Donations (including Events and Memorial Donations)

We are now asking our supporters to undertake events for/ donate to The Christie Charity for the reasons given in our News section.

There are various ways of supporting CUP research with the Christie. Because the Charity supports different types of cancer it is important to show that you want your donations to be for CUP.

The Christie Charity Standing Order Form

The Christie Charity Direct Debit Form

Donations. For one off donations, if there is no specific ‘drop down’ for CUP, then include CUP A01070 in any remarks. (The standing order and direct debit mandates are specifically drafted for CUP.)

Fundraising and Awareness Materials

As one of our main objectives is to raise awareness of CUP, we have a range of items that remain available:


We supply our T-shirts free of charge to anyone taking part in a ‘challenge’ event.

 Pin badges and wristbands

We will continue to sell the pin badge and the wristband for £1 each until end December 2023. The badge comes with a small backing card giving brief details of CUP: a great tool for raising awareness. The embossed writing on the blue wristband reads:

Wordsmith – the Gift of a Soul

Wordsmith cover

This inspiring book is the collected poetry of a young vet, struck down by CUP, compiled by her author mother:

It’s about raising awareness as much as money

Our concerns are to: raise awareness of CUP, support CUP research and provide information and support to patients and carers. This may seem like an enormous task but as Chinese philosopher Lao-tzu (604 BC – 531 BC) is reputed to have said: A journey of a thousand miles begins with one step. If CUP is to be ended it will be as a result of medical and technical expertise. But the impetus for change and the imagination to do things differently will come from you and me – people affected by CUP.

Steps you can take

Start the conversation! Talk to anyone you can so that they recognise that CUP exists and that it is a significant but little known phenomenon. Explain that it is a problem which is resolvable but only if there is a demand for action. It may seem a minority problem to doctors and researchers but it is hugely significant to those who are touched by it.

Annual report and accounts

You can see our annual reports, whist we have been a charity, on the Charity Commission website. The quickest way to find our entry is to search by our charity number:1119380. These reports show our annual income and expenditure and note our achievements each year set against our objectives.
