The Difference You Make

The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity is the only charity that directly raises funds to benefit The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre - one of the largest networked cancer centres in the UK.

From nine operating sites across Merseyside and Cheshire, we treat over 30,000 patients a year, offering pioneering chemotherapy, radiotherapy and proton therapy treatments.

It’s thanks to your support that we can help to make the hospital such a special place, helping our patients – young and old – get the best possible care.

By choosing to raise money for The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity, you’ll be helping to fund pioneering research, new treatments and vital support services that may otherwise be unavailable – ranging from the latest innovations in how we treat cancer to the special touches that mean so much to our patients.

Clinical Fellow Programme

As part of Clatterbridge’s ongoing research development is the commitment to ensure that our brightest junior doctors are offered the chance to develop as clinicians and as future research leaders by funding their scientific training through the Clinical Fellows Programme where they will study for a three year PhD under the supervision of expert scientists.

CCC Arts Programme

Your support will help us deliver a new program to entertain & engage our patients, families and staff with regular performances and person-centered music making activities, working with the Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra. We are also providing funding for regular participatory arts activities & using artwork to transform and enhance our centres to create welcoming spaces.

Scalp Cooler Appeal

Cancer treatment, in particular chemotherapy is hugely challenging, involving difficult side effects- both physical & psychological. For many hair loss is the first visible side effect & can be one of the most profound. We are committed to funding eight additional Scalp Cooler machines, which cost around £12,500 each - each machine will help ease the path of cancer treatment for so many people.

It’s thanks to your support that we can be at the forefront of cancer treatments: the latest equipment and technologies are essential to providing our patients with the best possible care.

The charity has funded a range of projects to help make this happen, such as bringing in new ways of treating cancer, bringing cancer treatment closer to patients’ homes and breaking boundaries by becoming the first in the UK to offer a number of treatments. We constantly need to fund new ways to provide these things for our patients. With your help, we can keep Clatterbridge as a place that stays in people’s hearts.

We are so grateful to the thousands of dedicated fundraising volunteers, supporters and donors, without whom the projects funded by the charity would not be possible. The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity has been proud to be part of a number of achievements and firsts at Clatterbridge, including
