Chrissie Cairns

Chrissie Cairns is taking part in the iconic TCS London Marathon in April in support of women, children and families.

Chrissie, aged 60, is a keen runner from Grazeley. She said: “I have done a marathon before but I have always wanted to say that I took part in the London Marathon and to do it for a supportive charity is a dream come true.”

“A friend was talking about PACT and the work it does and I wanted to give something back and raise money for this local charity.”

Chrissie is one of seven members of Team PACT who will be running the 26.2 miles around the streets of London on 23rd April.

She has a £2,000 fundraising target and is collecting donations to her page at

“I am looking forward to all the crowds cheering us all on and I love being encouraged to keep going!”
