Jayne Doyle, Christie supporter

Jayne started working at The Christie as an integrated therapist with the complementary health and wellbeing service in March 2020. This was just days before the country went into lockdown as part of the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions.

Wanting to do something to support The Christie during a difficult time, Jayne signed up for the Walk of Hope 2020 event. The Walk of Hope is always an emotional event and helps show support for anyone affected by cancer.

Sadly, due to the changes in restrictions for the COVID-19 pandemic, the Walk of Hope 2020 event was cancelled. But Jayne’s still determined to do her part to help support The Christie charity.

On Saturday 26 September, Jayne and her friend will be taking part in a virtual Walk of Hope event. Support for The Christie charity like Jayne’s helps us keep providing outstanding care to cancer patients. It means we can still keep touching lives, today, tomorrow and beyond.

“We had to adapt our service overnight to be able to remain onsite and support our patients to enhance resilience, cope with treatment and feel more comfortable.
“I am privileged to be working at The Christie in such times and would not be here if it were not for the funding of The Christie charity.
“My friend and I will be still be going to Tatton Park and walking the 10km. My intention is to throw a stone in the lake to remember all those I have met whilst in post, since working here.”
