We fund life-changing and life-saving work to support cancer patients at The Christie

Charity Registration No. 1049751


Hi all, i’m Daryl, in 2004 i was diagnosed with testicular cancer, at the age of 20, following my diagnosis i was treated at the Christie hospital on the Young Oncology Unit, here i made many friends one of which was a genuinely great and inspirational friend Thomas Buckley, it was in September 2008 he was told his cancer was terminal, but rather than just admit defeat he decided he would do all he can to give something back to the hospital that tried so hard to help him fight his illness. He set out to do this by carrying out the st Bees head to Robin Hoods Bay Coast to Coast walk, a 190 mile walk across country in December.  Tom only set out to raise £500, but his inspirational story lead to him to raise £95,311.81 to date.

Unfortunately in on the 13th may 2009 Tom passed away, as a tribute to such an amazing person and inspirational friend on the 29th November, i will set out on the Coast to Coast walk in memory of Tom, the same date Tom started his journey last year, and to raise money for the Christie Young Oncology Unit. i'm aiming to do the 190 miles in 13days, accompanied by John Ackers(father of ex-patient) and Lisa Clough-Field (patient just finished treatment).
