Craig Keatley, Christie supporter

Craig’s become something of a recognisable figure for wearing flippers to take part in fundraising endurance events. But now he’s switching his famous flippers for slippers to take on a whole new set of challenges.

Before lockdown, Craig says he was lucky enough to fit in his first fundraising endurance event of 2020. This was a 40-mile slipper run from Anfield in Liverpool to the Etihad stadium in Manchester.

But now Craig’s plans for more charity events are on pause due to the COVID-19 pandemic. He, like so many others, is doing everything he can to stop the spread of the virus and help save lives.

Craig says he never takes anything for granted and is hoping later in the year to do a 110-mile slipper walk all the way from Scarborough to Manchester.

Previously, Craig has manged to raise over £7,000 for The Christie charity since 2017. Last year, he took part in our Touching Lives campaign to talk about why he supports us.

Craig’s fundraising may be on hold due to the pandemic but his support for The Christie definitely isn’t. He wants to let people know how important it is to support The Christie charity at this time.

“Everything I do is for The Christie, a charity that means so much to my girlfriend who successfully fought off cancer for 4 years. The Christie does make a difference and saves lives.
“You can’t switch off cancer which is why it’s so important to continue the support for this amazing charity.”
