“Hold your face to the sun, and let the shadows fall behind you.”

We are heartbroken to announce that our beautiful Chrissie passed away in the early hours of Tuesday 20th July 2021. Please click here to read the statement from her family here.

Chrissie Jackson was a very familiar face in Newquay – as the co-founder of the Newquay Voice, photographer and sailor.

In 2019, Chrissie was given the devastating news that she had stage 4 cancer. There was no cure, purely prolonging her life for as long as they could. But this didn’t mean that she was just going to sit back and giving up. Quite the opposite.

Over the last two years, along with support from friends (old and new), family and supporters around the globe Chrissie made it her mission to support those in similar positions, shine a light on the amazing charities and causes close to her heart through Chrissie’s Sunshine Appeal.

From ‘Chemo in Cool Places’, to fundraising events with her beloved clipper crews and friends in Newquay – there’s so many stories to tell, and we hope that this website and the Facebook page will inspire and remember our beloved daughter, sister, aunty and friend.

In memory of our dear friend, Chrissie.
