Story

My Justgiving page closes tomorrow. A massive thank you to everyone who sponsored me to look like a first-class fool. I've raised £1,307 in total - enough to fund a Macmillan nurse for a week and still have enough spare change to pay for two Macmillan grants that cover the costs of a person's travel to hospital for treatment. Thank you.

It's my last day of being a Christmas tree today. Help me celebrate the new year and lob me a donation if you can. Happy New Year Everyone! www.justgiving.com/craigtree

I got beeped at four times on the way to the shop today. Typical men. Behaving like animals over a bit of (green felt) skirt.

Thank you everyone. The response from you guys has been phenomenal. Thank you so much.

Merry Christmas!

Throughout December I will be wearing a ridiculous Christmas tree costume to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support. Each day I will add a new decoration to my tree and if you want to decorate me with something of your own, pledge some money and I'll pin it on. The worse your Christmas decoration is the more you have to cough up, so get your credit card ready.

I'm not going to lie, I probably haven't thought it through and going to the toilet is going to be difficult. But I'm not doing it for me. I'm doing it to help Macmillan reach and improve the lives of everyone affected by cancer...and hopefully inspire you to do the same.

Craig the Human Christmas Tree - Day Minus 6. Keep an eye out for my daily Christmas tree photo diary. I'll be documenting what I look like with each new decoration.
