happy that they are making a difference.

We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate all members and supporters of the Christie Appeals Macclesfield Group on this wonderful achievement and long may it continue!
