Story

In Memory of Craig 💙 

As some of you will know we were heartbroken to loose our close friend and DigiEnable team member Craig at the end of 2019.

Craig battled with cancer (and gave it a bloody good fight) but sadly we lot him in late September, leaving a hole in our hearts. Craig was only 32 and was a fabulous, vibrate and bubbly person that would always put others first. You might have met him at our Social Media Surgeries or outdoor events over the years, he’d be the one with a big beaming smile on his face, and would try and help you as much as he could. Here's an old photo of us all, he's in the red top.

We went to visit him in his last few days at the Marie Curie Cancer Care Centre in Newcastle - the place and people (staff and volunteers) were amazing and couldn’t do any more for Craig. He said they were lovely to him, enabling him to try alternative therapies to help with the pain, and put up with his mischievous ways… He at one point tried to optimise their wifi router which was running slow – how awesome is that! That was Craig all over.

And in true Craig style, he’d want to make something massively positive out of all of this. So we are!

It costs £8,587 to run the hospice for 24 hours and we'd love to hit this target!

Can you help us make this happen in memory of Craig?

Please donate what you can.
