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.

Good friends and fabulous fundraisers The Christie Grafters have been fundraising for The Christie for an incredible 19 years.

Led by Chairman the lovely Lorraine Wallace and Vice Chairman and Treasurer Irene Coy, the ladies certainly live up to their name grafting away each year to raise money for The Christie! 

The Committee recently presented The Christie Charity with a cheque for £6,000 in support of the Proton Room Research Room at the hospital. The group have supported numerous projects over the years including the Teenage and Young Adult Unit and various vital pieces of equipment for patients including electronic profiling beds.

From bucket collecting in supermarkets to getting in the carnival spirit dressing in Tutti Frutti fancy dress at the annual Rishton festival, this past year of fundraising has certainly been a busy one for the ladies as well as a lot of fun!

In addition to this, the ladies have sold beautiful hanging baskets in their community raising a whopping £1,830 and held a very successful Clay Pigeon Shooting raising £3,100.

With no plans to stop anytime soon, the ladies insist that the key to successful fundraising is to have fun!

We would like to say a huge thank you to all of The Christie Grafters Committee for their incredible loyalty and support together with the generosity of their local supporters, volunteers and a special thank you to Eddie Threlfall for your support with the Clay Pigeon Shooting event.
