Fundraising for #ChristieHospital + @CR_UK #charity after research and life-saving equipment destroyed in fire

Crews were called at 10.36am after fire broke out in a three-storey building housing offices and laboratories at the front of the hospital complex on Wilmslow Road in south Manchester. It is understood no patients or operations have been affected, as the fire is centred on the Paterson Building, which houses laboratories conducting cancer research.

The Christie is one of Europe’s leading cancer treatment hospitals treating hundreds of patients each day. The fire service said one small pocket of fire is still burning within the Cancer Research UK centre, on Wilmslow Road, Withington , this morning. Three fire engines and one aerial platform remain at the site, 45-hours after they were called to the Paterson Building.

The fire is believed to have started in the roof of the Paterson Building, which is a cancer research institute, run jointly by the University of Manchester and Cancer Research UK.

The M.E.N. has joined forces with Cancer Research UK to raise money to rebuild their institute so it can carry on saving lives here and across the world

The Christie has touched all of our lives – now they need our help
