Volunteers are vital to The Christie charity. Our charity events and day-to-day work could not function without their generous support. 

If you volunteer for The Christie charity, you can help us to raise vital funds to benefit cancer patients. And what’s more, you’ll meet new people, gain new skills and have lots of fun!
