The Queen dedicated her life to public service and we remember her unwavering support of the NHS. We have fond memories of when she visited The Christie to meet staff and patients and celebrate our work in cancer treatment and research.
Our heartfelt condolences are with the Royal Family at this time.
Following the death of Her Majesty The Queen, we are now in a period of national mourning.
The Christie charity is part of an NHS Trust, and as such we must follow strict government protocol and guidance as to what we can and can’t do in this time. Anything that does not directly affect the day-to-day running of the hospital has been cancelled as a mark of respect. This includes not sending charity staff representatives to events like the Great North Run and rescheduling our own Walk of Hope event.
We hope you understand that we do not take decisions such as this lightly.
We want to reassure you that your support, and the support of all of our fundraisers, means so much to us. So much of the good work that happens at The Christie could not happen without your generosity.
Thank you for everything you do for us.
