The charities we will donate to this year on the charity day are:
The Christie is the largest cancer centre in Europe, treating 40,000 patients a year. Based in Withington with radiotherapy centres in Oldham and Salford, The Christie is known for many world-firsts which have impacted on cancer treatment across the globe.
The Christie charity provides enhanced services over and above what the NHS funds. Gifts from the public make a huge difference to the care and treatment that The Christie is able to provide to our patients and their families.
When You Wish Upon a Star has a simple mission, to grant the Wishes of children living with a life threatening illness. The charity was founded in Nottingham by Barbara White who was so inspired by a seriously ill four year old with a dream to meet Mickey Mouse that she wanted to bring smiles to the faces of many more brave and courageous children
