The Christie charity is committed to revolutionising the fight against cancer by funding world reaching research, treatment and care, education and additional support services.
Everything The Christie charity helps to fund is outside the scope of the NHS. This means we rely, almost entirely, on kindness of people who come forward to support the additional research, the next new treatment and even better care for our patients at The Christie.
With 84p in every pound raised going to directly to patients, our fundraisers allow us to continue to go above and beyond for our patients and their families, and ultimately bring us a step closer to a future without cancer.

Action for Pulmonary Fibrosis (APF) was set up in 2013 by a group of patients, family members and medical specialists to provide support for patients diagnosed with the devastating terminal lung disease Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF). There is no cure and limited treatments.
The condition is characterised by a build-up of scar tissue in the lungs leading to shortness of breath and eventual respiratory failure. IPF kills 5,000 people in the UK every year and it is estimated that more than 30,000 people in the UK are affected. We support patients by putting money towards research, setting up support groups and educating healthcare professionals in order to lead to earlier diagnosis.
