About The Christie Charitable Fund

The Christie Charitable Fund supports the development of cancer prevention, treatment, research and education through investment in staff, equipment, facilities and other support services at the Christie Hospital in Manchester. We provide enhanced services over and above what the NHS funds. Gifts from the public make a huge difference to the care and treatment that we are able to provide to our patients and their families. The Christie is the largest single-site cancer centre in Europe.

The charity only exists because of the fantastic support from all of our amazing fundraisers. We really value everything that our supporters do for us whether it's raising funds or giving up your time to volunteer for us. In return, we promise to ensure that we are spending your donations as cost effectively as possible to benefit as many of our patients as possible.

The charity provides continuous funding for a number of projects and services throughout the hospital including the Cancer Information Centre, Wig Service, Art Room and Complementary Therapies. We are also raising money for major developments including the Proton Beam Therapy centre and Integrated Procedures unit.

Rough Runner - Inga, Shauna and Steph

Kenny Waste Management Ltd are proud to be a corporate partner of The Christie.
Through our Social Enterprise, Driving Change, we aim to raise a minimum of £3,000 in aide of their Resources for Paediatric Patients within their Teenage & Young Adult Unit.
Each and every year, the young people within their care finish their treatment and The Christie want to give something back by offering them a gift.
In order to be able to do this, they need annual funding to provide a light at the end of the tunnel for their very young patients.
Driving Change was launched in 2018 with a view to supporting the local community around our Head Office in Greater Manchester.
We do this by providing apprenticeships, employing long-term unemployed and offering a second chance to ex-offenders.
Our aim is to change 20 lives by 2020.
As part of this initiative we have partnered with The Christie and our amazing staff are taking part in various challenges, throughout the year, to raise funds.
Below is why three staff members are taking part…
Myself (Steph), Inga and Shauna are taking part in Rough Runner, because everyone is affected by cancer at some point in their lives, it could be your family, your friend or yourself, and its not pleasant. Unfortunately It does not descriminate by age, or gender, it affects everyone, including young people and children.
So we want to do something good, trying to make a positive out of a negative. We're going to be competing in 'Rough Runner' at Arley Hall, Cheshire in June, and we need your sponsorships to help people who have cancer, get the best treatment, to shine a light at the end of that tunnel. Every penny counts, so please donate what you can!
For those not in the know, Rough Runner is an obstacle course, a bit like 'Total Wipeout'. so we will be wet, muddy and completely embarassed by the end of it. For anyone who would like to come and watch, it will make for some amazing entertainment. I can barely stay on my feet when I'm stood still!! Bring your cameras, Im sure people would pay good money to make a meme out of us on the day :)
We all work for Kenny Waste Management, and we are honoured to be supporting The Christie this year, so please help us to help them!
These girls can make a difference!

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
