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: Call us on 0161 446 3988 or email


The Printworks Soul Committee

We would like to say a massive thank you to The Printworks Soul Committee who have raised a staggering  £22,581.46 for The Christie!

The money has been raised from the Manchester Soul Festival held at The Printworks on Sunday 27th August, from Northern soul nights held across Manchester and further afield throughout the year and by Darcy Byrne, granddaughter of the late soul DJ legend Frank Byrne who bravely had her hair cut live on stage at the event!

Thank you so much to all members of The Printworks Soul Committee, we can’t thank you enough for your amazing support all year round. We hope you enjoyed your visit to the hospital gardens as a thank you for your generosity and dedication to The Christie.

We would also like to say a special thank you to Darcy who has raised an amazing £755.01 in memory of her Grandad, Frank. Her hair has gone to The Little Princess Trust to help make a wig for a child who sadly lost their hair as a result of cancer treatment and other illnesses.

Darcy has written a special thank you to everyone for their kind support (pictured below). A spokesperson for The Printworks Soul Committee said: “Frank would be so proud.”
