John Sutch Cranes, Christie fundraiser

John Sutch Cranes are a crane hire company based in Manchester and Liverpool. To show their support and raise awareness for The Christie charity, the company have wrapped their new Grove GMK5200 crane with Christie livery.

Over the next 3 years, John Sutch Cranes will pledge a percentage of the rental income from the crane to The Christie charity, and encourage customers to make their own donation as well. This will help to support cancer care and treatment at The Christie, over and above what the NHS funds.

The crane has already worked on projects including Great Ormond Street Hospital in London and the new arena at the Etihad. It has also had some visits to The Christie itself, working as part of the construction fleet at the new tiered car park at The Christie.

“We are really excited to use this new crane to do our bit for The Christie. It’s a big crane that will travel up and down the motorway to jobs all over the country so will be seen by a lot of people – and The Christie’s livery looks absolutely great.
“Almost everyone is touched by cancer in some way and The Christie is close to the heart of many of our staff at John Sutch Cranes. Like many charities, its usual income has been affected over the last year and we want to give a little back.
“The uptake so far has been fantastic and we have lots of bookings for the crane. There isn’t a set amount we would like customers to donate but whatever they can contribute will be much appreciated and make a real difference to the lives of people in our community.”

“We are absolutely thrilled with the support from John Sutch Cranes. This advertising highlights the everyday work of The Christie, talking about saving lives, making breakthroughs, holding hands, wiping tears, lifting spirits, raising funds, ringing bells and beating cancer.
“This crane will be seen throughout the UK and will raise essential awareness of the charity. We are really looking forward to working with John Sutch Cranes to make a huge success of this opportunity.”

  - Anna McIntosh, major relationships development manager at The Christie Charity
