Havas Lynx Group, Christie fundraisers

Havas Lynx Group have been supporters of The Christie charity for many years and have already raised over £17,000. The global healthcare communications group are based in Manchester city centre and decided to take part in The Christie Challenge to complete 6 fundraising activities in 12 months.

Havas Lynx Group also has a CSR committee set up to ensure they are maximising their fundraising to make the biggest difference to our cancer patients.

The committee at Havas Lynx Group were looking for a new challenge to keep their fundraising exciting and decided that all 14 of their internal teams would take on The Christie Challenge.

The teams at Havas Lynx Group rose to the challenge and organised a wide range of fundraising activities. Some of the teams’ activities included raffles, bake sales, Christmas donations, quiz nights and ‘bucket list bingo’. One team even created their own calendar filled with fun and inventive posed shots for every month of 2022. They sold their calendar to other teams at Havas Lynx Group and raised £370 for The Christie charity.

“Each year, when it comes to supporting our local charities and organisations, without a doubt The Christie always ranks highly amongst our employees, encouraging us to continue our support. As a healthcare communications agency, it’s always made perfect sense for us to align our corporate social responsibility work with an organisation that is so in tune with our ethos, but we also have many employees who have a personal connection to The Christie and the critically important care it delivers to patients.
“Taking part in The Christie Challenge was a no-brainer and has been enjoyed by many to continue championing such a fantastic cause and to support the funding of those all-important services and facilities, which will impact the lives of many.’

  - Vikki Ward, Chief Production Officer, Havas Lynx Group

“We are delighted that the Havas Lynx Group have chosen to support The Christie again this year.
“Taking on The Christie Challenge across 14 teams is such an amazing and fun way to fundraise and is a good way to get lots of colleagues involved in raising vital funds.
“The funds raised will make a real difference and change the lives of cancer patients at The Christie, both now and in the future.
“We are really looking forward to working alongside Havas Lynx and supporting their challenges this year. It will make such a difference and we are excited to see how many medals they achieve!”

  - Emily Burgin, corporate fundraising officer at The Christie charity
