We are so proud to announce that UK Galaxy Pageants will be supporting The Christie charity! The Christie is the largest cancer centre in Europe treating more than 40,000 patients a year and an international leader in research. Cancer research in Manchester, most of which is undertaken on The Christie site, has been officially ranked best in the UK, with much work having an impact around the world.
They are home to the largest early clinical trials unit in the world, one of the largest radiotherapy departments across the glove and the biggest chemotherapy unit in the UK. They also offer highly specialist surgery for complex and rare cancers and a wide range of support services, not just for their patients but their loved ones as well.
The Christie charity raises money to help fund cancer research, medical equipment, new developments and all those extra services that make so much of a difference to patients, such as counselling, complementary therapies, our wig service and our cancer information centre.
