The Christie Hospital, the specialist cancer hospital in Manchester, has lost £6.5m following the collapse of an Icelandic bank and needs the support of the local community in Manchester in order to recover the money.
This money would have been used to help them continue to provide the same amazing levels of care for people across the North West.
The hospital has followed the agreed procedure to try to recover the money by submitting a claim to the Financial Services Compensation Scheme but this has been turned down.
Their next step is to appeal through the High Court - a route they're currently progressing.
We can all help by showing our support and visiting their website to sign an online petition.
Please push this appeal out to all your contacts and let's see if the blogosphere can make a difference for the Christie Hospital and for cancer patients in the North West of England.
